Communist China Bans Online Bible Sales -- Crosses Removed From Churches

(Worthy News) - The Communist Chinese government banned the sale of Bibles online this week and released a new document dictating its "Policies and Practices on Protecting Freedom of Religious Belief."

By Thursday, April 5, "internet searches for the Bible came up empty on leading online Chinese retailers, such as, Taobao, and Amazon," reported the New York Times.

Christianity is the only religion in China, according to The Times, in which its primary holy book, the Bible, is banned online. Books from other religions such as Buddhism, Taoism, and Islam are available. The Quran is not banned online. [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]

  1. No, its just because the communist party has always had it out for the Christian faith. I've known several families from the former USSR who have story after story of torture and imprisonment, and they've done the same thing In China and Cuba and N. Korea

  2. It does lend truth to the idea that it is, then, only Christianity's manual (the Bible) which sets men (humankind) free of the yokes of slavery.

    Otherwise, why ban it? It certainly doesn't have more violence in it than a Koran does. It has no special condemnation of the far east, or China by that name or any other name.

    It could only be the effect it has on those who subject their lives to a Bible, as God's (written) Word to mankind, which so scares the rulers in China. Why ban something that has no power? China isn't so foolish as to do that.
