Chinese government has always been very sensitive about all the religious matters especially after Xinjiang conflict started. And to their credit, they are coping quite fine with the task: vast majority of population still remains religion-free, saying that the only thing they believe in is money. I don't think this internet ban on Bibles is that serious since you can still buy a physical book in store, it just makes it a lot easier to control the authenticity of the content.

With all the news coming out of China, like Xi being able to rule without term limits, this is one that didn't surprised me.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqeg8vLlx7c

Do you agree with this? Should the state regulate religion as strictly as China does? For example, they screen people before allowing them to go an the haj to Mecca.

I believe that with today's Internet it is impossible to stop the flow of ideas.

Hence it should be impossible to stop the transfer of text versions of books, including the Bible.

Therefore this thread is nonsense.

This is one of the reason why China can't take over from the USA as the world power, they have many anti human right policies

I think it is because they are implementing new laws that are trying to help their infrastructure. I refer here to the ban on being buried. People might get the feeling to have the right to be buried due to religious effects. But I am no expert on China or anything, this is just another average citizen of the world that watches occasionally the news on TV

China didn't ban the bible

China only banned "downloading unauthorized versions" of the bible

You can still buy the book at any book store... and presumable download authorized versions

the record needs to be set straight because we have different versions of the story 'Bible downloads banned in China' and 'China only banned "downloading unauthorized versions" of the bible.
So I am confused at the moment of the actual narrative .
However, a big economy like China would not want the world to perceive them as an country that has little or no regard for alternate religion,specifically the christian bible.

A communist country banning parts of religions? Color me surprised, hehe.

These countries do this because they know that without religion, they're able to idolize their leaders -- instead of people believing in a god, they think that Mao is a god (or something along these lines in the country that you're talking about)
Religion provides people with a path of resistance against the government, and it allows people to have a set of ideas that may be different than the country in. If you remove this, it allows people to be converted into your culture easier.

China didn't ban the bible

What's the issue with the unauthorized version, is it not edited or something along those lines to fit the narrative of the Chinese government? (This is an actual question, I actually don't know)

Though the OP should have said this in the start......

There is only one country in the world which has successfully managed to counter religious extremism, and that is China. They are doing the right thing. The preference should be given to native religions such as Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism. Foreign religions such as Islam and Christianity should not be allowed to convert people in China.
Well They are not recruiting or what so ever. what happen to the other people whos not Chinese only but different race they cant actually read bible online? much better is to limit what they can get access on the words on bible not remove it.  Its a Religions talk so i wish theres an altenative way that they can think for other people who's in china.

I find this thing funny, why? because China is the largest known bible producer in the whole world.  They cannot turn down something that will give them money.

China's beliefs and traditions are against the bible. That is the reason why their government had banned this holy book in their country so that Christianity could not interfere them on their laws and lifestyle.

You don't know why the Bible is off the shelf. The key is that the number of Christian believers has exceeded the number of Communists. The government is scared!
Huge Christians threatened their rule!

Earlier this year a top man of God in African was almost forced to resign because Government didnt like the revelations made about the government by the particular man of God. Why government meddle with religious stuff is that the people involved cannot stand and say no. after all there should be right to religious belief. From history worst things has happened to bible yet it is still in circulation so am not worried. God has a way of sorting His own things out. No country should emulate such thing.

Yes, this may happen in every country. It is a matter of life and death to them. The bible wasn't destroying the country, it just do warn them against the negative effects of their works, ruling, and behavior. There is no reason to ban the bible.

1) The bible is not "off the shelf", it is still available in book stores

2) Around 2% of the Chinese population is Christian.  Christians do not exceed communists

3) Nobody is scared of them, lmao

4) 2% of the population believing in fairy tales is not a threat to any ruler
