‘Read the Bible’ now available in Mandarin Chinese


An article I wrote, titled Read the Bible has been translated into Mandarin Chinese.  In Mandarin it begins with:





“圣经都是神所默示的(或作:凡神所默示的圣经),於教训、督责、使人归正、教导人学义都是有益的,叫属神的人得以完全,预备行各样的善事。”(提摩太后书3:16-17 )。




It is fantastic that those associated with the Continuing Church of God are making more and more COG literature available in more languages.

In English, the article begins with:

When physically hungry and tempted by Satan, Jesus quoted the book of Deuteronomy,

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).

His other responses to Satan also relied on an application and quoting of scripture (Matthew 4:7,10) instead of human reasoning (or conflicting traditions of men).

Why were the Holy Scriptures given to us?

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (II Timothy 3:16-17).

Thus the Bible itself states that it is the source of doctrine so that God’s followers can be complete and do what God wants.

It is necessary to read the Bible, because,

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires they have itching ears, they will heap up to themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth and, and be turned aside to fables” (II Timothy 4:3-4).

All should read and study the Bible.
