China cracks down on Christian literature before Olympics

ICC Note:

As we get nearer to the Olympics China is cracking down and seizing Christian literature, including Bibles.


05/09/08 China (MNN) ― In preparation for the Olympics, China is cracking down on their security. Included in this, Dale Randolph of World Bible Translation Center says, “Some people have been arrested, Bible’s have been confiscated, and so we’re trying to quietly replace some of those Bibles.”

This confiscation of Bibles has created a critical need for more of God’s Word in a country where house churches already have to share them.

WBTC does distribution all year round, but with the recent situation, they’re trying to ramp up the process. Randolph says they are “like the turtle Bible distribution in China. It’s slow, consistent. At maybe about a thousand a week, we will print, distribute, and put in the hands mainly of people who do not have a Bible.” [Go to Full Story]
