The Church of Almighty God | The Media Giant BBC Will Surely Be Spurned If It Sticks to Its Own Way

by Yang Xiaonie from China

Recently, the CCP acts very actively on the stage of foreign trade, so, fawning reports appear one after another in some media. Among them, the British authoritative media BBC has a report The Chinese Cult that Kills “Demons,” which is after the CCP’s heart’s desire. However, when those who like the voice of justice roughly look at the fabricated plot, they couldn’t believe that it’s actually published by the BBC. This British broadcasting media which has a history of over ninety years should have had a sharp eye. How can it suddenly not see things clearly? Even the public knows that one can’t draw a final conclusion only after listening to a one-sided statement.

As a Christian of the Church of Almighty God, I have something to say.

[The Church of Almighty God] The BBC Has Actually Become the CCP’s Mouthpiece

As for the magnate of the media all over the world, the BBC fully deserves its title. As for the BBC, its integrity, boldness, and impartiality are rare in the world.

Recently, comments are flying around in the media circle. It is said that the old and mature BBC is just like a mad youngster seeking love and someone must have stolen away the heart of this media tycoon. Then, who is so “charming” that he can not only “steal” away the BBC’s heart but also make it debase itself and do its utmost to please him? What has the BBC done to cause such a stir?

The BBC Has Actually Become the CCP’s Mouthpiece

(from China)

In Mainland China, in order to survive, the media have to act strictly according to the government’s instruction and can’t report the objective facts, so that the true fact is covered. Thus, we try every possible means to read the news on foreign websites (including the BBC) over the wall mainly to learn about the true fact.

Why Has the Famous Media BBC Become the CCP’s Mouthpiece?

Why Has the Famous Media BBC Become the CCP’s Mouthpiece?

by Mo Ran

(from China)

Since the establishment of the BBC, it has received the favorable comment of people from various countries and the respect of other media with its aim of fearing no power, not being driven by profits, respecting human rights, safeguarding justice, and reporting the true fact objectively. However, on August 14, 2014, an article entitled A Report on the Spot: The Chinese Cult that Kills “Demons” on the BBC Chinese website, which was written by Carrie, the BBC China editor, greatly surprised me. I never expected that the BBC would speak for the CCP and conduct propaganda and crack down on religious belief for the CCP. What makes the BBC become the CCP’s propaganda tool and its mouthpiece and spokesman?

Any of the sensible and conscientious Chinese people has seen clearly that “Zhaoyuan Incident in Shandong Province” is the scheme plotted by the evil CCP to crack down on the Church of Almighty God and that its inferior tactic which is full of loopholes has become a laughingstock among millions of netizens. The evil CCP has committed all kinds of conscienceless evil deeds and is rejected and hated by people all over the world. This evil party has afflicted and tormented Chinese people for more than sixty years, and even more it tries every possible way to persecute Almighty God, who is incarnated to carry out the end-time work in China. However, God’s wisdom is based on satan’s schemes, and God has made a group of people in China. Now when God’s gospel is spreading to the West, the evil CCP attempts to use the influence of the western first-class media to defame the Church of Almighty God through the distorted report and hinder the spreading of God’s kingdom gospel. Unexpectedly, the BBC, a famous media with high popularity worldwide, actually beats the drum for the evil CCP, frames and persecutes the underground churches, and acts as its mouthpiece! As everyone knows, the Communist Party has long become utterly notorious in the whole world and has to step off the stage of history. Would the BBC support the evil CCP which is about to collapse even at the cost of being spurned by all people in the world?

Before publishing this report, why didn’t Carrie contact the Church of Almighty God based on professional ethnics of being serious and responsible and investigating the true fact, but blindly believed the one-sided statement of an evil party that has no credibility at all and is spurned by all Chinese people and even the world? Why did she arbitrarily slander the Church of Almighty God? Carrie’s rash action has violated the BBC’s values of being impartial, honest, and accurate and finding out the true fact. People cannot but ask: Is the BBC a media or a ruling party? It is worth thinking that this report was published after Chinese Premier Li Keqiang had visited Britain with “a big gift package” worth 14 billion pounds. It seems no accident.

However, I still want to ask the BBC: Don’t you fear that one day you will feel ashamed to face the public when the truth is brought to light? Do you sell out conscience and abandon the universal values temporarily driven by economic interests? Or do you stand on the side of the evil CCP temporarily under government pressure? Can you still report the truth of the fact according to the principles of impartiality and objectivity and accuracy and stop misleading the whole world?

The BBC Has Lost Its Former Aura of an “Impartial” Media

—a letter to the BBC China editor Carrie

by Chen Zhen from China

Hello, Ms. Carrie. I’m a faithful reader of the BBC Chinese website and also an ordinary Christian of the Church of Almighty God. After I read your article A Report on the Spot: The Chinese Cult that Kills “Demons” (August 14) and watched a short video in which you personally did an interview, The Murder in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province and the Cult (August 15), I felt awfully sorry and disappointed and was unspeakably sorrowful and indignant.

In my heart, the BBC is the most long-standing and most respected media in the world, which has been upholding the values of being true, accurate, fair, impartial, and independent in the last hundred years. From the BBC’s report on “6/4 Incident” of China which shocked the world and its report on Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, I saw that the BBC reporters, at the risk of their lives, broke through the CCP’s blockades, entered into the scene of the news to interview, gained the first-hand materials, and made reports that were objective, impartial, independent, and fact-based. They earned the respect of hundreds of millions of people. I felt that the BBC held fast to justice and safeguarded human rights and dignity and that such a media was worthy of respect. From the BBC’s “editorial values,” I ever saw that “trust is the foundation of the BBC: we are independent, impartial and honest,” and “we seek to establish the truth of what has happened and are committed to achieving due accuracy in all our output.” That made me see the demeanor of the media most respected by the whole world. However, Ms. Carrie’s report on the case in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province and the Church of Almighty God is out of normal character, which is very puzzling.

In the report on the Church of Almighty God, you didn’t investigate independently as usual but directly quoted the report by the CCP’s mouthpiece, CCTV. You firstly agreed that the six murderers of “the Murder in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province” are members of the Church of Almighty God, but you didn’t interview the Church of Almighty God or check out the identities of Zhang Lidong and the others with the Church of Almighty God. You confirmed that Zhang Lidong and the others are members of the Church of Almighty God only according to the CCP’s report. It is void of the media’s objective and impartial attitude, and it is against the BBC’s editorial value that “we are independent and impartial.” Sensible people all know that “the Murder in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province” is the excuse the CCP found to intentionally frame the Church of Almighty God and launch a full-fledged crackdown on the underground churches especially the Church of Almighty God, so as to safeguard its dictatorial rule for fear that its dictatorship might be threatened. That is exactly the same as it suppressed “6/4 Incident” promoted by the patriotic students on the charge of anticipating counter-revolutionary riot that year. Such a scheme the ordinary Chinese people have debunked could actually make the BBC, the British media with a long history, lose its sharp outsight, so that you reported on the basis of the false news created through the CCP’s lies and deceptions and stood on the same ground with the CCP boldly. If you had been in line with the BBC’s “independent” value, you would have personally investigated “the Murder in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province” that is full of holes and exposed by the public; if you had been in line with the BBC’s “impartial” value, you wouldn’t have listened to only one side. You could have known something about the Church of Almighty God, their creed, and the fact of their being persecuted directly through the website of the Church of Almighty God. Then I believe that you would have drawn a correct conclusion very easily: The CCP frames and cruelly persecutes the Church of Almighty God, attempting to exterminate the Christians of the Church of Almighty God; the real Christians of the Church of Almighty God won’t do anything illegal, and in contrary, they are all honest and kind people. If you had interviewed any Christian of the Church of Almighty God, he would have told you responsibly that Zhang Lidong and the others are absolutely not the Christians of the Church of Almighty God; if you had an objective and impartial attitude, you would have surely come to a conclusion which is totally different from this report. However, it’s really a pity! You’ve abandoned the BBC’s values and undoubtedly kept a high degree of uniformity with the CCP, becoming the accomplice of the CCP persecuting the Church of Almighty God and the supporter of this evil party.

Next, you interviewed a man named Wang Jiannan. He said that his sister and mother began to believe in the “cult” twenty years ago. It is reported that on October 1 last year, his sister beat their father to death. Like the murder of Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province, she saw her father as a “demon” who must be destroyed. After killing her father, she handed herself into police and is now in prison. According to its consistent way of doing things, the BBC would have definitely made an in-depth report of this matter and got to the bottom of it. However, it stopped and agreed with Wang’s statement. Just think: It has been over twenty years since Almighty God worked in China and there are millions of followers of Almighty God. If they had acted by “killing demons,” these millions of people would have killed countless people in over twenty years. But why haven’t it caused a panic among people? If that were true, why hasn’t the Chinese government reported it? Did the CCP shield the Church of Almighty God? Even I, such a common person, can spot the flaw. Why can’t Ms Carrie, experienced and knowledgeable, find it out? Never did I expect that the BBC that takes “being honest” as its value could fool the public like this.

Now the whole world is unmasking the CCP and it acknowledges that the CCP is more evil than the Nazi. Don’t you know about it? Many countries in Europe oppose and reject the CCP. As a mainstream media, you should know more clearly than us. Why do you believe the CCP’s report but not the fact of the underground churches’ being persecuted? Why do you stand on the side of the CCP to persecute the underground churches? If the Nazi still exists, will you also stand on its side? Now I suspect the BBC’s values, because your deed has overthrown the universal values acknowledged by the world. I also suspect the media purpose you pursue, because what you do now fits well with the saying among the Chinese people “selling horse meat as beefsteak.” The reputation of the BBC’s being “impartial” is already inconsistent with what you do.

BBC, BBC, what’s wrong with you? What drives you to fall and be unworthy to be trusted like the mouthpiece media of the CCP? Is it true as the hearsay says, “this report serves as a gift in return to the Chinese Premier, who brought a large trade deal worth 14 billion pounds when he paid a visit to British in June”? Is it true that the BBC sells out the media’s dignity in order that British can gain economic benefits from China? Or is the economic situation of the BBC so bad that it would rather discard its dignity? Does the BBC really bow for gaining favors? I can’t help sighing, “The BBC has lost its former aura of an ‘impartial’ media and the heart of its readers and audiences. The future of the BBC is worrying! There is a well-known saying in China, “Water can overturn the boat as well as float it.” May the BBC respect itself!

Eastern Lightning | Exposed! The BBC Ethics Scandal

Exposed!

The BBC Ethics Scandal

News should reflect the true picture of an incident. Thus it is of the utmost importance to report the news with honesty, fairness, and impartiality. How the BBC reports it directly affects how people understand and view the events. If the BBC does not uphold impartiality and fairness it will mislead the public and even defame or slander an innocent party. Unfortunately, this is what the BBC has done.

Upon seeing the May 28, 2014 report condemning the Church of Almighty God and its members as the perpetrators and also the report previously published on August 13, 2014 again reinforcing the implication that the Church of Almighty God is responsible and even trains the members of the Church to instigate such actions from the Zhaoyuan case or in destroying families. However, in the report, there was no investigation other than taking the word of the Communist Party, and the outcome is that the BBC has reported what was told to them by a brutal, inhuman regime in China, that is represented by the CCP, acting as the mouthpiece of a political party that is more devilish than the Nazi Party and which symbols and even membership is banned in many areas of the world because wherever the CCP goes, people will suffer numerous disasters. The BBC must know that. So why would it support the CCP? Does it mean that the BBC now stands for “Better Believe Communism”?

What has happened to the BBC Editorial Guidelines? Where was the independent investigation? Why only show one side of the story? Is there still fairness or openminded-ness?

If the BBC keeps publishing their unsubstantiated stories, then isn’t it an abhorrent doing? If the BBC continues to side with the CCP without objectively checking the facts, doesn’t it show that the BBC lost its senses when it was wooed by the CCP? Perhaps the BBC’s relationship with the CCP can be called “Better Believe Communism & Collect Communist Payoff.” It is an open secret that the CCP buys off and pressures politicians and even reporters to achieve their ends. Surely the BBC knows the history of the CCP’s methods? Is it possible that the BBC has been bought off? What are the implications of this reporting only one side of the event? Does the BBC really want to be a tool of oppression?

The BBC is accountable. Yes, even in the BBC editorial guidelines accountability, fairness and impartiality are stressed, yet in this news piece where can we see the impartial reporting? Where can we see the fairness? We welcome the BBC to publish the links of our church materials and videos, so the BBC audience can have an impartial chance to discover the truth for themselves.

The mission of the Church of Almighty God is to spread the truths that the returned Christ expressed in the end time for the whole mankind. God’s words in the end time, The Word Appears in the Flesh, teaches us how to live out the likeness of a real man and satisfy God’s will. It is the greatest honor for us to share God’s word with others. It’s common knowledge that the CCP is the most evil power on earth, which is the enemy of God, and it wants to prevent God’s word from spreading to the entire mankind. That is why it persecutes and frames and hinders the Church of Almighty God. This man in the Zhaoyuan event is most definitely not a member of our Church. From his own words it is obvious he doesn’t believe in Almighty God. No one in the Church recognizes him. So what would his actions have to do with the Church of Almighty God?

The BBC has made a grossly incorrect report and we demand it to be corrected and your response published on the BBC webpage. Millions of Church members are waiting.

The BBC Has Lost Its Former Aura of an “Impartial” Media

For many years, in the hearts of the people of all countries, the BBC, for taking not fearing power, upholding justice, reporting the truth of the fact objectively, respecting religious belief, and so on, as its aim, is judged one of the media most respected worldwide. But on August 14, 2014, a report in the BBC Chinese website greatly disappoints many net friends who deeply trust the BBC. Particularly, some parts in this article that are not objective make the sensible net friends begin to red light the trust towards the BBC.

As the Christians of the Church of Almighty God, we are shocked by this report of the BBC even more greatly. Next let’s look at the problems in this report together.

The Church of Almighty God | Eying the Evil Party Through the CCP’s Dictatorship

Chang Kai

    Although the May 28 Zhaoyuan incident has passed, in retrospect, we once again see clearly the CCP’s evil substance from it. It’s exactly the biggest evil party and evil cult in the world!

    It’s well-known that China is an atheistic country. The CCP never acknowledges the existence of God or allows the coming of the true God, because the substance of the CCP’s nature is resisting and rebelling against God and being hostile to God. It brands all the Christianities including the Church of Almighty God as cults and brands the Bible as the cult’s book. It keeps instilling into people through the brainwashing way of education and media: Man evolved from the ape and wasn’t created by God. It even more puts forward a lot of heresies and fallacies, such as, “Heaven and earth isn’t greater than the Party’s grace,” “The Communist Party is Chinese people’s breadgiver,” “Knowledge can change one’s destiny,” “Man’s destiny is in his own hand,” “Let those who comply with me prosper and those who don’t perish,” “Everyone for himself, and the devil takes the hindmost,” and so on. In such a way, it lulls and erodes people’s thoughts and corrodes their spirit, so that they gradually accept its blinding and poisoning. For example, after the CCP came into power in 1949, Mao Zedong frenziedly “deified” himself by all kinds of means and became the people’s “messiah” as he wished, making all the people worship him crazily…. While wantonly preaching atheism, the CCP shamelessly shapes itself as “god” for people to worship and admire. All this is enough to reveal its wild ambition: turning China into a region without God, controlling the Chinese people under its power, and enslaving and trampling them forever. This fully proves that the CCP is an evil party and an evil cult through and through!

    When it comes to the evil cult, we certainly should know the orthodoxy first. We all know that the orthodoxy, namely, the true way, comes from the true God. Only the word God expresses is the truth and the truth is the reality of all positive things. When people act according to God’s word, there will be no barrier, hatred, jealousy, or strife among them, and they will treat each other fairly and love each other. It can be seen that the true way brings people light and leads them onto the right way of human life. In the end-time work, God expresses the truth of several millions of words for the purpose that people can be saved, pursue the truth, pursue to know God, and pursue to have their disposition transformed and that in the end they can live out the likeness of a real man. In other words, no one has or possesses the truth and even less has the power to overcome and break free from sin, so only with the help of the truth God expresses can one gradually break away from sin, get transformed in his disposition, live out the likeness of a real man, and in the end be saved by God. Obviously, what Almighty God brings to mankind is the right way of human life and also the bright pathway for people to be saved.

    On the contrary, the education of the evil party and the evil cult causes people to be more and more crooked and crafty, greedy, deceptive, malicious, selfish and base, arrogant and self-conceited, and self-right and self-important, making them become more and more darkened and fallen in their heart. We can have a complete discernment of this point according to all that the CCP evil party has brought to the people: During the over 60 years since the CCP was in power, it brings to the Chinese people darkness, emptiness, sufferings, and death. In the early years of the new nation, during the Agrarian Movement, millions of landlords lost their lives only in two years. During the Counter-Revolutionary Movement in the same period, another millions of people were killed. During the “Four Clean-ups” in the latter period, nearly 100,000 people met with violent deaths. The Great Leap Forward caused innumerous people to be starved to death in the wilds…. In modern times, during the June Fourth Incident in 1989, tens of thousands of innocent students who yearned for righteousness and demanded for democracy and freedom were crushed under the CCP’s tanks or shot by its machine guns. In a flash, blood flowed like a river on the Tiananmen Square…. I believe all of us still clearly remember other bloody big incidents such as the suppression of Falun Gong, the suppression of Tibetan independence, the action of stabilizing Xinjiang, and so on. In order to stabilize its dictatorship, the CCP killed countless people. Isn’t it an absolute evil cult? Moreover, through over 60 years of the CCP’s ideological education, today’s Chinese people have all become its successors. They are morally bankrupt and devoid of humanity and prioritize profit above all else. They only want to gain profits for themselves but don’t care about others’ life or death and can do anything against the conscience for profit. In recent years, China becomes a big power that counterfeits things. Ranging from unsafe food to jerry-built projects, fake and shoddy things emerge endlessly: the leaning building, the collapsing bridge, fake milk powder, fake egg, waste oil…. The Chinese’s thoughts are distorted and their hearts become abnormal, and they only struggle for “fame” and “profit.” They live like a walking corpse, not knowing what they live and die for but only struggling for profit all their life.

    The bloody facts tell people that the CCP is the root and origin of all evil and is the axis of the evil of the whole world! Because of this, it regards God and the truth as its irreconcilable enemies. In the over 20 years when Almighty God works, it always frenziedly fabricates rumors against, condemns, and slanders Almighty God and the Church of Almighty God, and crazily arrests and persecutes God’s chosen people. As a result, countless God’s chosen people are arrested and cruelly tortured and imprisoned in labor camps; more people cannot go back to their own home and become destitute and homeless in order to escape the CCP’s arrest…. It can be seen that the CCP is the embodiment of satan!

    Two thousand years ago, during the time the Lord Jesus did the work, the ruling party at that time hunted the Lord Jesus and the disciples who followed him by every possible means. Today, repeating the old tactics, the CCP wildly hunts and persecutes Almighty God and the chosen people who follow him. The facts are enough to prove that satan has been hostile to God from beginning to end. However, no matter how rampant and aggressive it is and no matter how evil and reactionary it is, God’s work is never hindered by any hostile force. It was so in the beginning and it is the same today. Nowadays, God has accomplished his end-time work in China, satan’s lair. His gospel has spread to every corner in Mainland China, so that tens of thousands of Chinese people have broken away from the CCP’s dark ruling and returned to Almighty God’s family one after another and are accepting God’s end-time salvation and perfection.

    “Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes mad.” The CCP’s rampancy and aggression predict the coming of its end. Now, the biggest evil party in the world is waiting for God’s final punishment for it! Just as Almighty God says, “Today God has again come to the world to do his work. The first place he does his work in is the aggregate of dictatorial rulers—China—the strong bastion of atheism. With his wisdom and by his power, he has conquered a group of people. During this period, he is hunted by China’s ruling party in every possible way and undergoes all kinds of sufferings, having no place to lay his head and having no place to stay. In spite of this, he is still doing the work he wants to do: speaking and uttering his voice and spreading the gospel. God’s almightiness cannot be fathomed by anyone. In China, a nation which regards God as its enemy, God has never stopped his work but instead has gained more people to accept his work and word, because God saves every one of mankind to the utmost. We all believe that the thing God will accomplish cannot be hindered by any nation or any force, and that those who obstruct God’s work, resist God’s word, and disturb and damage God’s plan will eventually be punished by God. If a man resists God’s work, God will cast this man into hell; if a nation resists God’s work, God will destroy this nation; if a race rises up to oppose God’s work, God will make this race disappear from the earth and no longer exist.” (from The Word Appears in the Flesh)
