Question 4: Although the One you believe in is Almighty God, what you read is the word of Almighty God, and how you pray is in the name of Almighty God, according to what we know, your Church of Almighty God was founded by a man whom you obey in everything. According to your testimonies, this man is a priest, a person used by God in charge of all administrative matters. I am puzzled by it. Who was the one that founded The Church of Almighty God? How was it begotten? Can you clarify it?
Answer: Since you know the One we believe in is Almighty God, what we read is the word of Almighty God, and how we pray is in the name of Almighty God, why do you say that The Church of Almighty God was created by a man? I do not know what you based your opinion on. The One we believe in is the incarnate Almighty God, not a man. Most of the words spoken by Almighty God are recorded in the book The Word Appears in the Flesh. Since you have not read The Word Appears in the Flesh, it absolutely cannot be said that you have a real understanding of The Church of Almighty God. From the Chinese Communist government's persistent publicity and rumors that The Church of Almighty God was created by a man, it is enough to prove that the CCP doesn’t understand The Church of Almighty God at all. The CCP doesn’t even discern how The Church of Almighty God was begotten, but still insists that The Church of Almighty God was created by a man. Isn’t it absurd? Don’t you think this is preposterous? I ask you then, by whom was Christianity created? By whom was Catholicism created? In fact, Christianity, Catholicism, and the Eastern Orthodox Church were all begotten by the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus. Although the apostles established churches everywhere, it does not mean that Christianity was created by the apostles. The churches in whatever age were begotten because of the appearance and work of God. The churches in the Age of Grace were begotten because of the Lord Jesus’ appearance and work. The churches in the Age of Kingdom were begotten because of Almighty God's appearance and work. Had it not been for God’s appearance and work, could the apostles have been able to establish the churches on their own? Those who joined the church were believers of God. They were not believers of the apostles. Therefore, it cannot be said that the churches in whatever age were founded by man. Even when it was the apostles who established the churches, they still needed to be built in the Lord Jesus' name. The apostles could not say that the churches were founded by them. This is a publicly recognized fact! Why can’t people of the CCP speak according to the facts? Why distort the facts so blatantly? Isn’t it preposterous? Almighty God appeared at work in the last days to express the truth. When Christians of all factions who love the truth heard the voice of God speak and saw God’s appearance at work, they all returned to Almighty God and they were brought before the throne of God, thus creating The Church of Almighty God. There are many people who established churches everywhere, but can you say that the establishers of the churches are their creators? The creation of The Church of Almighty God was begotten because of Almighty God’s appearance and work. This is the fact that no one can deny.
