After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) tried to rewrite, with lies and distortions, its handling of the Coronavirus, it shouldn’t surprise us that CCP has also decided to rewrite a Bible story.
In John 8, we read how Jesus saved the women caught in adultery. When the pharisees brought the woman to Christ asking what should be done with her, Jesus said that anyone without sin could cast the first stone. As the Lord began to write words in the dirt, one by one, the woman’s accusers skulked away. Jesus finished by telling the woman that He didn’t condemn her either. It was a story of God’s grace and forgiveness.
Christian Headlines explains CCP’s rewrite of this account:
(CHRISTIAN HEADLINES) – The biblical story of Jesus saving the woman caught in adultery has been twisted and given a new ending in a Chinese textbook, with Jesus killing the woman and telling her that He, too, is a sinner, according to a new report.
The textbook, published by the government-run University of Electronic Science and Technology Press, is used to teach “professional ethics and law” in vocational schools, according to Union of Catholic Asian News, which first reported the controversy. […]
The Chinese textbook, though, changes the ending, according to UCA News. The textbook says, “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 irony is this is supposed to be a course on ethics and the law. So it gives you an idea how the Communist Party’s justice system works. It lies. It makes up stories. It distorts the truth.
