170 Pursuing the Truth Is So Meaningful
1 People have been too profoundly corrupted by Satan, they lack any human semblance. Arrogance, deceitfulness, selfishness, ignobility—these are all the faces of Satan. As people have the nature of Satan, they must accept God’s judgment. For corrupt mankind to be judged is an unalterable law of Heaven and earth. Only when they gain the truth and the life, can there be a change in their disposition. Loving the truth is key to entering into life. Entry into reality is only through understanding and practicing the truth. To be able to truly love God and obey God are the most important things.
2 Experiencing the judgment of God’s words allowed me to know myself. By being arrogant and conceited and seeking blessings, my corruption was exposed. I lied and cheated, I was crooked and deceitful, yet still thought so much of myself. I was corrupted so deeply that I seemed no longer human, and still I wanted blessings. God’s judgment shows He is righteous and holy. Those who do not undergo judgment and purification will fall into the disasters. God’s judgment and chastisement cleansed and saved me. My life disposition has begun to change and I praise God in my heart.
3 Christ of the last days brings the way of everlasting life. The value and significance of the truth is unfathomable to all. Life cannot be gained without experiencing God’s judgment and chastisement. A meaningful existence comes from faith in God, and pursuit of the truth and the life. True human life is only through gaining the truth. God determines people’s ends based on whether they possess the truth. God’s actions are entirely righteous, and should not be doubted by man. The great catastrophe shall destroy all that is of Satan. Those who have gained the truth shall forever remain in God’s kingdom.
