Eastern lightning has spread into Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan (places of intense historical Western domination), and even outside of China, leaving genuine Chinese Christians fighting to retain their correct theological pathway and self-determination. This has led to many genuine Chinese groups to issue statements to their followers about being on the alert against the presence of the Almighty God Church Cult. The Hong Kong press has reported local (genuine) Christians discussing the news that the head of the Almighty Church Cult on the island has received offers of funding from the US (Obama) Government to establish a radio station for broadcasting Eastern Lightning propaganda far and wide. This is a significant event, as the US is contradicting the true Christian Authorities in the world by backing a dangerous religious cult simply because it strives to ‘Destroy the “Red Dragon” (i.e. ‘Communist Party’) and build the Church of Almighty God’ in its place! Although founded in the early 1990’s in Henan, Eastern Lightning believes that Jesus Christ has been re-born in the body of Yang Xiangbai – the wife of cult-founder Zhao Weishan – it has originally (locally) banned in 1991, before being banned nationwide in China in 1995. Its false propaganda has had some limited success amongst the vulnerable and the poorly educated, but has also deceived a small number of educated people.
Poland became independent from Russia not because of any great victories on the battlefield, but rather because Lenin thought it prudent to break-up the old Russian empire and let the ordinary people chose for themselves.
