The complete edition of China’s Confession was produced in 2000 and it became an immediate sensation among Chinese on both sides of the Pacific Ocean.
The Chinese call their land “The Land of God.” This documentary is an enlightening inside look into China and how that progress is being made to live up to that phrase, but how it has not always been so. We see a totalitarian government which denied God’s existence and treated rebels in the land with torture and death. We see fires burning, a man hit in the face with a strap, corpses lying on the ground and skulls, the ultimate symbol of death. Yet, by this film’s conclusion, we see church services and worship of God and many converts to Christianity and a healing of sorts in the land.
Due to a few of the violent moments, which are not gratuitous, we are awarding our Dove Seal to this DVD for ages twelve plus. It is powerful, and moving, and mentions there being tens of millions of Christians now in China. It leaves the viewer with hope for the future.
