Chinese Communists rename “Moses on the Plain” movie
A Chinese movie, originally called “Moses on the Plain” was abruptly changed to “Fire on the Plain,” reports International Christian Concern.
On September 20, when director Zhang Ji appeared on the red carpet of the Beijing International Film Festival’s opening ceremony, he said, “In this movie, we use a lot of fire as an element. I hope it can bring everyone brightness and strength.”
According to Radio Free Asia, Father Francis Liu from Chinese Christian Fellowship of Righteousness believes that the real motive behind the name change is due to Moses being a Biblical character. Beijing is seeking to remove all Christian-related terms from the public sphere.
The Chinese Communists are even more disturbed by the name of Jesus. The description found in Acts 4:18 could just as well describe their hostility to the church today. “Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.”
