92. The Principles of the Church Being Separated Into Group A and Group B

1. You must separate people into Group A and Group B according to whether or not they pursue the truth, whether or not they have the work of the Holy Spirit, whether their humanity is good or bad, and whether or not they cause disturbances in the church;

2. You must separate the “10 types of people” as mentioned in work arrangements into Group B, to give them the opportunity to repent and change;

3. Those with serious problems, special problems and those with whom you are temporarily unable to penetrate or define the essence of their problems, should all be placed in Group B;

6. Principles for Accurately Dividing People into Group A and Group B for Meetings

The three principles for dividing people into Group A and Group B for meetings are: 1. whether one pursues the truth and has the work of the Holy Spirit; 2. whether one’s humanity is good or bad, and whether or not they are a wicked person; 3. whether one often disturbs the church, and how much evil they have done. Churches everywhere must divide people into Group A and Group B for meetings in accordance with these three principles.

People are divided into Group A and Group B for meetings so that those who pursue the truth and those who don’t pursue the truth won’t interfere with each other and can walk their own paths. This satisfies both sides, and is absolutely beneficial and imperative to guaranteeing that all those among God’s chosen people who genuinely believe in God and pursue the truth can enter the right track of belief in God.

Dividing people into Group A and Group B for meetings also needs to be based on the work arrangement of August 15, which stipulates that the ten types of people who should be segregated and expelled can be put in Group B for meetings. Even if they appear to confess and repent, false leaders and false workers who commit all manner of evil and bring serious chaos to the church’s work must be put in Group B for meetings because it cannot be verified that they have genuinely repented. False leaders and false workers who are replaced for doing evil and disrupting the church’s work in the future should also be put in Group B for meetings.

Leaders or workers with relatively good humanity who are replaced because they are not suitable must be put into Group A for meetings. Leaders or workers with relatively good humanity who are replaced or resign for not having the work of the Holy Spirit or not being able to do actual work should be put in Group A for meetings as long as they haven’t committed any obvious evil deeds and moreover haven’t aroused public outrage. Only doing so is fair and reasonable. In addition, all those who have bad humanity, often disrupt church life, spread fallacies, negativity, notions and rumors, and like to create disturbances and follow others in kicking up a fuss must be placed in Group B for meetings. Such practice is completely fair and reasonable.

People who have security risks because they have been sold out or are being monitored should attend meetings with others in the same type of situation. Those in other special situations should also attend meetings separately for the sake of safety (they are still considered to be in Group A). It is hoped that everyone can be understanding as such practice is of benefit to the church’s safety.

A person in Group B who truly repents and can fellowship about the reality of the truth after attending meetings for a year or two may be accepted into Group A for meetings. During elections, a person in Group B may only run for Group B team leader or the person responsible for evangelism in Group B. People in Group B are not qualified to run for church leader or deacon. Anyone in Group B meetings who disrupts or makes trouble out of nothing again may be expelled.

Group A and Group B must not hold meetings together. If that happens, God’s chosen people will never have a day of peace and there won’t be good church life in the church. This is a generally accepted fact.

People with strange problems who cannot be seen through should be allocated to a group based on whether their humanity is good or bad and whether or not they love the truth. A person must not be expelled if it is not clear whether they have the work of evil spirits or are possessed by ghosts. Such individuals may only be put in Group B for meetings to be observed until things are clear.

from “Twenty Problems That Must Be Resolved When the Church’s Work Embarks on the Right Track” in Selected Annals of the Work Arrangements of The Church of Almighty God

Now, we can say with certainty that the following ten types of people will never attain salvation:

One, unbelievers who never practice the truth, do not fulfill their duties, and do no good deeds will never attain salvation.

Two, false leaders, false workers, and the wicked who commit much wickedness must be punished, and will never attain salvation.

Three, those who often harbor notions about God’s work or often harbor enmity toward the man used by the Holy Spirit will never attain salvation.

Four, any who steal God’s offerings or, for any reason or excuse, embezzle God’s offering for themselves will never attain salvation.

Five, any who understand none of the truth and can be deceived and controlled by evil spirits and the wicked at any time will never attain salvation.

Six, any who follow and worship false leaders or antichrists, and who often follow the wicked in making trouble will never attain salvation.

Seven, any who do not obey the leadership and shepherding of the man used by the Holy Spirit, those who are outside of the stream of the Holy Spirit, will never attain salvation.

Eight, unreasonable people who are especially deceitful or vicious, or who often cause trouble, hassle, or disturb the church will never attain salvation.

Nine, any who sell out the church, betray God, and become accomplices and lackeys of the great red dragon will never attain salvation.

Ten, any who are especially absurd, confused, do not understand truth, and do not know God’s work at all will never attain salvation.

God’s chosen people must have discernment regarding the preceding ten types of people who will never attain salvation, and the church must deal with these ten types of people by isolating or expelling them. These ten types of people are unqualified to be a church leader or worker at any level. If a person belongs to any of these ten categories and cannot achieve true repentance within half a year, the church must expel them. They may only be retained if they are willing to preach the gospel, but they must be placed in Group B for meetings. None of these ten types of people are qualified to stand as candidates in elections for leader or worker positions. By gaining more people through the gospel preaching or doing more good deeds, they may, perhaps, atone for their sins. This is the only way out for these ten types of people. These ten types of people must be sent to Group B for meetings. They must never be allowed in Group A for meetings.

from “How to Treat and Solve the Chaos in the Churches” in Selected Annals of the Work Arrangements of The Church of Almighty God

Each church must divide its congregations into A and B groups as quickly as possible. Any church must do this. The division of groups A and B must be based on the principles stipulated in the work arrangements. The main purpose is to put the ten kinds of people in group B and give them opportunities to repent. If they show true repentance in group B, actively do their duties without complaints and obey God’s work, then they will be admitted into group A. If any one of the people who are put in group A often disturbs the church life and makes trouble willfully, he can be transferred to group B at any time, but it must be passed by more than half of the church members. The division of groups A and B is to be first determined by the church leaders and deacons, and then passed by the church. For those who have serious or special problems, if they cannot be discerned for the time being, and the nature of the problems cannot be determined, they should be kept in Group B for congregation. Those who are elected as leaders and deacons in the church, and those who perform special duties, must be put in group A for congregation regardless of humanity. Professional gospel preachers must congregate in the gospel preaching group. They should never return to the church for congregation.
