The exclusionary policies of the Chinese government.
As the Chinese Communist Party imposes restrictions on religious content in Hong Kong, statistics show that the city's Christian community will soon face a shortage of Bibles.
Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy ended two years ago with the passing of the National Security Law. The city is then governed by the policies of the Chinese Communist government.
According to the US-based international Christian organization Studium Biblicum Franciscanum, a biblical research institute affiliated with Franciscan Catholics, its data analysis found that printing Bibles without government approval could lead to problems for the city's Christian authorities. For this reason, they can hardly find non-governmental publishing and printing centers.
The monitoring group ChinaAid quoted Franciscan Raymond Mary Yong, a member of the SBF, as saying: "The institution has not yet been able to find a suitable printing house for the Chinese Bibles, and therefore has practically stopped reprinting them."
He added: Currently, all the Chinese Bibles of the association have been sold to bookstores, and if the printing problem is not solved in the near future, we will face a shortage.
The Chinese government recently announced that Christians must first register and receive approval from the government to receive and send religious content. This process is part of the government's macro policy in the direction of assimilation of non-Chinese religions and groups.
