Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
It isn’t any surprise that the CCP has rewritten the Bible to suit its own purpose but one would not think a supposedly ‘Christian’ organization would be in agreement with such. Well, that is exactly what has occurred as ‘The central message of the Christian gospels is love and forgiveness. In various parables, Jesus upsets the strict Judaic laws by preaching a message of compassion and pardon. Well known amongst these parables is John’s account of the woman taken in adultery and brought by the Pharisees to Jesus, asking if, in accordance with the laws of Moses, she should be stoned. When pressed for an answer, Jesus responded: ‘If any of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.’ Shamed by these words, the crowd retreated, leaving Jesus alone with the woman. ‘Has no one condemned you?’ he asked. ‘No one, Sir,’ she replied. ‘Then neither do I condemn you. Go now and leave your life of sin.’
One doesn’t have to be a Christian to understand the essential message of this 2,000-year-old account. Imagine then the scandal to the Christian church of a re-writing of this central Gospel message. But that is what the Chinese Communist Party has done. In a textbook published by the CCP-approved University of Electronic Science and Technology Press for teaching ‘professional ethics and law’ in secondary vocational education, the story is obscenely changed: ‘The crowd wanted to stone the woman to death as per their law. But Jesus said, “Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone.” Hearing this, they slipped away one by one. When the crowd disappeared, Jesus stoned the sinner to death saying, “I too am a sinner. But if the law could only be executed by men without blemish, the law would be dead”.’
This rewriting of Christian doctrine is but the latest event in the increasing repression of religion in China. Religious buildings have been closed and torn down, Communist party symbols and photos of Xi Jinping have replaced sacred images, believers have been persecuted, imprisoned and sent to concentration camps. No religion is immune: Buddhists, Muslims, Christians and others have all been targeted.
Not only is religion being repressed under Xi, the CCP is seeking to ‘sinicise’ it. Speaking to the National Conference on Religion in 2016, President Xi said: ‘In order to encourage religions to adapt to our socialist society, we need to lead believers to… embrace the leadership of the CCP and the socialist system, adhere to the Chinese socialist path, practice core socialist values, promote Chinese culture and endeavour to integrate religious tenets with Chinese culture, abide by state laws and regulations and voluntarily comply with the law-based management by the state…’.
Voices across the globe are increasingly speaking out about the persecution, repression and gross abuses of human rights by the Chinese communist regime. But one voice has been strangely silent: the leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis. Not only has the pope been mute, the Vatican entered into a secret agreement with the Communist regime and has renewed it. The agreement has not prevented the persecution of Christians; to the contrary, the repression has increased.’ https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/11/on-the-vatican-and-china/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=OZWH%20%2020201107%20%20AL&utm_content=OZWH%20%2020201107%20%20AL+CID_3b76ec7e531d74e43d3c90137e6fe1ab&utm_source=CampaignMonitor_Australia&utm_term=On%20the%20Vatican%20and%20China
It shouldn’t be any surprise to those who know the Bible that the present day leader of the Roman establishment is preparing for that future one world religion.
