64. The Principles of Impeaching Leaders and Workers

(1) Leaders and workers who do not do practical work may, upon confirmation of such by several people who understand the truth, be denounced, impeached, and replaced;

(2) Leaders and workers who go rogue and severely violate work arrangements should, upon accurate verification of their having done so, be denounced, impeached, and replaced;

(3) A leader or worker who commits a transgression or exhibits corruption should be helped lovingly. If they refuse to accept the truth, they may be denounced, impeached, and replaced;

(4) If a leader or worker should commit multifarious acts of evil and makes others suffer, entrapping and wrongfully accusing them, they must be impeached and denounced, and their dismissal must be enacted.

Relevant Words of God:

How should God’s chosen ones treat antichrists? They must identify them, expose them, report them, and cast them out. No matter how an antichrist comes into a position of leadership, he invariably is one who resists God. You must not accept the leadership of an antichrist, and you also must not recognize him as your leader, for what he does is not to lead you into the words of God; he wants to drag you down to hell and haul you along the same path of the antichrists that he is walking. He causes you to join with him in resistance against God and in disrupting and destroying God’s work. He tugs and pulls at you so that you come to wallow with him in the mire. Will you consent to this? If you do, and if you compromise with him, beg him for mercy, or are conquered by him, then you have not borne witness, and you are a person who betrays both the truth and God—and such people cannot be saved. What are the conditions a person must meet in order to receive salvation? First of all, they must possess the ability to identify satanic antichrists; they must have this aspect of the truth. It is only by possessing this aspect of the truth that they can genuinely believe in God and refrain from worshiping or following man; only people who can identify antichrists have the ability to truly believe in God and follow and bear witness to Him. In order to identify antichrists, people must first learn to see people and things with complete clarity and understanding; they must be able to perceive the essence of antichrists, and they must see through all of their conspiracies, tricks, inner motivations, and objectives. If you can do this, then you can stand firm. If you want to obtain salvation, then the first test you must pass is to learn how to defeat Satan and how to overcome and triumph over hostile forces and interference from the outside world. Once you possess stature and sufficient truth to persevere to the end in a battle against Satan’s forces, and have defeated them, then—and only then—can you pursue the truth steadily, and only then can you step steadfastly and without mishap upon the path of pursuing the truth and being granted salvation. If you cannot pass this test, then it can be said that you are in great danger, and you are liable to be captured by an antichrist and come to live under Satan’s influence.

What is the attitude that people should have in terms of how to treat a leader or worker? If what he does is right, then you can obey him; if what he does is wrong, then you can expose him, and even oppose him and raise a different opinion. If he is unable to do practical work, and is revealed to be a false leader, a false worker or an antichrist, then you can refuse to accept his leadership, and you can also report and expose him. However, some of God’s chosen people do not understand the truth and are particularly cowardly, and so they do not dare do anything. They say, “If the leader kicks me out, I’m finished; if he has everyone expose or forsake me, then I will no longer be able to believe in God. If I leave the church, then God will not want me and will not save me. The church represents God!” Do these ways of thinking not affect such a person’s attitude toward those things? Could it really be true that if the leader expels you, you can no longer be saved? Is the question of your salvation dependent upon your leader’s attitude toward you? Why do so many people have such a degree of fear? If, as soon as one who is a false leader or an antichrist threatens you, you do not dare to report it higher up and even guarantee that from then on, you will be of a single mind with the leader, then are you not done for? Is this the sort of person who pursues truth? Not only do you not dare to expose such wicked behavior as might be committed by satanic antichrists, but on the contrary, you obey them and even take their words as the truth, to which you submit. Is this not the epitome of stupidity? Then, when you are harmed, is that not what you deserve? Has God caused you to be harmed? You have wished it upon yourself. You took an antichrist to be your leader, and treated him as though he were a brother or sister—and that is your fault. What is the attitude with which one should treat an antichrist? One should expose him and struggle against him. If you cannot do this alone, then multiple people must come together and report him. Upon discovering that certain leaders and workers higher up were walking the path of the antichrist, making the brothers and sisters suffer, not doing real work, and coveting the blessing of status, some people signed a petition to remove those antichrists. What a fantastic job these people did! It shows that people understand the truth, that they possess a certain amount of stature, and that they are neither controlled nor deceived by Satan. This also proves that antichrists and false leaders do not hold a dominant position in the church, and they do not dare to show their true selves too plainly in anything they say and do. If they do reveal themselves, there are people to monitor them, identify them, and cast them out. That is, in the hearts of people who genuinely understand the truth, a person’s status, prestige, and authority are not the things that hold sway; all those who understand the truth are able to have discernment, and they rethink and reflect upon what path people ought to follow in their faith in God, as well as how they should treat leaders and workers. They also begin to think about whom people should follow, which behaviors constitute following people, and which behaviors constitute following God. Having pondered these truths for several years, and listened often to sermons, they have unconsciously come to understand the truths about believing in God, and so they have gained some stature. They have embarked upon the right track of believing in God.

Sermon and Fellowship Excerpts for Reference:

The most just and reasonable way to examine whether leaders and workers at all levels have truth reality should be primarily based on whether they are accepted and approved of by the majority of God’s chosen people. A leader or worker who does not receive the support and approval of God’s chosen is certain to be without truth reality. If a leader or worker is accused and hated by numerous people among God’s chosen, then it is enough to prove that this person is a false leader, an antichrist and a devil. When facing such false leaders, antichrists and devils, God’s chosen can unite in denouncing, removing and banishing the person. Carrying out such actions is necessary in order to protect God’s chosen and prevent Satan from disrupting and interfering with God’s work. It is entirely in accordance with the truth principle and God’s will for God’s chosen to practice the supervision of leaders and workers at all levels, because while God is working to save people, the leaders and workers at all levels have not yet fully undergone change in their life dispositions. It is inevitable that some people will reveal their true colors when faced with status, power, money and reputation. The false leaders and false workers who have been cast out can attest to this. Over the past few years, quite a few of God’s chosen have been misled, controlled, and harmed by false leaders and antichrists, and have suffered a great deal. They have suffered terribly at their hands, and have now seen that those who do not possess truth reality are unreliable and unworthy of trust. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to practice the supervision of leaders and workers at all levels. If God’s chosen find that leaders and workers have committed evil, they can report them at any time. If they are found to be identifiable as false leaders and workers, then God’s chosen can persuade them to accept blame and resign. If the latter refuse to do so, then they have revealed themselves to be antichrists, and God’s chosen must join forces to dismiss and ban them. This is entirely in accordance with God’s will.

The Due Process of Reporting on False Leaders and False Workers

There are three principles for distinguishing and identifying false leaders and false workers: 1. It must be absolutely certain that the work of the Holy Spirit is absent; 2. They have bad humanity and notoriety; 3. They neglect their duty, do not do practical work and commit much evil.

It is the most accurate method to distinguish and identify the false leaders and false workers according to the three principles above. God’s chosen people must have a clear understanding of the fact that no one is perfect, and that leaders and workers in general commit transgressions and exhibit corruption; however, this does not necessarily mean they are false leaders or false workers. Committing transgressions and committing evil are fundamentally different. Transgression is doing something wrong, taking the wrong way, or choosing the wrong person under clouded judgment, whereas evil is knowingly and intentionally doing evil things compulsively. It is normal for a person to commit transgressions, but if one is capable of committing all kinds of evil acts, then that person is definitely evil. If any leader or worker is found to behave in any of these three ways, they are bound to be a false leader or false worker.

The due process for reporting on a false leader or false worker is as follows: When sufficient witnesses and evidence are present when enumerating the facts according to the three principles with the corroboration and support of several people who relatively understand the truth, the said leader or worker can be reported to the upper-level leaders. The reporting on a member of the district decision-making group can be submitted to the regional decision-making group. The reporting on a member of the regional decision-making group can be submitted to the pastoral decision-making group. If the leaders and workers at all levels are irresponsible and slow in actions, it can be directly submitted to the man used by the Holy Spirit. This is the proper procedure for reporting on a false leader or false worker that leaders and workers at all levels and God’s chosen people should follow. If the problem is particularly serious and someone is clearly exposed to be a false leader or false worker who has committed much evil and aroused public anger, the chosen people of God have the rights to directly remove them. If a leader or a worker at any level attempts to shield this person, they can also be directly removed. However, it must be done with sufficient factual basis, convincing and apparent evidence that the majority can identify in order to be implemented. If the material facts are insufficient, unconvincing to people, watered down by other elements or mixed with fictions, then the reporting party is questionable. It is likely that the leader or worker is being framed by wicked people. The chosen people of God must be able to distinguish without being deceived and exploited by wicked people. They must neither wrongfully accuse a good man nor let off a wicked man. They must adhere to the truth principle in order to accord with God’s will.

Excerpted from Work Arrangements

If the elected leaders and workers from all levels can absolutely submit to the work arrangements from the Above, and if they can perform work according to God’s word the truth and their work have achieved some results, then God’s chosen people must accept and obey. If the workers and leaders disobey work arrangements and do otherwise, going against the truth principle when carrying out work, and do not listen to advice and do as they wish, then they are false leaders and workers, they definitely do not have the work of the Holy Spirit, and must be replaced and re-elected. If they stubbornly refuse to give up their positions, God’s chosen people have the right to refuse to accept their leadership, call them out, and report them. God’s house absolutely prohibits false leaders and antichrists from disturbing the work of God’s house and controlling God’s chosen people. Everyone who has been discovered as a false leader or an antichrist shall be dealt with, without any mercy. If whoever has discovered false leaders and antichrists doing evil and disrupting church work without reporting and exposing them, then they are people who have no sense of justice and do not protect God’s work, they are people without a heart that fears God, they are without loyalty to God. All those who do not expose or report the evildoers share in the evils perpetrated by them, and they should be listed as accomplices. Absolutely no one may oppress or take revenge against those who report and expose false leaders and antichrists. If anyone has been discovered to oppress or take revenge against those who have the bravery to report and expose evil deeds at any church, leaders and workers from all levels must investigate and verify the situation, as well as handle the matter with severity. God’s chosen people can expose and report people for committing evil acts; this is an act of justice, as well as a good deed that protects the interests of God’s house and is considerate of His will. Those who are capable of suppressing and retaliating against them are absolutely not people who fear God, they most certainly have no truth reality, they are surely antichrists and evildoers, while workers and leaders from all levels have the right to investigate and deal with them. These people can never be excused. For, wherever there are evil deeds of oppressing God’s chosen people, there exist evildoers and antichrists. This is a fact that no one can deny.

Excerpted from Work Arrangements

Now all churches have people similar to those who were in the “band of Korah.” They are up to no good, struggle for power and gain, and create chaos and disturbances in churches everywhere. They are purely obstacles and stumbling blocks of the house of God. These people do not have an ounce of love for the truth and moreover do not practice the truth. From start to finish, at no time do their satanic dispositions change, their ambition to establish their own independent kingdom never dies, and they specialize in opposing God’s house. They are precisely the ones causing chaos everywhere right now. Wherever there is chaos, there are antichrist demons committing evil and causing disturbances. This is exactly the kind of conduct similar to that perpetrated by the “band of Korah.” All those who cannot truly obey the work arrangements of the Above and intentionally resist the man used by the Holy Spirit and can do their own things belong in the same category as the “band of Korah.” All such people are regarded as antichrists, and God’s chosen people should learn how to distinguish them and report and expose these demons. Wicked people who disrupt and disturb God’s work and do all kinds of evil are considered demons. If wicked people and demons involved in church activities everywhere are not reported and exposed by those who know their true colors, God’s chosen people will only be able to see through them by way of long-term observation, and this will delay and disrupt the work of God’s house, as well as bring losses to the lives of His chosen people. Therefore, any person who knows the true colors of wicked people and demons must stand up, expose them, and report them in order to defend God’s work, and must not act like it has nothing to do with them and say nothing. Wicked people certainly will not repent. God does not save wicked people, and so anyone who knows the true colors of wicked people or sees wicked people and demons disturbing the church should bravely expose and report them and cooperate with God’s chosen people in punishing these wicked people and demons. Only then are they people who are considerate of God’s intentions and protect God’s work. Anyone who sees the true colors of wicked people and demons but does not expose them is being an accomplice to their wicked deeds and will be implicated by them. Thus, eliminating all wicked people and demons is an unshirkable obligation of God’s chosen people. God’s chosen people should never hesitate to do what is right, and eliminate all obstacles and stumbling blocks for the sake of expanding the gospel and doing God’s will. God’s chosen people must be clear: All those like the “band of Korah” shall be destroyed.
