China Trying to 'Rewrite the Bible,' Force Churches to Sing Communist Anthems

The Chinese government is supervising a five-year plan to make Christianity more compatible with socialism in which there will be a "rewrite" of the Bible, a prominent religious freedom activist has told Congress.

The Rev. Bob Fu, a former Chinese house church leader who immigrated to the United States in 1997 and founded the persecution watchdog organization China Aid, provided great detail during a House hearing Thursday about a plan enacted by leading state-sanctioned denominations in China to "Sincize" Christianity.

As China's crackdown on religion has seen many house churches demolished and thousands of crosses removed from churches nationwide, Fu warned upfront that what is happening right now in China represents the highest degree of persecution for independent faith groups the country has seen in decades. ...

Wonder if Harper Collins is helping with the role out of this new and improved version of the Bible. China’s Communist government appears to be circling the wagons for an epic fall. May take a dozen more years, but it appears they’re headed that way ,as well.

It does remind me of the situation in Germany under Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s and the early 1940’s.

Basically, though from a nominally Catholic background, (and some of his chief henchmen were from a nominally Lutheran or Reformed Protestant background), Adolf Hitler despised Christianity.

Early on in his evil reign he quickly suppressed all religious youth and cultural organisations, in favour of the Hitler Youth for boys and the League of German Girls, (I can’t recall the exact name) for girls, banned all organised church activities outside the church building, and then cooked up a scheme with compromising Roman Catholic and Protestant clergymen, to bring the church completely under his control.

The Roman Catholic hierarchy largely supported him, with some notable exceptions, and the Protestant churches were more or less amalgamated under a single Reichs Bishop, as the German Protestant Church. A few Lutherans did refuse to cooperate, and paid the penalty.

The churches, Catholic and Protestant, hung swastikas inside and outside the building, observed Nazi state holidays, read out speeches from Hitler and his associates, and preached previously written and state approved sermons, using a “religious” monthly magazine printed by the Nazi state.

Meanwhile, Hitler,

Someone has been trying to rewrite the Bible since the Garden of Eden. That’s why we have so many “versions.”

The problem with apps is they could change the words and you wouldnt know.
With all the differences between translations and then their subsequent updates, things do change or lose power due to weaker words.
I would want a Bible in my hands if I was in a place under persecution.
I pray our Brothers and Sisters in China receive the strength to keep on the path.

We can't really know until we get it in our hands.

I'm meeting with a 3 self church leader who is my good friend and a real faithful believer soon. I think the young generation don't use printed bibles anyway, but android apps.
There aren't that many of them either... most 3 self churches are made up of old people.

If the Bible is not compatible with socialism now, which way too many claim, why does the Chinese government have to rewrite it? Chilling way to use that term "Authorized Version," huh?

There is likely a Chinese nationalist twist to it, so my comment above may not fully apply.

YIA, what's your take?
