One Hundred Questions on Investigating the True Way

1Why should mankind believe in God?
2Why is the world so dark and wicked? With mankind being at the height of corruption, should it be destroyed?
3In my view, any of the religions teach mankind to be good. Does that mean that no matter which religion mankind follows, as long as they are sincere and commit no evil deeds they will achieve salvation?
4Buddhists and Taoists have religious practices wherein they separate themselves from worldly affairs and practice asceticism, can that achieve salvation?
5People often say, “Virtue has its reward, evil its retribution,” then why doesn’t God eliminate all the evil people?
6Can we achieve salvation if we don’t believe in God, but instead act virtuous, do good works, and do no evil deeds?
7Many people say, “When heaven falls everyone shall die.” So when disasters befall, will believers in God really be spared from death?
8Why must people who believe in God pray, gather, and read God’s word to attain new life?
9Since God loves mankind, why does He send down disasters to destroy all evil people who deny and resist Him?
10Some people say that there is no God at all; how is this viewpoint wrong? How should we confirm that God exists?
11I believe that God exists, but I am young and still have so much to do in life. Can I still achieve salvation if I wait until I am less busy to believe in Him?
12How do God’s three stages of work gradually deepen to bring mankind salvation?
13We believe that when the Lord returns, man will be changed into a holy body in the blink of an eye, so why in the last days must God undertake judgment and cleansing work?
14For those who have believed in the Lord Jesus for many years and have fervently expended themselves and worked tirelessly, they have suffered a lot for the Lord. Could it be that by not accepting Almighty God’s work in the last days they would be denied salvation and entry into the kingdom of heaven?
15Since God is righteous, why is it that evil people prosper in comfort while good people are bullied and oppressed and suffer hardships?
16Will believing in Almighty God really allow someone to not perish and have everlasting life?
17The Lord Jesus is a merciful and loving God. As long as we uphold the name of the Lord Jesus and keep His way, we believe that when He returns, He won’t abandon us, and we will be directly raptured into the kingdom of heaven.
18Some people have said, “If we keep the way of the Lord Jesus and conduct ourselves in accordance with His requirements, if we are humble and patient, love our enemies, bear the cross, subdue our body, preach and do work for the Lord and witness Him, if we strive in these things, we will become holy.” Why is it wrong to say this?
19God is forever unchanging, so why would the Lord Jesus change His name to Almighty God?
20Isn’t belief in Almighty God a betrayal of the Lord Jesus? Isn’t this apostasy?
21We have been forgiven our sins and justified through faith in the Lord, and furthermore, we have given up many things, expended ourselves, and labored tirelessly for the Lord. I believe this type of faith will allow us to be raptured into the kingdom of heaven. Why do you say that this won’t gain us entry into the heavenly kingdom?
22In all these years through my faith in the Lord I have received many blessings and been cured from illness. So if I were to have faith in Almighty God, wouldn’t that show a lack of conscience?
23If I already have faith in the Lord Jesus, why do I have to have faith in Almighty God to achieve salvation?
24Since the Lord Jesus and Almighty God are the same God, isn’t just believing in Jesus enough to be saved?
25Our sins were forgiven after believing in the Lord, but we still often sin; how can we finally escape the bondage of sin?
26When the Lord Jesus was crucified He said, “It is finished,” which shows that God’s salvation work for mankind was complete. So how can you say that God has done a further stage of work to judge, cleanse, and save mankind?
27We believe that when the Lord was nailed to the cross, He bore and forgave our sins. Therefore, we have already been distinguished as holy and are no longer of sin, and we do not have to accept God’s judgment and cleansing work of the last days. Why is it wrong to say this?
28The Lord Jesus performed His redemption work in the Age of Grace and in the last days Almighty God does His work of judgment. How do we recognize that the judgment work of the last days and the redemption work of the Age of Grace are from one God?
29The Lord Jesus has promised us that, “whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” How will God accomplish what He has said?
30When Jesus performed His work, He healed the sick, drove out demons, and performed signs and miracles. Why doesn’t Almighty God perform signs and wonders in His work?
31You have said that the Lord Jesus has already come, but we don’t believe it. We have had faith in the Lord for many years and have always toiled tirelessly for Him. When the Lord comes He should first reveal it to us. Since the Lord has not revealed it to us, that just shows us that He hasn’t returned. What is wrong with this belief?
32In the past, I have so resisted and condemned Almighty God’s work and I have said blasphemous things; will God still save me?
33In the Bible it says, there is none other name under heaven given among men, the only Savior is Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. But today why do you believe in Almighty God?
34In the Bible it says, “this same Jesus … shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.” When the Lord returns, it shall be with Him riding on a white cloud, why would He become flesh?
35Why is it that The Church of Almighty God prospers more and more while the churches of the Age of Grace are so desolate?
36The world has several major religions and they each say that theirs is the true God, so how does one actually confirm which God is the only true God?
37How does one distinguish between the work of God and the work of man?
38How does one actually confirm that Almighty God is the returned Jesus?
39Each sect within the religious world believes that their way is the true way, so how does one distinguish the true way from false ways?
40In the face of the new work God has performed in the last days, how should we seek to confirm that this is the true way?
41Why does God perform new work in each age? For what reasons exactly does a new age come about?
42The religious community began resisting Christ in the flesh in the Age of Grace, so why has Christ always been resisted and condemned by the religious community?
43What is the reason behind the religious community’s frantic resistance against and effort to condemn God’s new work in each age? What is the root?
44Does the judgment of the last days mentioned in the Bible refer to Almighty God’s work in the last days?
45Why does God judge and chastise corrupt mankind in His work of the last days?
46What is the difference between the redemption work of the Age of Grace and the judgment work of the Age of Kingdom? Why must one accept the judgment work of the last days before achieving salvation?
47If the Eastern Lightning is the true way, why has the CCP government consistently engaged in frantic oppression, arrests, and persecution against the Eastern Lightning?
48If Almighty God’s work in the last days is the true way, why don’t those church elders, pastors, and priests accept it?
49In the last days, God has already begun His new work. Why is it that people who cannot keep up with God’s new work and remain in a church of the Age of Grace won’t be able to achieve salvation?
50We obey and submit to the pastors and elders in everything, is this the same as submitting to God? Is belief in God in this manner a way to achieve salvation?
51Why will some people who have just accepted God’s work of the last days be disturbed by Satan and evil spirits?
52You have said that God has come, but we don’t dare believe it because the Bible says, “Then if any man shall say to you, See, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Mat 24:23-24). How do we actually distinguish the true Christ from false Christs?
53In the Bible’s Book of Revelation it says, “If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” (Rev 22:18-19). What is the relationship between God’s work of the last days and the prophecies of the Book of Revelation? Does God’s work fulfill all of the prophecies of Revelation?
54There are many people that believe that despite the Bible being written by man, all of the words come from the Holy Spirit and are the words of God. Is this correct?
55How did the Bible take shape? What type of book is the Bible exactly?
56Why do people always use the Bible to define God? Why is it wrong if one constrains God within the Bible?
57What exactly is the relationship between God’s work and the Bible? Did God’s work come first or did the Bible come first?
58Some people, in their study of the Lord Jesus’ return, only base their studies on the Bible’s prophecies, but they do not seek to listen to God’s voice. What is the problem with this practice?
59Many people believe that believing in God means never straying from the Bible and that straying from the Bible means betraying God. Is this kind of view correct?
60Some people believe that faith in God must be based on the Bible, but can Bible-based faith really achieve salvation?
61In one’s faith in God one must not stray from the Bible; anything straying from the Bible is fake and heretical. Is this tenable?
62There are indeed many places in the Bible that prophesy God’s work of the last days. We would like to know regarding Almighty God’s appearance and His work: How does this fulfill and achieve those prophecies?
63The Bible says that all scripture is given by inspiration of God, then why do you say that the Bible isn’t fully the words of God?
64We feel that all of God’s words are in the Bible and that anything outside of the Bible does not contain God’s revelations or words. Why is this type of statement wrong?
65Regarding the Lord’s return, the Bible very clearly records, “But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father” (Mak 13:32). If you are saying that the Lord Jesus has already returned, how would you know?
66The Lord Jesus said that He will return, and what will be the manner of His return?
67Why does the Lord’s return involve incarnation—descending in secret—as well as publicly descending from the clouds?
68Why does the Lord’s return involve Him becoming flesh as the Son of man to reveal Himself to mankind?
69Why doesn’t the Lord’s return in the last days involve appearing to man and doing His work in a spiritual body?
70Why isn’t God’s work in the last days done through people used by God? Why must He do it personally in the flesh?
71In God’s appearing in the flesh, why doesn’t He appear as a great or imposing image?
72Why has God been incarnated as a female in the last days? What is the significance of this?
73When God became flesh in the Age of Grace it was in the image of a Jewish man, so why has God of the last days appeared as an Asian person?
74Why isn’t God’s work in the last days done through the means of the Spirit? Why has God come to do His work in the flesh?
75Exactly what work will Jesus do when He returns?
76In Almighty God’s judgment work in the last days, how does He make all denominations become one?
77How should believers distinguish God’s voice to confirm that it is the true way?
78In God’s work of the last days, why does He issue forth so many words of judgment and chastisement?
79Almighty God’s words include judgment, chastisement, and disclosure, and His words indeed carry majesty and wrath, but don’t they lack mercy and love?
80Having read Almighty God’s words, I feel that they are predominantly the voice of God, and God is talking. But it seems that some words are like the words of man. How could this be?
81We are all caught living in a cycle of sinning and confessing with no way to escape; can the words of Almighty God truly change and cleanse mankind?
82Why is it said that all of the Lord Jesus’ prophecies have been fulfilled and achieved through the work of Almighty God in the last days?
83Why is it that salvation is only possible through believing in Almighty God and accepting God’s work in the last days?
84Why did God secretly descend to China to do His work of the last days? What is the meaning behind this?
85Why is God’s work of the last days done in China and not Israel?
86Why does God’s work only save good people and not evil people?
87Since Satan and evil spirits have corrupted mankind into living, filthy demons, why didn’t God destroy them early on?
88God’s work in the Age of Grace lasted 2,000 years, and how long will it take for God’s work of the last days to usher out the old age and establish a new heaven and earth?
89If we have faith in Almighty God with a true heart, continue gathering, read His word, actively perform our duty, and follow Him to the end, is that enough to achieve salvation?
90What is a genuine church life? How should one live the church life to gain understanding of the truth and growth in life?
91How should one submit to and experience God’s work of the last days in order to achieve salvation?
92How should one accept and submit to God’s judgment and chastisement as well as His pruning and dealing to truly submit to God’s work?
93What exactly must one do to achieve understanding of the truth and gain the truth?
94Why is it that believers must pursue the truth to achieve salvation and be perfected?
95What exactly is the connection between doing one’s duty and pursuing the truth? What does doing one’s duty have to do with achieving salvation?
96Why must believers accept God’s trial and refinement in addition to His judgment and chastisement?
97Why does accepting God’s salvation and perfection require enduring so many hardships?
98Why must believers do so many good deeds in order to have a good destination?
99What exactly are mankind’s destination and the beautiful scenes of the kingdom like? Which of God’s words attest to this?
