Chinese pastors ordered to base sermons on book comparing Bible to Confucianism
Chinese government officials are demanding that clergy affiliated with the state-sanctioned protestant church base their sermons on a new book that blends biblical teachings with the teachings of Confucius.

The Chinese human rights magazine Bitter Winter reports that clergy affiliated with the Three-Self Patriotic Movement in Yuzhou city were ordered to begin teaching the Bible through the lens of Chinese culture as part of the Chinese Communist Party’s efforts to “sinicize” Christianity.

The magazine, published by the Italian-based Center for Studies on New Religions, reports that in July, the Religious Affairs Bureau gave all local Three-Self preachers in the city located in Henan province a book titled,The Analects Encounter the Bible. ...

Hope you guys are OK, YIA.

I agree that many churches in the US have already gone down this path. We recently met a man who is some sort of New Age Buddhist. My wife immediately began trying to figure out how to best witness to him. She learned that Buddhism has many behavioral aspects that attaempt to mimick how Christians ought to behave toward one another - with love, gentleness, and understanding. She found that many Buddhists look down on Christians for not living up to their standards.

What they lack, of course, is the internal change from faith in Christ & the indwelling of the Spirit. Their standard is an external attempt to reach harmony. Ours is a reflection of being remade into a truer image of God.

While it is fascinating that people over history have sought better behavior thru better manners, it is also fascinating that they missed the root cause...sin. They haven't dealt with that. Fortunately for us, the Lord dealt with our sin for us.

With this order, the Chinese Communist Party does not want to deal with a risen Christ.They are terrified of a risen Christ, as is every secular government of the world.

I would bet there are a lot of churches in the US that would be very happy to preach these kind of sermons, and many probably already have, under the guise of 'all truth comes from God.'
And then there are the constant flow of similar programs from PBS. Just like their 'Frontline' special about abortion--were they going to give numbers about how many were done at Planned Parenthood clinics, the racial breakdown of how many Hispanic, black and white babies were aborted, and how this works within the PP founder Margaret Sanger's clearly stated intention to reduce the black and brown populations in the US. Or did they go into the selling of baby parts from those same clinics?
I doubt it, but if you watched it, let us know.
Then, in terms of the US educational system, I would bet you can find more elementary schools who could quote something from Confucius, more than the ones who could quote Jesus.
