On August 21st 2014, “Shandong Zhaoyuan Cult-related Intentional Homicide” was publicly tried by Yantai City Intermediate People’s Court. The defendants Zhang Fan, Zhang Lidong, Lyu Yingchun, Zhang Hang, and Zhang Qiaolian appeared in court. Like many others, I paid great attention to the public trial on these thugs and expected severe punishment on them. After watching the court hearing, I couldn’t help crying out: These guys are actually psychopaths! China’s court can publicly try a group of psychopaths. Won’t it make people laugh their heads off? So many so-called “master-hands” at handling cases, “judges,” and “experts” can’t tell the difference between psychopaths and normal people and even carry out such a high-profile, solemn, and serious public trial. It will surely add a brushstroke which is “thick and heavy in colors” on the history of China’s judicature and will surely be a laughingstock of the whole world.
Let’s look at the court hearing. Lyu Yingchun said, “I know Almighty God. … From childhood I knew that I am God Godself. … I firmly believed that I am a firstborn son.” “I found that I am God Godself. … Except for Zhang Lidong, Zhang Hang, and Zhang Duo who truly believe in ‘Almighty God,’ others are all cheaters. … If someone gives us his phone number … he will get a chance of being saved.” “Zhang Fan and I are the only true spokesman of ‘Almighty God.’ The government cracks down on Zhao Weishan’s ‘Almighty God,’ instead of our ‘Almighty God.’ Theirs is the false ‘Almighty God,’ while ours is the true ‘Almighty God.’” Zhang Fan said, “In the organization of Almighty God, Lyu Yingchun and I hold the highest position. We’re both ‘God Godself.’ My father, my sister, my brother, and Zhang Qiaolian are all ‘chief priests.’ Now I think that only my father, my brother, my sister, Lyu Yingchun, Zhang Qiaolian, and I are true believers in ‘Almighty God.’” “In 2010, I was a firstborn son of ‘Almighty God.’ This May, I received the ‘authority’ from heaven to kill evil spirits and became ‘God Godself.’” “I’m sure I am ‘God Godself,’ that is, one of the ‘two witnesses.’ … I even more ascertain that Lyu Yingchun and I are ‘God Godself.’” Zhang Lidong said, “About seven years ago, I began to believe in ‘Almighty God’ through my daughter Zhang Fan’s introduction. I am ‘God’s lamb’ and a ‘believer’ in the church, and the ‘shepherd’ leads me to listen to God’s word. Zhang Fan is my ‘shepherd.’ Lyu Yingchun is also a ‘shepherd’ and a ‘firstborn son.’” Wow! Look at these incoherent words. One moment they say they are God and the next they say they are firstborn sons, and then they are two Gods. In any case, only the several of them are believers in ‘Almighty God.’ Some are Gods, some are firstborn sons, some are priests, and some are followers. It reminded me of the game I played as a child: A group of young children play house. Someone acts as Heavenly Emperor, someone acts as Heavenly Queen, and someone acts as a fairy maiden…. Now we see that in the court, a group of adults are staging a farce like the game we played in childhood. It is really both funny and annoying! The sensible ones can easily find that these are psychopaths and paranoia patients. However, China’s court publicly try them with seeming seriousness. It is actually fooling the public!
When looking up the related materials, I found that it is defined like this in medical science: Paranoia, also known as delusional disorder, is a psychiatric diagnosis. It means “having one or more non-bizarre delusions, without any other psychiatric symptoms.” For the concept of paranoia, the term “monomania” is ever used. Its symptoms are: The patient expresses an idea or a thought strongly and permanently; the thought excessively affects his daily life, and his life style is often distorted to an unintelligible extent; the most essential point is that no matter how less these strange things are likely to happen, the patient accepts all of them without any doubt, and any attempt to deny these thoughts will arouse the patient’s extreme emotional reactions, often with anger, hostility, and so on. Checking against these symptoms, we can easily find that Zhang Lidong and others are infected with paranoia. Now the top priority of the judicial department is to identify these psychopaths’ criminal responsibility as soon as possible and then investigate their criminal responsibility according to the identification results. However, China’s judicial department didn’t do so. Instead, the CCP government lost no time to give a “killing order” to crack down on the Church of Almighty God after the incident. From this, we can see that the CCP government is as absurd and ridiculous as these psychopaths. During dozens of years when the CCP is in power, we see that the CCP is always so absurd and unreasonable and fools the people. For example, during the “Great Leap Forward,” it put forward “surpassing the UK and catching up with the US in three years,” so that the common people took out all their iron pots and ironware to make the iron and steel; in the “Cultural Revolution,” it mobilized the Red Guards to safeguard Mao Zedong, giving rise to overall franticness and ten years of catastrophe; in the Reform and Opening period, it put forward that “whether black or white, the one which catches mice is a good cat,” so that almost everyone went into business. Through all these facts, the whole world see that under the CCP’s rule, people all over the country often become frenzied together. Today the CCP stages a farce of publicly trying psychopaths, and thus calls on people all over the country to stand against and hate the Church of Almighty God and creates an atmosphere of “everyone rising up to attack” the Church of Almighty God, attempting to make all people become frenzied with it.
Some psychopaths kill a person and they claim themselves “Almighty God.” Can it show that there is something wrong with the Church of Almighty God? Actually, we often see or hear that psychopaths kill people. Among them, there are communists. I also saw with my own eyes that several psychopaths in the nude chased others and beat them while singing “The East Is Red” loudly or shouting quotations of Mao Zedong. According to the CCP’s reasoning, should we severely fight the CCP and call on all the people to hate it? Some psychopaths say that they are Heavenly Emperor after killing others. Should the CCP send someone to heaven and fight Heavenly Emperor? Some are possessed by the evil spirits and say that they are Mao Zedong reincarnate, Zhu De reincarnate, or Zhou Enlai reincarnate. Should the CCP enshrine them as Mao Zedong, Zhu De, or Zhou Enlai? We often hear some folklores. Someone is possessed by an evil spirit, saying that he is Bodhisattva Guan Yin; someone is possessed by an evil spirit, saying that he is Guan Gong or Yue Fei, and he hits and curses people everywhere. Such things are common among the people. But no one will catch them and send them to the public security organs, have them publicly tried in court, and hold them accountable, because all the common people know that these are psychopaths and lunatics and their words don’t count. Such kind of people should be sent to the mental hospital for treatment. However, the CCP’s court publicly tries a group of psychopaths as criminals and makes a fuss over it to slander and frame the Church of Almighty God. Won’t it make people laugh their heads off? No government of the past put psychopaths on trial and no psychopaths who hit or harm others were sent to the government for trial. No country or ruling party tries psychopaths or takes their words seriously. In the Western countries, if a psychopath who speaks incoherently commits crimes, he will first be sent to see a psychologist and have a medical appraisal from a psychiatrist, and the court won’t handle it directly. Why can China ruled by the Communist Party set such a precedent and publicly try psychopaths? Why can China’s court be serious with psychopaths? There is only one explanation: The CCP is also a group of psychopaths and is the reincarnation of real demons. When the CCP is frenzied to the extreme, it will welcome its destruction. This exactly fulfills a famous Western saying, “Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes mad.”

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!

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! Continue reading
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.

On May 28th, a woman surnamed Wu was beaten to death alive by Zhang and five other people at a McDonald’s in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province. This outrageous tragedy shocked the world immediately. It aroused people’s strong anger and rapidly became everyone’s focus at the same time. However, the police of Zhaoyuan City didn’t publicize the case until three days after the case occurred and claimed that the suspects were members of the Church of Almighty God. A tossed stone raises a thousand ripples. Very soon, it raised many voices of doubt. People all criticized that the authorities distorted the fact and sheltered the criminals. In the face of the public doubt, the CCP gave no heed at all. Then, the authorities said that the local police had already carried out a “Special Action of Fighting against the Cult.” Immediately, condemning spread all over the Internet. The netizens all rebuked the CCP for diverting people’s attention by using the name of “cult” and absolving the criminals and their backing. The netizens posted 500,000 replies to comment on this incident, but unexpectedly most of them were soon deleted and only 70,000 replies were left. Some new replies were even deleted immediately after they were posted. Being disappointed and angry, the netizens even more expected to know the truth and see the evil men punished soon.
Recently, the hottest piece of news on the Internet and media is “the Case in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province.” The reason why it’s so hot isn’t that the case itself is a big one but that the truth of the CCP attempting to frame the Church of Almighty God through the case has been exposed, thus causing the public uproar. People of various circles raise a query and criticism on it. The case is full of loopholes and the CCP can’t justify itself. As a result, the case becomes a big joke. Since there are so many lies in it, why does the CCP still fabricate it? What’s the CCP’s sinister intention hidden behind it? How many people can see through the CCP’s true face of being sinister and malicious? Let’s explore these questions together.
After being reported, the case has caused the attention of both China and the West. The sensible men can see that there are too many lies in it. Concerning the case in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province, people put forward many doubtful points:
First, the murder in Zhaoyuan happened on May 28th, but the police in Zhaoyuan only tweeted about the case simply on the 29th. On the 31st, the police in Zhaoyuan micro-blogged it again and went more into detail than last time, but the names of the murderers were still not mentioned in the report. The victim was beaten to death on the spot and the murderers were arrested on the spot too. Human testimony and material evidence are both available and the case has been broken. Why did the police conceal the criminals’ names? The police explained that they feared it might affect the investigation. The statement is legally untenable. Some netizens who know the law answered the questions, “1. No law forbids making an adult criminal’s name known. 2. If the investigation is affected, the case should be kept confidential. This case isn’t in such situation. 3. If there are many doubts in the case or it’s a minor one, in order to protect the rights and interests of the suspect, his or her name shouldn’t be made known to the public. This case isn’t in such situation.” On the other hand, while the police were dilatory in making the criminals’ names known, the CCTV reported the case swiftly. It’s not difficult to find a serious problem in the CCTV’s news report: The report didn’t investigate the murderers for criminal responsibility but aimed at the Church of Almighty God, and persecution on the Church of Almighty God also began. No wonder some netizens who know the law said, “In a criminal case, a person should be convicted according to his acts but not his thoughts. In three days, the criminal case was turned into a religious incident. The nature of the incident was completely changed. It is unavoidable for people to suspect that the media, with concealed intentions, is making the tendency of public opinion.” Continue reading
