1014 God Saves Man to the Utmost Limit
1 God did not come this time to strike people down, but rather to save people to the greatest extent possible. Who is entirely free of error? If everyone were struck down, then how could it be called “salvation”? Some transgressions are done on purpose, while others are done involuntarily. With involuntary matters, if you can change after you recognize them, would God strike you down before you changed? Can God save people that way? Regardless of whether you transgress involuntarily or out of a rebellious nature, you must remember: Afterward, you must hurry up and wake up to reality, and press onward; no matter what situation arises, you must press onward.
2 The work God is doing is that of salvation, and He will not casually strike down the people He wants to save. Regardless of the degree to which you are capable of transforming, even if God struck you down in the end, He would certainly do it in righteousness; and when the time came, He would make you understand. Right now, you should care about striving for the truth, focusing on life entry, and seeking to fulfill your duty. There is no mistake in this! Ultimately, no matter how God treats you, it is always done in righteousness; you should not doubt this and do not need to worry. Even if you cannot understand God’s righteousness at the moment, there will come a day when you will be convinced.
