Yesterday I found out something interesting on Mandarin characters


Puritan Board Freshman
I was talking with someone who spent 26 years in China. I was asking her about some of her Chinese artwork and the Mandarin language came up. I have never heard this before, but she explained to me how some words using the old Mandarin characters (they have since simplified them and changed them to remove the meaning) have biblical references. For instance, "righteous" is expressed by lamb and me, or lamb over me, "covet' is a woman and two trees, boat combines vessel, person and the number 8.

I was awe struck at how even within their language they were pointed to the truth of scripture, yet their government tries to remove everything that points to the one, true God and has made man their gods.
