‘Go and sin no more’, these are the most ‘gospel’ words found in the Bible and they come after another equally heavier statement from Jesus on how we are to relate one to another, ‘he who has no sin should cast the first stone’.
Both phrases are found in one of the most beautiful tales of the life of Christ here on earth and the purpose of His mission. To come and bring the lost ot God, not to condemn, judge nor punish, but to deliver the ever lasting gospel, that ‘he who comes to the Father by me might be saved’. John 14:6
But the Chinese communist government thinks this is too much power/confidence on one person. Actually they tend to believe Jesus was no more than them, might actually be way less then the lowest communist leader in the ranks, so their only option is to water down Jesus and it seems they have chosen this story as their first launch.
A communist textbook that’s being used in Chinese schools falsifies the biblical account found in John 8:3–11. The textbook claims that Jesus murdered the woman who was found in adultery and said He, too, is a sinner.
The textbook, published by the government-run University of Electronic Science and Technology Press, states: “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.’”
The news of the distortion of the Bible in the Chinese textbook comes as the Vatican and China are expected to renew a deal on the appointment of Catholic bishops in China. The United States has advised Pope Francis against it due to the severe violation of human rights and religious freedom in the communist country.
But this might actually be the last straws of the sweeping measures the government took to destroy Christianity, and Islam in China.
In China, it is illegal to posses the bible, attend church (most churches have been destroyed and the pastors arrested). Home churches have been banned and all other churches allowed to open must have their teachings comply with the communist wishes.
Muslims have not been left alone as more than 1 million are held in camps where reports show they are tortured, some mutilated, women forced to undergo operations to stop them from bearing children and the most radical is their mind treatment program to undo their beliefs in religion.
Truly living in the end times.
