This week we’re going to be talking about the Bible app on your phone. Many of us have smartphones now and have one or more apps through which we can read the Bible on our phones. This is very convenient, and these apps have become quite popular. But what if these apps disappeared? We’re going to consider this in our episode today.

Chinese Government Advances Efforts to Wipe Out Christianity by Removing Bible Apps, Christian WeChat

“The Chinese government is taking further steps to remove religious materials from the hands of Christians as the Communist regime strives to eliminate the faith community.

“Father Francis Liu from the Chinese Christian Fellowship of Righteousness advised that some Christian WeChat accounts, including ‘Gospel League’ and ‘Life Quarterly’ are no longer offered online, International Christian Concern (ICC) reported.

“Users receive the following message when they attempt to gain access:

“‘(We) received report that (this account) violates the “Internet User Public Account Information Services Management Provisions” and its account has been blocked and suspended.’

“Additionally, Bible Apps have been eliminated from China’s App Store and hard copy versions are no longer able to be purchased online. The only way for Christians in China to download a Bible App is by using a VPN.” (Faithwire)
