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

by Su Ming

(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)

The Evil Party Acts Against Heaven and Commits Monstrous Crimes

by Xin Ming

    The better part of a month has passed since the brutal “May 28” murder happened in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province. During that period, the public didn’t see the report about the case being brought into the independent judicial procedure and under investigation. Instead, they saw an “unexpected” tendency: The next morning after the murder happened, Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau publicized this case on Sina Microblog, obviously trying to evade the issue. After keeping “silent” for two days, the Bureau suddenly proclaimed that this case had been solved and the six men and women involved were all alleged as “cultists.” Immediately after that, the “Focus Interview” of CCTV reported the case on June 1, which was directed at the Church of Almighty God. Without going through the due judicial procedure, a brutal criminal homicide case ended up with the result that “the police have carried out the special action of cracking down on the cult, and the Ministry of Public Security even more states flatly that cult crimes must be cracked down cruelly,” and it was directly put forward by CCTV. The sensible ones can easily know that there must be something mysterious in it!

    ⅠCCTV’s Habitual Practice: Trample the Judiciary and Fool the Common People

    In fact, many meticulous people have already found a lot of flaws and inconsistencies in the case information publicized by the Zhaoyuan police and the official media. The voices of doubt rise one after another. Here the unnecessary details won’t be given. I only want to stress one point that there is no judicial expertise or legal basis in all the so-called “evidences” mentioned by CCTV in the interviews, yet the CCP tries to replace the due judicial procedure with these untenable interviews, which is openly trampling the judiciary and fooling the common people. To be frank, whether viewing from the jurisdiction independence or the CCP’s substance of habitually using the media to tell lies, we needn’t take the statement of the CCP media seriously!

    Judging from the video material from the witness, the suspect Zhang Lidong’s action of hitting the victim’s head violently with a steel mop shaft, which caused her to die on the spot, is willful killing, and this is a typical criminal case. According to the due judicial procedure, collecting and gaining the evidences is a very careful work, and the evidences must be verified before acting as the base of a verdict. All these should be done by public security organs, people’s procuratorates, and people’s courts, and they have nothing to do with the media. That is to say, as a medium or an administrative agency, CCTV simply has no qualification to get involved in the work of taking and verifying the evidences, and the news it reports can’t act as the evidences to judge this case.

    For example, in the “Focus Interview” broadcast on June 1, there was a scene of the journalist visiting Zhang Lidong’s house. In the scene, there wasn’t anyone from public security organs, people’s procuratorates, or people’s courts. Then, was the interview taken before the prosecutors entered the room and searched the evidences or after they did so? If it was taken before the prosecutors entered the room, wasn’t it easy for CCTV to damage the evidences and disturb judicial investigation by entering the suspect’s house without permission? If it was taken after the prosecutors entered the room, shouldn’t the “material evidence” like the so-called book concerning the Church of Almighty God have already been taken away by the prosecutors? How could it be left there? Was it used as a prop specially for the CCTV’s interview? In any case, even if this book was indeed found in Zhang’s house, it needed to be verified by the prosecutors that it did belong to Zhang Lidong and others before the book could be taken as a material evidence. However, CCTV induced the audiences to believe that Zhang Lidong is a believer in the Church of Almighty God with a book a journalist took in Zhang’s house without any witness of a third party on the spot. Isn’t the performance too poor? It belittles the audiences’ intelligence seriously. Similarly, all other so-called “evidences” in the “Focus Interview” lack the witness of a third party, such as the characters “murder,” “kill with maltreatment,” “kill beasts,” etc. found in Zhang’s house, the fragment of the CCTV’s interview with Zhang Lidong, or the short message an audience member sent to the journalist.

    In addition, it was unbelievable that when the CCTV journalist opened the book in Zhang’s house, he said repeatedly, “What it says is the doctrine of the cult, Almighty God.” Then, why didn’t he take such a good opportunity to read the doctrine in it? Even one or two sentences could make the audiences have discernment immediately. However, he “missed” the chance. Obviously, his evasiveness was intentional. In fact, the CCP knows at bottom that God’s word is the truth with authority, and once God’s word is read, its lies will fall off of themselves.

    It is known to all that in order to guarantee the social fairness and justice to the greatest extent, judiciary and administration in western democratic societies are completely independent yet mutually restricted. Under the CCP’s dictatorship, it can be seen everywhere that “power is greater than law” and that “the Party is above everything,” and the national laws exist only in name. More sadly, the CCP consistently rules the country with lies, deception, and violent suppression, so most of the common people are used to taking the voice uttered by the propaganda weapons of the Party and the government as the only judging standard. It is no wonder that some people naively take the “evidences” mentioned in the “Focus Interview” as facts and accept them.

    Ⅱ The CCP’s Habitual Tactic: Induce Public Opinion and Kill by Framing

    The CCP’s sinisterness and viciousness lie in that before each suppressing massacre, it uses the media to fabricate lies and induce public opinion and thus paves the way for the later suppressing massacre. Under the CCP’s rule, the media always pursue to safeguard the evil party’s absolute rule, and they even confound black and white and play the trick of a thief crying “Stop thief.” There are countless examples of killing by framing, and the media themselves are the greatest creator of lies.

    For example, the “June 4” Movement­­ in 1989 was actually a peaceful petition of combating corruption for public integrity and advocating democracy and freedom spontaneously organized by college students in Beijing, but the evil CCP feared that the lasting student movement might turn into a political disturbance, which could shake its power. In order to suppress the students admittedly, it had some soldiers disguise themselves as students to overturn the military vehicles and commit killings, and condemned the democratic movement as an “anti-revolutionary riot” by making use of CCTV to whip up public opinion. In the small hours of June 4th, the army carried out a large-scale bloody suppression on the defenseless masses in Tiananmen Square and near the Changan Street. According to the material the White House received later, that night more than 8,000 people died from being shot by the army or run over by tanks!

    The “Tiananmen Square Self-immolation Incident” in 2001 ran in the same groove. The CCP got several people to create an incident of Falun Gong practitioners’ self-immolation in Tiananmen Square, which was full of flaws. Someone who is meticulous even found in the live recording that a person with a camcorder package on his shoulder leisurely moved among the policemen who were busy putting out the fire. Moreover, that day CCTV acted contrarily to the way it usually behaved, reporting the incident in two hours. Then, with that excuse, the CCP suppressed, persecuted, and slaughtered Falun Gong practitioners….

    It is the same with the CCP’s means in treating Tibet. In order to rule Tibet for long, the CCP tries every possible way to destroy the traditional Tibetan culture and religion. It incurs Tibetans’ great indignation, and the protests increase. In order to eradicate its worry thoroughly and suppress Tibet with violence, the CCP instigated some ruffians to mix with the protesters to specially burn, kill, and rob. Then, it moved the army to slaughter Tibetans admittedly with the excuse of “suppressing the Tibet riot.”

    The CCP cooks up the Zhaoyuan case in the same way. Now, Almighty God has already made a group of overcomers in Mainland China, and the kingdom gospel is spreading overseas rapidly. The major western newspapers and websites have begun to publish Almighty God’s word one piece after another. At the same time, the testimony articles and videos concerning the Christians in the Church of Almighty God who have been cruelly persecuted by the CCP are widespread on the Internet. The CCP fears that it will be crusaded against and forsaken by people of various circles in the world after its evildoings are exposed. Thus, it can’t contain itself and again frames the Church of Almighty God. It tries to condemn and frame first and then suppress with violence, thus terminating God’s work thoroughly and fighting God to the death. It fully reveals that it is a group of devils that runs counter to right principles and kills bloodthirstily. Regrettably, it has miscalculated, because God’s words say, “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.” We believe that God’s words will surely be accomplished. The CCP, this evil party, acts against Heaven and commits monstrous crimes. Its last day is near, and it will finally receive God’s righteous judgment and punishment. Let’s wait and see!

The Real One Who Created Zhaoyuan Murder Is the CCP

by Shi Zai

(from South Korea)

    The “May 28” Zhaoyuan Murder aroused strong indignation of the people in Mainland China and became the focus of attention. Zhaoyuan authority didn’t publicize the incident until three days after it happened, alleging that the suspect Zhang Lidong was a member of the Church of Almighty God. However, the public doubted about it and criticized that the CCP officials were distorting the fact and intentionally shielding the murderers. Though it has been weeks since the incident happened, the murderers who created the incident still go unpunished. Who is the real prime criminal? Is it truly the Church of Almighty God the CCP’s official media alleged?

    From the authenticity and credibility of the media, the mouthpiece of the CCP, in reporting incidents all the time, people can’t help but doubt the CCP’s shifting the blame of the murder to the Church of Almighty God. In the whole “May 28” murder, we haven’t seen the position of the CCP authorities in handling the suspect. When the authorities couldn’t give the public an explanation, it threw out a lie that could silence the doubting public. Immediately after that, it kept practicing network supervision and control, deleting all remarks against the authorities. The related online postings with hundreds of thousands of or even millions of hits are forcibly deleted by the CCP authority, and all major forums of the websites in Mainland China are forbidden to talk about it. Then, the CCP’s media played it up by saying that the CCP would attack, condemn, and suppress the Church of Almighty God which has nothing to do with the case in the name of cracking down on the cult. The CCP didn’t make known to the public how the suspect was judged according to the state law, but instead it openly carried out a severe crackdown and suppression on the Church of Almighty God. From the CCP’s perfunctory attitude toward the murder, the CCP doesn’t intend to return justice to the victim, but instead it directs the spearhead at the Church of Almighty God through this incident, and then intentionally guides the people in Mainland China to denounce the Church of Almighty God. Only at this moment do we see clearly the truth behind the whole incident, and the sinister intention of the CCP is also thoroughly exposed. Just as the Bible says, “There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.” (Luke 12: 2-3) Next, let’s dissect who the real prime criminal of Zhaoyuan case is.

    In the “May 28” murder, what the CCP cracked down on was not the real criminals, but it painstakingly arranged a crackdown action with ulterior motives, which was directed at the Church of Almighty God. The crime scene is very close to Zhaoyuan Municipal Public Security Bureau. When the murderers Zhang Lidong and the others did violence to the victim Wu, the witness called the police in time. If the policemen arrived on the scene in four minutes as what they said, then there would be time for the victim to be rescued. However, when the policemen arrived, the victim Wu was already dead. So, judging from the time when the policemen arrived, the suspicion of stalling for time can’t be excluded. Moreover, viewing from its attitude toward the case after that, the CCP intentionally shielded the criminals and purposely concealed the details of the case, and even changed the nature of the case, putting the blame on the Church of Almighty God. It’s not hard to see that the CCP arranged and planned it purposely and deliberately. But by whatever means the CCP does things, its sinister intention will be exposed in the end.

    In the Zhaoyuan incident, the CCP is dead against the Church of Almighty God even at the cost of the life of an innocent ordinary person, and it is nothing surprising. In the history of the CCP, the CCP’s means of framing at any cost is a matter known to all. It always plays the trick of a thief crying “Stop thief.” It did so in the “June Fourth” Students’ Strike, in the “Tibetan Incident,” and even more in the “Xinjiang Incident of Violence” and the “Tiananmen Incident.” We must see clearly this habitual means of the CCP. As long as one dissects every incident created by the CCP, he will discover its sinister intention. The CCP has persecuted the Church of Almighty God for over twenty years, and there have been nearly twenty thousand cases of the Christians in the Church of Almighty God being cruelly persecuted by the CCP. In these cases, some are cruelly persecuted to death or disability by the CCP, some are watched by the CCP for a long time and are deprived of freedom, and even more some are persecuted by the CCP so that they become homeless.

    Then why does the CCP frenziedly suppress and persecute the Church of Almighty God? Here we have to mention the origin of the CCP. In the beginning of The Manifesto of the Communist Party, it says, “A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of communism.” Marx, the founder of the Communist Party, was a believer in Satanism. He claimed that the Communist Party was an evil spirit. This evil spirit once wandered in Europe and started the evil theory of Communism, bringing disasters to many countries in Europe and Asia, and it expressed atheism that cruelly corrupted mankind to the apex of evil. The CCP is the worshiper and follower of Marxism, and it advocates winning power by violence and is lawless. So it simply doesn’t care about humanity, and has no morality at all. The CCP’s history is a history of constant slaughters, and such examples are too numerous to record, which is decided by its evil and reactionary substance. Therefore, when God is incarnated in the end time and comes to the nest of the great red dragon—China, the strong bastion of atheism, in order to hinder God’s chosen people from coming before God and control people under its power and continue its dictatorial rule, China’s ruling party, the CCP, frenziedly resists and cruelly persecutes the Church of Almighty God. The CCP held many emergency meetings to discuss how to abolish the Church of Almighty God, made and issued many secret documents, and carried out various base and diabolic schemes and plots, bringing great hindrance to Almighty God’s work and the church work.

    But no matter how severe the CCP’s persecution is, followers of Almighty God are increasing constantly. There are members of the Church of Almighty God everywhere in China, and the gospel of Almighty God has been spread to numerous households and made known to every family and everyone. Now overseas, Christians in all countries who come to the Church of Almighty God to seek the truth increase with each passing day. Almighty God’s end-time gospel is being spread to the whole world with lightning speed. If the rumors fabricated by the CCP are true, the Christians in the Church of Almighty God should be fewer and fewer. How can it be so flourishing? The facts are sufficient to prove this: All that from God will thrive, and all that from satan will perish. This is because Almighty God is the Lord who created the heavens and the earth and all things, and is precisely the returned Lord Jesus in the prophecy of the Bible. The CCP attempts to make mischief and fabricate a charge against the Church of Almighty God through this criminal case, so that it can frenziedly persecute and condemn the true God and hinder God’s gospel work in Mainland China. The CCP’s sinister intention is so malicious!

    Hence, the real prime criminal who created the “May 28” Zhaoyuan murder is the CCP. Incidents of violence created by the CCP are on show in Mainland China every day. What the CCP brings to the people is violence and slaughter, is lies and deception, is that “those who obey survive and those who disobey perish,” and is terror and despair. The Zhaoyuan murder is just a tip of the iceberg in the CCP’s history of crimes. But it attempts to seize the opportunity to defame the Church of Almighty God and resist the true God, which means that it is bringing destruction upon itself, because God’s righteous disposition doesn’t tolerate the offense of anyone! Those who resist the true God will surely incur the wrath of Heaven!

Eastern Lightning | The Zhaoyuan Murder Is a Trick of a Thief Crying “Stop Thief,” with a Hidden Evil Intention and Another Plot

The Zhaoyuan Murder Is a Trick of a Thief Crying “Stop Thief,” with a Hidden Evil Intention and Another Plot

by Mi Li

    On the night of May 28, a netizen broke the news: Around 9 o’clock that night, at a McDonald’s in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province, Zhang and other five people asked the victim Wu, who was also dining there, for her phone number but failed, so they beat her to death. As soon as the news was posted, it attracted many netizens’ attention. People all denounced and scolded the suspects’ evil deeds and urged the police to return justice to the victim.

    Several days later, the government claimed that the suspects Zhang Lidong and five others were all members of the cult “Almighty God.” Shandong Provincial Public Security Bureau decided that from June to August this year, the public security organs of the whole province should be organized to carry out the special action of cracking down on cult crimes, to dig out some gangs of cultists, crush a batch of hard cores, and destroy their organization system and capital source. Actually it was a simple criminal case, but several days later, the CCP turned it to a case concerning religious belief, completely changing its nature. Immediately, there was an uproar on the Internet. Sensible people have already seen the flaws in it. As the saying goes, “Though drunken, one’s real interest is not in wine.” The CCP wants to make a big fuss over this case so as to persecute and crack down on the Church of Almighty God and the underground churches in Mainland China, and this is exactly its main purpose of diverting public attention. The CCP takes such a “skillful” step. It attempts to achieve its base aim of eliminating the Church of Almighty God by the Zhaoyuan murder. The CCP is really playing the trick of a thief crying “stop thief,” hiding the evil intention, and having another plot!

    The true way has been persecuted since ancient times. In the Age of the Grace, King Herod learned that Jesus, King of Israel, was born. Fearing that he might lose his throne, he killed all the babies under two in Israel and its territory. Similarly, in the end time when Almighty God, the Lord Jesus who has returned in the flesh, carries out the work in China, the CCP is also panicked, like King Herod, fearing that God’s arrival will endanger its position. In order to hinder people from coming before God and continue its dictatorial rule, the CCP tells lies and spreads rumors by every possible means all the time, framing up, fabricating lies, and attacking, and moreover it uses the media, the CCP’s mouthpiece, to wantonly discredit the Church of Almighty God and brutally persecutes and hunts God’s chosen people. The facts are enough to prove that the CCP is the contemporary King Herod and the evil force of resisting God. Even so, under the CCP’s suppression and crackdown, God’s chosen people of the Church of Almighty God push the gospel work to its climax by the wisdom, faith, and strength God gives them.

    In just over twenty years, Almighty God’s word has spread throughout China. And now the kingdom gospel spreads rapidly in every country overseas. Almighty God’s word has got into newspapers in western countries; the experience testimony articles of God’s chosen people of the Church of Almighty God undergoing the CCP’s brutal persecution, interrogation by tortures, and all kinds of inhuman torments have been published in western newspapers; various videos of recitation of God’s word, hymns, and testimonies of God’s chosen people suffering the CCP’s persecution have also been spread on the Internet. Speaking of that, I think it’s not difficult for us to understand why the CCP wants to transfer the “Zhaoyuan Case” to a case concerning religious belief. This is because God’s chosen people of the Church of Almighty God have already made its evil deeds public to the world, and all countries have known its evil deeds of persecuting God and God’s chosen people. In order to cover up its sins to the utmost, continue its dictatorial rule, turn China into a “region without God,” and make those ignorant people worship it as God forever, enshrine the “Communist Party,” this “Satanism,” in their hearts, no longer have their own thoughts and ability to resist, and obey and accept its rule blindly, the CCP begins its “black” plan, scheming to uproot the Church of Almighty God. Thus, the case in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province becomes a catalyst for the CCP to crack down on the Church of Almighty God. However, no matter how the CCP fabricates against and frames the Church of Almighty God, lies are lies and can’t stand the test of facts. I believe that all those who are far-sighted can see its flaws and have their own extraordinary insight. Here, I just want to talk with you about a question: On what basis did the government allege that Zhang and other people are members of the Church of Almighty God?

    It can be seen from the Focus Interview of CCTV that Zhang claimed that he is a believer in Almighty God, and the police searched out the books of God’s word from his house. So the CCP police and media judged that Zhang is a member of the Church of Almighty God. I may ask: In the past, when handling cases, did the police confirm the suspect’s identity only according to his or her one-sided confession or according to the so-called “material evidences” received from nowhere without investigation? However, there is no need for the CCP police to make themselves clear about some matters, because their duty is not to let the public and the victim’s family know the truth and return justice to the victim, but to see if the confession is favorable to the CCP. As long as it is of a little use, they will make a big fuss over it in the media, the mouthpiece of the government, and whip up public opinion so as to safeguard the rights of those who are on the same side with them.

    Then, how can it be ascertained if Zhang and the others are members of the Church of Almighty God? In fact, this question is very simple. We can make a right judgment according to the principles for accepting people in the Church of Almighty God. The Church of Almighty God has definite principles for preaching the gospel: “Only those who truly believe in their heart that there is God and are willing to seek the true way and have good humanity can be preached to.” “Never preach to those who have a very bad humanity, who have a bad reputation, who can do anything bad, or who are wicked people.” It can be said that members of the Church of Almighty God have been preaching the gospel strictly according to the principles of God’s family, preaching to those who have a good humanity. Over years, people from various denominations and sects also say, “Good people who genuinely believe in God in our church are all converted by the people of the Church of Almighty God.” So we actually needn’t investigate if Zhang and the others are the members of the Church of Almighty God, because they are not up to standard. How could members of the Church of Almighty God preach to such kind of people? The answer is definite: We never preach to wicked people without humanity or take them to the Church of Almighty God. Therefore, regarding Zhang’s claim that he has believed in Almighty God for seven years, I have nothing to say but that he is shameless and extremely foolish.

    Additionally, if Zhang has believed in Almighty God for seven years, doesn’t he know that it is dangerous to preach the gospel in public places in Mainland China? And isn’t it very ridiculous for him to ask for the phone number at a McDonald’s where there are so many people? Furthermore, believers in Almighty God don’t pursue to go up to heaven. God requires man to pursue the truth and pursue to know God, live by God’s word in everything, pursue to be transformed in disposition, break away from the disturbance and siege of satanic force, live out the likeness of a real man, live under God’s care and keeping, and worship and praise God normally on earth. How come Zhang Lidong doesn’t know this if it is true that he reads God’s word at home every day?

    For many years, the CCP always claims that the Church of Almighty God is a cult and asks people to do bad things. But why doesn’t it show any fact to the public? It’s no wonder that the government dare not make the contents of the books of God’s word known to the public, because all God’s words teach man to walk the right way of human life and be a person who has conscience and humanity.

    Besides, why were the background sounds different when Zhang’s talk was played in the video? The news report also mentioned that a puppy was killed. The CCP never cherished animals. What could it prove by talking about animals? And how did that book appear in that place? It’s hard to say if it was put there by the police. Moreover, according to the official report, the Church of Almighty God is like a gang, and they will cut off the ears of those who don’t accept the gospel, gouge out their eyes, and break their arms and legs. Then, why is the CCP never revenged by those “villains” who are revengeful since it has been frenziedly persecuting and afflicting God’s chosen people for so many years? Is it that the Christians in the Church of Almighty God disturb the social order? Or is it that the CCP brings inconvenience to people’s life by creating terrible rumors repeatedly and “cracking down on the cult”? As an atheistic country with dictatorship, is it qualified to determine and judge what an orthodoxy is and what a cult is? I believe that people from all circles of life and people with discerning eyes also have some analyses of these questions. So it’s unnecessary for me to speak more here.

    As the saying goes, “Facts speak louder than words, and people have a sense of natural justice.” Here I hope that people who are concerned about this event shouldn’t only be satisfied with discerning the CCP’s little tricks, but should take this opportunity to log in the website of the Church of Almighty God, pay attention to the word Almighty God expresses in the end time, and read the contents of the word of Almighty God. Then the CCP’s rumors will collapse by itself.
