Eastern Light | Massimo Introvigne | Part 2 : Analyzing the CCP’s Rumors Against The Church of Almighty God

As is well known, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) seized power through lies and violence, and it relies on lies and violence to maintain its power. The CCP’s rule is nothing but lies, violence, and murder. The CCP propagates atheism, regarding religion as the spiritual opium of the people. Christians preach the gospel and witness for God to carry out God’s will, but the CCP condemns such righteous deeds as abandoning and breaking up their families, and arrests and imprisons Christians on various false charges. In mainland China, Christians from various house churches, particularly from CAG, suffer brutal oppression and persecution for the sake of their religious belief, some of whom were left disabled or died. Many Christians have gone into exile and were rendered homeless with their families scattered. Countless Christian families have been thus broken! In this episode, we have invited Professor Massimo Introvigne, an Italian scholar of new religious movements, founder and managing director of Center for Studies on New Religions, to talk about why the CCP oppresses and persecutes The Church of Almighty God , whether the CCP’s accusations against The Church of Almighty God are true, and who is the main culprit behind the breakdown of Christian families, and so on. The truth will be uncovered, and the CCP’s cruel and evil essence against God that wins fame through deceiving the public and fights against justice will be exposed. Please stay tuned!

Eastern Lightning | Gospel Movie clip (1) – Why Does the CCP Monitor and Oppress Christians So Much?

The Chinese Constitution clearly stipulates freedom of religion, but behind the scenes, the government expends vast human and financial resources on madly suppressing religious beliefs and brutally persecuting Christians. They have not even stopped at purchasing the most advanced surveillance equipment to monitor, track, and arrest Christians. The Chinese government has stripped its citizens of their right to freedom of belief and has wantonly deprived believers of their right to subsistence. So what really is the reason and the goal behind the CCP doing all of this? Continue reading

2018 Full Christian Movie “The Lies of Communism: Account of the CCP’s Brainwashing” English Dubbed

Zhang Mingdao is a Christian in The Church of Almighty God who has experienced several years of Almighty God’s work in the last days, understands some truths, and can see the real significance of human life. He is resolved to abandon everything and follow God, and bear witness for God’s work and appearance of the last days. Once, while Zhang Mingdao was in the midst of spreading the gospel, he was arrested by Chinese Communist police, who carried out inhuman torture and torment on him, attempting to force him to divulge information about the leaders and finances of the church. Zhang Mingdao prayed to God and relied on God. He endured the painful torture, torment, and cruel beating, and stood firm witness. The Chinese Communist police were shamed into anger, and determined that Zhang Mingdao was no ordinary believer. They thought that he must be a leader in The Church of Almighty God, and decided to put Zhang Mingdao through brainwashing. Thereon they brought Zhang Mingdao to a mysterious base for brainwashing. During a month of brainwashing struggle, Chinese Communist officials, a professor from the social sciences institute, police academy lecturers, psychologists, and clergymen took turns to wage battle. They alternately used atheism, materialism, scientific knowledge, traditional culture, and a variety of rumors and fallacies to forcibly carry out brainwashing reform on Zhang Mingdao and other Christians, eight in all. The Communists tried to force them to sign statements of repentance to deny God and betray God and make them serve the cause of the Communist Party’s arrest of Christians. Zhang Mingdao and the others depended on the words of God and on the power of prayer to carry out well-grounded rebuttal of these heresies and fallacies, causing the vicious forces of the Chinese Communist Party to suffer a thorough and shameful defeat. In this war without the smoke of gunpowder, truth triumphed over fallacy, and justice triumphed over evil. Zhang Mingdao and the others defeated Satan’s evil forces through reliance on God, and bore resounding and glorious witness for God.

Eastern Light | Rosita Šorytė: Asylum Should be Granted to Christian Refugees Based on Objective Information

Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) took power, it has never ceased in persecuting religious beliefs. The CCP has openly designated Christianity and Catholicism as cults, and the Bible as a cult book. Countless copies of it have been confiscated and burned. Since 1995, the CCP has included many house churches, including The Church of Almighty God (CAG), in cult lists and began its open repression and persecution. After Xi Jinping took office, the CCP has intensified its crackdown on Christianity, in particular The Church of Almighty God. It even deploys armed police to carry out maniacal repression and arrests, and also uses all kinds of media to manipulate public opinion and discredit The Church of Almighty God. CAG Christians had to flee overseas to escape the persecution of the CCP and applied for asylum in democracies. However, governments of countries such as South Korea, France, and Italy do not acknowledge the fact that these Christians are persecuted and refuse to grant them asylum. What are the reasons behind it? In the episode, we have invited Ms. Rosita Šorytė as our guest, who is a former Lithuanian diplomat and currently the president of International Observatory of Religious Liberty of Refugees (ORLIR). She will analyze and talk about the reasons why these democratic countries refuse to grant CAG Christians refugee status, such as the fake news manufactured by the CCP, the refugee crisis in Europe, and economic pressure exerted by China. Please stay tuned!

Church Life Movie | ”Awoken” | How Christians Break Free From the Shackles of Fame and Status

Her name is Chen Xi, and since she was little the education and influence of her parents and her schooling made her always want to stand out from the crowd and seek to be above others, so she was diligent in her studies and would spare no effort. After believing in God Chen Xi read a great deal of God’s words and came to understand some truths. She saw that the only correct path in life is to believe in and follow God and became an enthusiastic seeker, and was very proactive in performing her duty. Chen Xi went abroad in 2016 to escape the pursuit and persecution of the Chinese Communist government, and needed to use English when performing her duty of spreading the gospel and bearing witness to God’s work in the last days. She felt honored, and that she was a rare talent. Just as she was filled with confidence and was thinking of really making a place for herself in the church, she discovered that her brothers and sisters shared fellowship on God’s words with light and that they had a better grasp of English than her. She didn’t want to fall behind, so in order to surpass others and be looked up to and commended by them, she redoubled her learning efforts. A bit of time passed but she still didn’t match up to the others. Chen Xi could not accept this reality and she found herself living every day within the pain of struggling for her name and personal benefit. She no longer had the heart to pursue the truth or focus on entry into life, and she was particularly unable to perform her duty well. She fell into pessimism and disappointment…. It was then that she came in front of God in prayer and read His words—the judgment and chastisement of His words awakened her soul and allowed her to clearly see the essence of reputation and status as well as the consequences of her being bound and afflicted by these things. She came to understand the significance of performing her duty, the true value of life, and what kind of life is true happiness. From then on she began to have proper goals to pursue and no longer be subject to the strictures of face or status. She also began to focus on pursuing the truth and fulfilling the duty of a creature to repay God’s love …

Feeling after watching: Pray with our heart, God will see our true heart. This is the true experience of the Christians of the Church of Almighty GodContinue reading
