We are followers of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He is the way, the truth
and the life. The only way to God. Most of us are evangelical Christians,
for whom the Bible is the highest authority in our lives. We are convinced
that the Bible should never be changed, only translated as closely as possible
to the original manuscripts. It's the Word of God.
Some groups of people, however,
have changed the Bible by either taking away scripture or adding text. Some
groups mislead by adding footnotes in their Bible versions, that not only refer
to other parts of Scripture, but also include false doctrine. Those
groups mislead people and present a wrong view of who God is and what He
has done for mankind.
Therefore we need to warn
international students against those quasi-Christian cults.

The first two movements listed below are the most dangerous deceiving movements, that are
active among Chinese students.
These people of the Watchtower Society
meeting in their Kingdom
a doctrine based on their own (sometimes inaccurate) Bible translation, which
concern is their interpretation of the diety of Jesus. They claim that Jesus
has NOT the same authority as God has. Because of that interpretation based
on false translation, they miss the crucial point of salvation through Jesus.

A sharp analysis of the Jehovah's Witnesses sectarian doctrine can be found
in John Ankerberg's book The Facts on Jehovah's Witnesses (2008). We recommend
you to read this
whenever you are or have been in contact with people
of Jehovah's Witnesses, who are no Christians.
Church of the Almighty God/Eastern Lightning
This Chinese cult is dangerous. Not only in China they try to deceive people
with their ideas about a female Christ and that the Bible is no more relevant,
but also abroad in the United States and elsewhere.

Chinese be aware! Don't
trap into such a group. Read here
their false teaching.
The Lord's Recovery/Local Church
This movement denigrates evangelical Christian denominations
and organizations. Only people of the Local Church movement
can be saved. The exclusivism of the Local Church divides the true Body of
Christ and is therefore contrary to the Bible. They follow the doctrine of
late Chinese preacher Witness Lee and they use their own Bible, called the
of the Bible, which is loaded with footnotes to impose their doctrine on

This group publishes their materials through an organization, called
Living Stream Ministry. A analysis of their doctrine is
