On August 28, 2016, a “protest,” a complete drama, was staged at the gate of the Church of Almighty God in Guro, Seoul, South Korea. Around 9 a.m., a woman, about 30, carrying a boy, came to the Church of Almighty God. At the command of another middle-aged woman, she cried and banged on the gate loudly, yelling a man’s name (surnamed Zhang). At the site there were also five old women around 60, each holding a sign with words of defaming the Church of Almighty God on it.
It is learned that this woman, surnamed Tian, is the wife of Zhang, a of the Church of Almighty God. Tian is an atheist. She believes the rumors from the CCP that slander the Church of Almighty God, and often persecutes Zhang and restrains him from believing in Almighty God. In order to force him to abandon his faith, she even tried to commit suicide to threaten him. Meanwhile, Zhang was also in danger of being arrested by the CCP because of believing in Almighty God. Unbearable of restriction and persecution by his family and the CCP, Zhang had to leave Mainland China and turn to South Korea, a democratic and free country, for asylum. In January and May of 2016, Tian came to South Korea twice and tried to force Zhang back, but she was refused by him flatly. Especially in May, she even came with a CCP spy to meet Zhang. She stole Zhang’s cellphones and passport, and even took away all his money. The CCP undercover even used the tracking device to follow Zhang, attempting to forcefully take him back to China. Fortunately, Zhang made a narrow escape. Three months later, Tian carried her son to the Church of Almighty God and cried at the gate. The director of the drama is called Wu, who is a representative of a religious website in South Korea. Three years ago, she sneaked into the Church of Almighty God, not for seeking the truth but to spy on the personal information of the believers. Her suspicious words and actions, like a CCP spy, aroused the suspicion of the majority of the believers. So they drove her out of the Church. In this March, Wu tried to sneak into the Church again but was discovered by the Church members, and then she was expelled. From then on, she has openly shown her hostile attitude toward the Church of Almighty God for many times. Moreover, recently she posted news on a religious website to condemn the Church using the information that the CCP fabricates, and in this article, she also incited Korean people to join together to resist the Church. This drama was completely directed by her on the spot. Zhang said that he and his wife Tian didn’t know Wu at all. This threw some doubts to us: Wu and Tian come from different countries, far from each other, and have different faiths. How could they meet so coincidentally? And how did Wu know Tian? Furthermore, Tian is just an ordinary Chinese woman; how could she afford the cost of the trip and the hotel expense arising from her several visits to South Korea? Why do both of them have a close relationship with the CCP? People with a discerning eye will know that the CCP must be at the back of it. According to a journalist from a famous South Korean television station, Wu got in touch with him and invited him to interview Tian three days before she came to South Korea. It shows that this matter is no coincidence, but an organized, well-planned, and premeditated act. It is manipulated and directed by the CCP and contains the CCP’s dirty scheme. It attempted to make use of Tian and her son to expand this event, so as to achieve its evil purpose of suppressing religious belief and cracking down on the Church of Almighty God. It can be seen that the CCP has stretched its evil hand to South Korea to suppress religious belief.
Surely Zhang’s wife knows that the CCP persecutes Christians brutally, and Zhang will be arrested, abused, or even imprisoned and tortured if he returns to China. Yet, she still threatened him with her death and forced him to return, and even claimed that she didn’t care if Zhang would be arrested, put into prison, or be badly maimed. Will a woman with normal mind do such a thing to her husband? Will a woman do such a thing if she sincerely loves her husband and her family? Tian knows very well why Zhang doesn’t want to see her, and she further knows that her protest will only make the situation get worse and deteriorate, and thus put her husband in a more dangerous situation. However, she still repeatedly comes to South Korea and makes troubles. It can be seen clearly that her real purpose is not for Zhang to go back to China and live with her, or for a family reunion; rather, she aims to deliver Zhang to the CCP. She has totally been brainwashed, bought off, and controlled by the CCP, and become its tool and pawn to persecute the Church of Almighty God and suppress freedom of religious belief. Actually, the CCP is the chief conspirator and manipulator behind this drama.
The CCP defames and attacks the Church of Almighty God, saying that the Church coerces the believers and is a destroyer of family. This is definitely a slander and frame-up of the CCP. The CCP wantonly suppresses religious belief in Mainland China. Therefore, Zhang escaped to South Korea to seek refuge in order to protect himself from the persecution and the danger of arrest. This is proper for a Christian, and it is also in accordance with , with the teaching of the . The Lord Jesus once told His disciples: “But when they persecute you in this city, flee you into another” (Matthew 10:23). Moreover, the international refugee law mentions that one can go to another country to seek asylum from religious persecution. Therefore, it’s justified that Zhang came to South Korea to seek asylum, and it’s in line with the Bible, with the international law. Besides, in South Korea, Zhang has never done anything against the law, but only does what a Christian should do—spreading the kingdom . This is the same with the situation where the disciples of the Lord Jesus continued to spread His gospel after fleeing to other countries because of persecution. In the Bible, the Lord Jesus said: “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” (Luke 14:26). “So likewise, whoever he be of you that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:33). Throughout the ages, numerous saints accepted God’s call and commission. They gave up their families and jobs and ran hither and yon to spread the Lord Jesus’ gospel. They had been through sufferings and hardships, and even imprisoned or killed, losing their lives, like Peter, John, and James. In modern times, James Hudson Taylor and other missionaries set a precedent as well. According to the CCP, didn’t these saints, who forsook all for spreading the Lord’s gospel, also break their families and abandon them? In Christians’ eyes, it’s a bounden duty for them to spend for God and spread the gospel to testify to God; surely it is a positive thing. People who are able to do such things are recognized and admired by others, and are worthy of emulating. Whereas, the CCP defines this positive thing as discarding family; it is totally wrong! It can be seen that the CCP is exactly the evil and reactionary force that is hostile toward the positive things; and it is the source and creator of all the negative and evil things in the world. What the CCP supports and advocates are absolutely negative things, are opposition to God; and what the CCP resists or wantonly destroys are usually positive things. That which stands by the side of the CCP, speaks for the CCP, and supports what the CCP does, is definitely the evil force that hates God like the CCP.
Presently, Zhang has expressly stated that he came to South Korea out of sheer willingness, with the only purpose of seeking asylum and avoiding the CCP’s persecution. In order to repay , he is preaching the gospel and testifying to God. It is nothing more than the duty and obligation of a Christian, and no one has ever forced or controlled him to do so.
The five old women, each of whom held a sign for protest during this drama, are allegedly Korean Chinese. From start to finish, they expressed no violent words or actions. It is highly possible that they were bought off by the CCP. Therefore, what they did cannot represent the religious community in South Korea. To buy off someone is the CCP’s traditional practice to achieve a certain purpose, so it is nothing special. For example, each time when the CCP leaders visit another country, they will hire some Chinese for a welcome ceremony, at the price of about 100 dollars per day for each person. Besides, there are also many times when the CCP bribes some of the foreign congressmen to serve its purpose. Obviously, bribery has become the CCP’s consistent means for its own ignoble ends. This fact is no longer a secret. It remains unknown how much money the CCP gave Wu, Tian, and other participants of this drama, but this performance staged at the gate of the Church of Almighty God was actually planned by the CCP—of this there is no doubt. Before this drama, Wu kept spreading those lies and fallacies from the CCP to slander and condemn the Church of Almighty God, and she repeatedly tried to incite the religious community in South Korea to resist the Church. Fortunately, the majority of the religious community in South Korea have their ideas, their conscience, and can think for themselves. Moreover, they show respect for the fact. For this cause, they have not been deceived by Wu, in other words, deceived by the CCP. This is something gratifying.
Up to now, everything has become clear. This protest was organized by the CCP—the mastermind behind the scene. Its real motive is to defame and smear the Church of Almighty God. Not only does it persecute the Church in China, but it reaches its evil hand to South Korea, somewhere other than China, trying to continue its crime of suppressing religious belief and even interfere religious belief in South Korea. It is believed that the Korean government and its people, who uphold freedom and democracy, are unwilling to see this scene, much less tolerate it.
The Church of Almighty God is legally registered in South Korea. Christians of the Church only testify to Almighty God and proclaim the words expressed by Almighty God, of . They didn’t violate any Korean laws; they are a group of Christians who abide by the laws and respect the local tradition and culture. Their actions follow the teachings of the Bible and fall within the scope of laws. The Church of Almighty God has no dealings or disputes with those protesters; it doesn’t know them, nor has it done anything that harms their interests. Why do they protest against the Church of Almighty God? What evidence do they get to accuse the Church of breaking the laws? Do they know about the Church of Almighty God? Could they give any examples to show that the Church of Almighty God did something that goes against the Bible? Is there any basis of their condemnation? Could they disclose the truth to the public? Isn’t it fairly ridiculous and stupid for them to put up signs and condemn the Church of Almighty God after believing rumors created by the CCP without any evidence?
At last, I hope that people from all walks of life can see through to the truth behind this protest and the conspiracy of the CCP government. The CCP has always been hostile to God, tried every possible means to disturb and demolish the work of God, and afflict God’s chosen people. It is truly the most evil and reactionary force in the world. Nowadays, the CCP is stretching its evil hand to the overseas countries to suppress the religious belief. Its evil deeds will definitely provoke God’s wrath. The CCP’s doom day is at the corner and it will soon fall under the wrath of God! Just as Almighty God says: “We trust that no country or power can stand in the way of what God wishes to achieve. Those that obstruct God’s work, resist the word of God, disturb and impair the plan of God shall ultimately be punished by God. He who defies the work of God shall be sent to hell; any country that defies the work of God shall be destroyed; any nation that rises up to oppose the work of God shall be wiped from this earth, and shall cease to exist.” (from The Word Appears in the Flesh)
