Eastern Lightning|Question (3) The government has labeled the “Eastern Lightning” as an illegal cult. This crackdown is severe now. You can’t believe any more, or you’ll be asking for trouble.

The government has labeled the “Eastern Lightning” as an illegal cult. This crackdown is severe now. You can’t believe any more, or you’ll be asking for trouble.

Answer: The CCP are atheists. No one opposes God or hates the truth more than them. They’ve designated all churches and groups that believe in the true God as illegal cults. Also, they’ve openly labeled the Bible as a cult book. This is public knowledge. Besides, we’ve suffered so much persecution over the years, just for believing in Jesus. Many preachers and Christians have been tortured to death or jailed. That’s not enough? How can man still believe the government’s rumors? How should a good religion be distinguished from cults? A party or an individual shouldn’t decide that at will. And neither should a country or a constitution. A good religion is positive and benefits mankind. But cults are negative things. They corrupt mankind. If people want to know if it’s a good religion or a cult, they should look at whether it’s positive or negative. If it comes from God or God’s work, a church like that is the true way, a good religion. And what comes from Satan or the work of evil spirits are evil cults. The CCP is a satanic regime. It opposes God and hates the truth the most. The CCP is the real cult. They aren’t qualified to comment on faith, much less qualified to condemn any groups or churches that believe in God.
