Jesus, according to the Chinese Communist government, is now a “sinner.”
A report from CBN News reveals that the leftist repressives in the government are facing a revolt among their own citizens, and now are rewriting the Bible in order to suppress the faithful.
The report explained one example was the Communist Party version of John chapter eight, where Jesus challenges those who caught a woman in adultery to examine their own lives.
The perverted version now states: “Jesus once said to the angry crowd who was trying to stone a woman who had sinned, ‘He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.’ When his words came to their ears, they stopped moving forward. When everyone went out, Jesus stoned the woman himself, and said, ‘I am also a sinner.’”
The problem threatening Chinese officials is that there now are estimated to be some 130 million Chinese Christians. There are more Christians in China than members of the CCP, the report said.
“The Chinese are no longer content with all of these attempts to try to forcibly get Christians to deny their faith,” explained Tina Ramirez of Hardwired Global. “And so now they’ve just taken it to a new level where they’re trying to rewrite the scripture and what the Bible says, to confuse them and to prevent them from becoming Christians.”
Bob Fu of ChinaAid told CBN, “So, this is happening right now. We have seen the escalation. Bibles for children is totally forbidden. And all the Bible apps and Bible-related apps were forcefully removed from every e-commerce app store. Millions of Chinese Christian children were forced to sign a form renouncing their faith in public.”
Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs said the CCP is frightened because it is “always about control.”
“And they see the Gospel, they see the Christian message as something that would take control away from the Communist Party.”
