As Christianity rises, China is preparing to flood its people with false … – Washington Times

America is losing its work ethic
Voters need to know who will serve the next president
Shame on Trump for not debating
OPINION:
Let’s look at a few facts.
The United States is rich in fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas. Under former President Donald Trump, the U.S. boosted its energy production.
Under President Biden, the U.S. became more dependent on foreign sources of energy, triggering ruinous inflation.
Democrats want to replace all fossil fuels by 2050 with green energy such as wind and solar power, many of whose components are made in China.
A recent Environmental Protection Agency directive limiting emissions will effectively force U.S. manufacturers to switch over to electric cars and trucks within seven years.
Democratic-run California now has a law forbidding dealers from selling new vehicles with internal combustion engines after 2035. When it was last under full Democratic control in 2021, Virginia enacted a similar law.
Replacing tens of millions of gasoline-powered vehicles with electric ones will require tens of millions of batteries and a far more powerful electric grid, now powered by fossil fuels. While China builds new coal-fired power plants every day, the Biden administration is closing as many coal and natural gas plants as fast as it can.
Windmills and solar panels cannot possibly make up even a fraction of the energy needed. See where this is going?
Batteries require lithium and cobalt. China controls nearly one-third of the global supply chain for lithium ion batteries. And they control mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has more than 70% of the world’s cobalt and which use child laborers under horrendous conditions.
On a recent visit to China, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen bowed ostentatiously before Vice Premier He Lifeng several times without any reciprocation from her counterpart. Earlier, Secretary of State Antony Blinken made a pitch to President Xi Jinping to reduce China’s greenhouse gases, a suggestion Mr. Xi swatted away like a fly.
House investigators have uncovered business deals worth millions of dollars between Biden family members and Chinese-controlled companies.
If none of this bothers you, how about China’s 10-year plan to rewrite the Bible, the Quran and other religious texts to conform to communist dogma?
That’s right. “Scholars” in China are refashioning the Old and New Testaments into communist-friendly versions that will reflect the theology of Mao Zedong and Mr. Xi rather than the Holy Spirit of God, under whose hand the Bible was written by 44 authors over a period of 1,500 years.
As Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin wrote on FoxNews.com, a Chinese university textbook relates the account in John’s Gospel when Jesus saves an adulterous woman from stoning by a mob.
In the real version, Jesus says, “He who is without sin cast the first stone” and he tells the woman to “go and sin no more.”
In the new, improved version, Jesus stones her to death himself.
“Across Henan province, local [Chinese Communist Party] officials forced Protestant churches to replace the Ten Commandments with Xi Jinping quotes,” Mr. Gallagher wrote.
China is preparing to flood its people with false scriptures.
It wouldn’t be the first time. Between 1966 and 1971, more than 1 billion copies of Mao’s “Little Red Book of Communism” were printed, according to the Cambridge University Press.
Wielded by fanatical Red Guards, the book fueled the murder of millions of people in China during the Cultural Revolution.
Today, even with periodic crackdowns and murders of church leaders, Christianity continues to grow.
China’s estimated 100 million Christians seem to be getting under the thin skin of Mr. Xi, as are any faiths that stand in the way of his communist agenda.
Mr. Xi’s regime is openly committing genocide against its Uyghur Muslim minority. And U.N. human rights experts report credible evidence that organs are being harvested from “Falun Gong practitioners, Uyghurs, Tibetans, Muslims and Christians.”
This past week, the Western press, which seems indifferent to the growing horrors in China, went nuts over the death of Irish singer Sinead O’Connor at age 56 of unknown causes.
The songstress had been a media darling ever since she ripped up her mother’s copy of a photo of Pope John Paul II on “Saturday Night Live” in 1992. She had said she was a devout Catholic just following her conscience.
Those who viewed her all along as a fake Catholic seemed to be validated when she abandoned the faith completely and converted to Islam in 2018.
Let’s connect the dots.
The Biden administration, up to its ears in Chinese graft, is kowtowing to China. The media, which much prefer celebrating church scandalizers to exposing communist atrocities, have shut their eyes.
The United States and the rest of the Western world are being frogmarched by earth-worshiping climate change extremists toward total energy dependence on a ruthless communist regime that steals U.S. technology, launches cyberattacks, persecutes people of faith and bribes American officials.
The Bidens have yet to pay any penalty over blatant influence peddling in China or Ukraine.
Like the late Ms. O’Connor, President Biden is fond of claiming to be a devout Catholic. He does so while pushing abortion on demand, embracing the LGBTQ “pride” religion, obliterating the southern U.S. border and deliberately inflaming racial animus. This all delights the Communists in Beijing.
So, where do all these dots lead? There are two words that begin with the letter T that should not be used lightly. Traitor is one, and treason is the other.
They are not in the least incongruent.
