What Is the True Christianity?

By An Yuan, Philippines

There are so many churches nowadays, so which one is the true Christian church? This question is a quandary for many Christians. Let’s fellowship about this question today.

What constitutes true Christianity?

In order to understand what constitutes true Christianity, we must first know the origin of Christianity. The genesis of Christianity is closely related to the work of the Lord Jesus. Two thousand years ago, in light of mankind’s need, God personally incarnated as the Son of man and named Himself as Jesus, beginning the Age of Grace and preaching the gospel of the kingdom of heaven to man.The Lord Jesus was crucified and redeemed all mankind After the Lord Jesus was resurrected and returned to heaven, the disciples who followed Him began to broadly spread the gospel. As a result, more and more people followed the Lord Jesus, and a growing number of churches came into existence. The Lord Jesus was God incarnate, the Christ, so the churches that believed in the Lord Jesus thus became known as Christianity. That is to say, Christianity has its roots in the appearance and work of God incarnate and is made up of those who believe in Christ. This is the origin of Christianity.

True Christianity is ruled by Christ, the Holy Spirit; the truth wields power. The followers of Christ all magnify Christ, don’t worship or follow any man. They read God’s new words, experience God’s new work, walk the path of fearing God and shunning evil. Such a church has the work of the Holy Spirit and is the real Christian church. For example, in the Age of Grace, when the Lord Jesus concluded the old age and brought new work, Peter, Nathanael, John and other disciples all followed God’s footsteps, received the watering and sustenance of God, and obtained the work of the Holy Spirit. They were led by God as the shepherd, and they were those who attended gatherings in a true church. Whereas the Pharisees who refused to follow God’s footsteps held onto the outdated words of the Bible and refused to make any further progress. They were bereft of the work of the Holy Spirit and even resisted God’s new work. The assembly of them could be only called religious groups, not Christianity that followed Christ.

Now we have understood what Christianity is. Maybe someone is wondering whether The Church of Almighty God is a part of Christianity since it is becoming more and more prosperous and many people from every denomination have turned to Almighty God.

Is The Church of Almighty God a part of Christianity?

In order to figure this out, let’s first determine whether Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus. Two thousand years ago, the Lord Jesus promised that He would return. Now is the last days, disasters are occurring frequently, and the state of the world is in turmoil. The prophecies of the Lord Jesus’ return have basically been fulfilled. It stands to reason that the Lord has already returned. The Lord Jesus had prophesied, “For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:27). “Be you therefore ready also: for the Son of man comes at an hour when you think not” (Luke 12:40). “And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last” (Revelation 22:12-13). He also had said, “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd” (John 10:16). “I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth” (John 16:12-13). “The Son of man comes” and “the coming of the Son of man” spoken by the Lord Jesus are all referring to God incarnate in the last days. Only God in the flesh can be called the Son of man. Clearly, the Lord Jesus would return in the flesh in the last days, and appear to man through His identity as Christ. What’s more, He shall speak new words and perform new work when He comes back. Almighty God’s appearance and work have fulfilled the Lord Jesus’ prophecies. On the foundation of the Lord Jesus’ work of redemption, Almighty God does His work of judgment beginning in God’s family and He expresses the entire truth that will enable man to be purified and to attain salvation. He has revealed the truths which concern God’s own management work, such as the purpose and significance of God’s three stages of work, the mystery of God’s incarnation, God’s work of judgment in the last days and mankind’s final destination; His words reveal the corrupt essence and the source of corruption of all mankind, and the corrupt dispositions even mankind themselves don’t realize they have within their hearts and minds. Man becomes convinced in heart and by word once they read these words. At the same time, the words of Almighty God show man the path to cast off Satan’s dark influences and attain salvation and be purified, and they tell man all the truths that they should practice and enter into in their belief in God, including how to become an honest person, how to love and obey God, how to fear God and shun evil, how to serve God, how to live out a normal humanity, and so on. All of these are the truths we couldn’t bear in the Age of Grace because our statue was small, as God mentioned. In the last days, Almighty God has told us all of these truths. After investigating Almighty God’s words, many people from various denominations in the world have become certain that Almighty God is the Lord Jesus returned. They then left their former churches and follow God’s new work. They rid themselves of the barrenness in their spirits, gain the work of the Holy spirit, receive the watering and supply of the living water of life. This proves that Almighty God is the incarnation of God, Christ of the last days, the returned Lord Jesus, because only Christ can give man the truth, the way and the life. All those that believe in Christ belong to Christianity. The Lord Jesus and Almighty God are the names of God’s two incarnations, They are one God, and so The Church of Almighty God naturally belongs within Christianity.

The Church of Almighty God and Christianity believe in one God, the one true God who created all things in heaven and on earth. The difference between them is that The Church of Almighty God and Christianity are churches that arose from the work of God in different ages. Christianity is the Christian church of the Age of Grace, and they believe in the Lord Jesus, the first Christ. They hold to God’s work of redemption in the Age of Grace and they practice that which the Lord Jesus required of man in the Age of Grace; The Church of Almighty God is the Christian church of the Age of Kingdom, they accept the work of judgment in the last days performed by the returned Lord Jesus, Almighty God, they pray to the new name taken by God in the Age of Kingdom, they accept the watering and supply given by Christ of the last days Himself, and they read the new utterances of God in the last days. Hence, those in the last days who believe in the Lord Jesus are holding onto the Christianity of a bygone era; only The Church of Almighty God that believes in Christ of the last days, is the more realistic Christianity and keeps up with the Lamb’s footsteps.
