Obeying the Ruling Regime Is Not the Same as Obeying God

In order to deceive and tempt a Christian into forsaking God, the CCP called on a pastor of a Three-Self church to brainwash her, and this Christian and the pastor opened up a wonderful debate on Paul’s words: “Let every soul be subject to the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God” (Rom 13:1). What are their different interpretations of these words? The Three-Self pastor is subject to the CCP and takes the path of the Three-Self Church—what ulterior motive is actually there? How will the Christian refute the pastor’s argument to “be subject to the higher powers”?

How to discern orthodoxy and cults?

 

  How to differentiate between the cult and orthodoxy? There are principles of the truth to seek in it, and they are not differentiated according to any political party’s or any person’s view at will, much less according to any state or any constitution. If they’re differentiated in this way, it’s unfair. First, we must be certain what “rightness” is before we can ascertain the true way. Only the truth is the positive thing, and is the root of anything “right.” Where does the truth come from? The truth comes from Christ, and Christ is the embodiment of God’s Spirit, so the truth comes from God. All those come from God are positive things. Only the word of the Creator is the truth, and only the incarnate Christ can express the truth. This is Heaven’s will and a heavenly rule. No nation, political party, or group can disobey, much less resist or oppose. Whoever disobeys, resists, or opposes will bring destruction upon himself. It completely fulfills God’s word that the corrupt mankind brings destruction upon themselves all because of resisting God. In the world and among human society, all positive things are in accordance with Heaven’s will and people’s will. What is in accordance with Heaven’s will and people’s will is the orthodoxy. Believing in God is in accordance with Heaven’s will as well as people’s will. Being in accordance with people’s will means that most of mankind approve of believing in God, and they can all confirm in their conscience that believing in God is walking the right way and agree that the believers in God are decent and good people. So it is right and proper to believe in and obey God and worship the Creator, and it is a positive thing, and meets Heaven’s will and people’s will. What’s “evil”? “Evil” means not being in accordance with Heaven’s will, and even more acting against Heaven, running counter to right principles, and disobeying Heaven’s will and people’s will. Then, what disobeys Heaven’s will and people’s will? Not allowing people to believe in God is disobeying Heaven’s will and people’s will. All doings that mankind disapproves of and condemns in the conscience and sense are evil. All those men approve of, admit, and acknowledge in the conscience are positive things. Believing in God is a positive thing. All those things that resist God, condemn God, and oppose God are negative things. Negative things are completely done by Satan the evil force. If we can be certain about what is rightness and what is evil, it will be easy to distinguish what the orthodoxy is and what a cult is. To put it exactly, all churches that believe in the true God are the orthodoxy, all those who believe in false gods, evil spirits, or Satan the devil are cults, and all those who advocate the fallacies and heresies of resisting God, such as atheism and evolutionism, and so on are cults. Then, let us investigate the history of the Communist Party. As we all know, the Communist Party was founded by Marx, a German. He was a believer of Satanism who worshiped Satan, and claimed himself to be Satan the devil. Then, how could the Communist Party founded by such a real demon be orthodoxy? In addition, what the Communist Party tirelessly advocates is violent revolution, slaughter of mankind, and atheism. Marx said in Manifesto of the Communist Party, “A spectre is haunting Europe—the spectre of communism.” And now, the spectre of Communism has realized in the Communist Party. Thus, isn’t the Communist Party, a reactionary organization, a real cult? The Chinese Communist Party is craftier than its ancestor Marx, for Marx dared acknowledge himself to be Satan the devil, but the Chinese Communist Party dare not do that. Moreover, the Chinese Communist Party is very good at distorting the fact, confounding black and white, pretending and deceiving, and playing the trick of a thief crying “Stop thief,” even saying the orthodoxy as the false and evil, but saying the evil as orthodoxy. Clearly, the Communist Party itself is evil and reactionary, but it pretends to be right and just and does its utmost to proclaim that the Chinese Communist Party is “great, glorious, and correct,” which is the Chinese Communist Party’s consistent means. Playing the trick of a thief crying “stop thief” is what the Communist Party is very good at. The one who can deceive, cheat, fool, corrupt, and slaughter mankind most in the world is the Communist Party. Therefore, all those that are supported, advocated and approved by the Communist Party are negative things, and those that are labeled as cults and persecuted brutally by it could well be orthodoxy and the true way. Now, none except the Communist Party will condemn an orthodox church as a cult. Actually, the Communist Party is the true and real cult, and is the typical representative of all cults. It is the true Satanism in the last days and is a typical group of devils, which is to say, the most evil and insidious reactionary organization and terrorist organization. This is widely known and absolutely right.
