So-called cult leader
There has been no update on Ju Dianhong’s condition since February 2021.
Sentenced in 2017
A Lincang court in southern Yunnan Province harshly sentenced Ju Dianhong to 13 years in prison. The CCP falsely accused her of leading a cult as part of a province-wide crackdown. She was tried and convicted at the same time as Liang Qin, who was sentenced to 10 years for “cult activity.”
Three Grades of Servants
Ju emphasized that she had never heard of the “Three Grades of Servants,” the religious sect CCP authorities accused her of leading. Police claimed Ju recruited members, did missionary work, and spread news of the apocalypse. On the other hand, Ju Dianhong said she was unfamiliar with cults until she was accused of leading one.
She pleaded with the court that she only participated in orthodox Christian ministry. In the court’s final verdict, authorities labeled her books, such as Pilgrim’s Progress and Streams in the Desert, as “evil cult” materials.
Ju continues to deny any cult involvement and has appealed her case along with Liang Qin. The court upheld its original sentencing. During the initial trial, Ju Dianhong defended herself:
“I only believed in and preached about Jesus, never harming anyone or acting contrary to biblical principles.”
Unfortunately, there are no other photos of this prisoner.
