A Christian minister in Hong Kong say that a Christian TV channel which began broadcasting in January could be putting viewers on the mainland at risk. God TV, which can be seen in Hong Kong on cable, says its mission extends into China. But pastor Brett Hilliard of the Evangelical Community Church told the South China Morning Post that the advice to send videos into China was irresponsible, as it could increase the scrutiny on Chinese Christians and put them at risk.
God TV, launched in Britain in 1995 by Rory and Wendy Alec, broadcasts around the world via 10 satellites. Wendy Alec has written an apocryphal book in which she predicts a struggle between the forces of good and evil in China. Chinese are not permitted to belong to Christian groups other than the officially approved patriotic churches.
