Baptists/Bibles published in China

Question
Should a person buy a Bible published in China if they do not know the pay/working conditions of the employees? Should we trust that a publishing company that published Bibles would be diligently ethical? Thank you.

Answer
Hi Ray,

Thanks for this great question.  This is not one that is clear in scripture... it will be up to your convictions and understanding.  My thought is that if they actually do publish a trustworthy version of scriptures from China, then anything I can do to help keep these Chinese people exposed to the word... I will do.  I just cant imagine that they actually publish the Bible in China because it is illegal to possess one under the communist leadership.  Communist China has so many problems... my boycotting scriptures would not help them.

I hope that this helps you.

In Christ

Expertise

I believe that every word of the Bible is God-Breathed. This blessed book is the foundation of truth for faith and practice. If you ask this volunteer a question you will receive an answer from the Bible that is based upon a litteral, normal interpretation, taking into account the grammar and culture of the time.

Experience

I have been in the ministry almost 20 years. During this time, the Lord has used me as Senior Pastor, counsellor, youth pastor and generally in the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry.
