The redoing of God’s word has been going on since the time of the apostles. The Communists are not doing anything new.
Galatians 1:6-7 KJV I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
2 Peter 2:1 KJV But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction
Why does Beijing seek, as Mr. Lian puts it, “to drain Christianity of its spirit”? One explanation is generalized hostility to religion. The Communist Party “sees religion as an enemy,” says Sophie Richardson, China director at Human Rights Watch.
Other religious minorities have suffered greatly in recent years, most notably Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang province. But the party sees Christianity, which some estimates suggest is the country’s fastest-growing religion, as a unique threat. Mr. Lian cites three major reasons. First, Christianity is an international religion. Bonds of affection and solidarity link Christians around the world to their brethren in China. Second, it is congregational: “You have this ability to mobilize a stable, reliable community.” Congregations helped topple dictatorships in South Korea and Poland. Third, and perhaps most important, Christianity’s “transcendent vision, transcendent values” present the Communist Party with an insuperable “moral and ideological rivalry,” Mr. Lian says, because Chinese people largely see the party’s Marxist-Leninist foundation as a spent force.
2 Peter 1:20 KJV Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
The bible foretells events that have been fulfilled and will be fulfilled. This means holy scripture will never be outdated. God’s Word will always be relevant to every generation.
People want the glory that only belongs to God. They believe they can shut the true gospel and the church down. They do not have the authority or power to accomplish that task.
1 Peter 1:23-25 KJV Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
The hate toward God will increase as we head closer to the Tribulation.
