Re: Who was cursing Jesus and who was adoring the Lord Jesus without the holy spirit

Those saying Jesus be cursed could be some form of adoptionists who see the prophet Jesus as bearing the Spirit onlym but not a prexistent man, so they adhere to the Christ Spirit but the man himself is not Divine.

Re: In China the Government is Dictating Scripture

AFAIK most scholars don’t assign a relatively large role to the interpolation of New Testament texts (and less to deletion/‘non-interpolation’), especially when there is no manuscript that provides evidence of it, implicitly validating something like the OP’s complaint.
