2. The CCP has disseminated information online saying that in order to spread the gospel and testify to God, people who believe in Almighty God give up their families and jobs. Some people even remain unmarried their whole lives. The CCP says that your beliefs destroy families. Is what the CCP says true?
The CCP is an atheistic political party that believes in Marx and Satanism. Throughout its history, it has been hostile to God, persecuted all religious beliefs, and abused countless Christians. That it should judge and vilify those who believe in God is natural; this is determined by its nature, which hates the truth and resists God. But you are people who believe in the Lord Jesus—so why do you trust the words of the Communist Party and not the words of the Lord Jesus? Do such people believe in God? For those who believe in God, the Lord Jesus’ words are clear about how to approach worldly things, family, and the life of the flesh—so why do you still listen to the fallacies and devilish words of the CCP and judge and condemn Christians? Just what is the matter here? The Lord Jesus plainly said, “Truly I say to you, There is no man that has left house, or parents, or brothers, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting” (Luk 18:29–30). “If any man come to Me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple” (Luk 14:26). “Whoever he be of you that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be My disciple” (Luk 14:33). When people renounce their families and worldly entanglements to follow the Lord, this is entirely in accordance with the Lord’s will, and it is praised by God. Yet why does the religious world trust the words of the Communist Party, which is Satan the devil, and not those of the Lord Jesus? Why does it not trust the words of the Holy Spirit? Why does it stand on the side of the great red dragon in judging and condemning those who believe in God? This shows that the religious world is not of one mind with God, that they are in cahoots with Satan, and this is sufficient to demonstrate that they are the nonbelievers, the spawn of the great red dragon!
Many centuries ago, the disciples and apostles of the Lord Jesus renounced their families and all worldly entanglements to follow the Lord, and they proclaimed and testified to the Lord Jesus’ gospel across the land. For two thousand years, countless pious Christians have forsaken family, marriage, work, and worldly entanglements, wave upon wave of them working and preaching for the Lord, and thus the gospel of the Lord Jesus has spread to the ends of the earth. From the work and words of the Lord Jesus, they have come to understand some truths, recognizing that the Lord Jesus is the Redeemer of mankind, and that only by accepting the Lord Jesus, and confessing and repenting to the Lord, can their sins be forgiven and they can receive the grace and blessings bestowed by the Lord. So that man may receive the salvation of the Lord Jesus, they have followed the words of the Lord Jesus, forsaking everything to preach and bear witness to the salvation of the Lord Jesus—this is praised and remembered by God, and it is mankind’s most righteous enterprise. In Christianity and Catholicism, furthermore, this is very common. Such behavior is praised and admired by Christians; for many, it has even become a model to be emulated. Yet the CCP vilifies and condemns Christians, saying that their renouncement of family and career to believe in God and spread the gospel has wrecked families. Is this not a denial and condemnation of the words of the Lord Jesus? Is it not a denial and condemnation of all those who have forsaken everything to work and preach for the Lord over the last two thousand years? Does it not condemn their dedication and their expending of themselves as wrong? Are such views tenable in Christianity and Catholicism? Is this not blatantly offering resistance to God? During the last days, since the commencement of Almighty God’s work of judgment, Christians in The Church of Almighty God have read the words of Almighty God, they have seen that Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus, the appearance of Christ of the last days, and that Almighty God expresses the truth and does the work of judgment and cleansing of man in order to resolve the sinful nature of man, utterly saving man from sin and bringing him into the kingdom of God. Today, the great disasters have begun. Only by accepting the judgment and chastisement of Almighty God and having their corrupt dispositions cleansed can people be protected by God and remain amid these great disasters of the last days, while those who have not received Almighty God’s salvation of the last days will be plunged into catastrophe and destroyed. And so, the Christians of The Church of Almighty God understand God’s urgent will to save mankind; like the disciples and apostles of the Lord Jesus who forsook everything to follow the Lord and proclaimed and testified to the gospel of the Lord, they gladly put aside the enjoyments of the flesh, renounce family and job, endure the ever-present risk of being arrested and killed by the CCP, and do everything they can to preach and testify to Almighty God’s kingdom gospel. These good deeds are what most accord with God’s will, they are praised by God, and to do them is to follow the will of God! As the Lord Jesus said, “Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mak 16:15). Almighty God says, “As members of the human race and devout Christians, it is the responsibility and obligation of us all to offer up our minds and bodies for the fulfillment of God’s commission, for our entire being came from God, and it exists thanks to the sovereignty of God. If our minds and bodies are not for God’s commission and not for the righteous cause of mankind, then our souls will be unworthy of those who were martyred for God’s commission, and much more unworthy of God, who has provided us with everything” (The Word, Vol. 1. The Appearance and Work of God. God Presides Over the Fate of All Mankind).
Today, the renouncement of everything by some Christians in The Church of Almighty God in order to preach and testify to God’s gospel of the last days is after the will of Heaven and in line with the hearts of the people! Yet the atheistic government of the CCP does not permit people to believe in God and walk the right path. It condemns and passes judgment on the good deeds of Christians, and rabidly arrests and persecutes them, which has led to many Christians from The Church of Almighty God being forced to leave their homes and loved ones, being scattered far and wide, unable to return home. It is fair to say that the great majority of The Church of Almighty God Christians’ flight from their homes has been because of their brutal oppression, detainment, and persecution at the hands of the CCP. According to incomplete statistics, from 2011 to June 2020 alone, at least more than 400,000 Christians of The Church of Almighty God were arrested. There is proof that up to 169 people have died as a result of the abuse they suffered. The families of these Christians have been torn apart—and has this not all been caused by the brutal persecution of the CCP? The cruel abuse meted out by the CCP has wreaked havoc on untold Christian families, and innumerable Christians have been forced to flee their homes—has such evil not been committed by the CCP? The Communist Party stops at nothing to arrest and persecute those who believe in God, depriving them of their right to life, not even overlooking Christians’ family members, tearing apart innumerable Christian families, ultimately placing the blame on its victims, insisting that it is the Christians who abandon their families because of their belief in God, that it is they who are wrecking their families. Is this not twisting the facts, and turning the truth on its head? Are these not shameless, barefaced lies? Huge numbers of people in democratic countries believe in God. Which of them have been persecuted and forced to flee their homes by the government because of their belief in God, unable to see their loved ones ever again? Only a satanic regime such as the CCP could so vilify and judge Christians who dedicate and expend themselves for God. This is nothing but heretical fallacy that turns the truth on its head and right into wrong. It is absolute proof that the CCP is nothing but a satanic regime; in essence, the CCP is a group belonging to Satan the devil that resists and hates God. The CCP is the prime perpetrator that has ripped apart all these Christians’ families, scattered them to the wind, and left them unable to return home!
