The Most Fundamental Practice of Being an Honest Person (Part Two)

That God asks for people to be honest proves that He truly loathes and dislikes deceitful people. God’s dislike of deceitful people is a dislike of their way of doing things, their dispositions, their intents and their methods of trickery; God dislikes all of these things. If deceitful people are able to accept the truth, admit to their deceitful dispositions, and are willing to accept God’s salvation, then they too have a hope of being saved—for God treats all people equally, as does the truth. And so, if we wish to become people who please God, the first thing we must do is change our principles of comportment. No longer can we live according to satanic philosophies, no longer can we get by on lies and trickery. We must cast off all our lies and become honest people. Then God’s view of us will change. Previously, people always relied on lies, pretense, and trickery while living among others, and used satanic philosophies as the basis of their existence, their lives, and the foundation for their comportment. This was something that God loathed. Among nonbelievers, if you speak frankly, tell the truth, and are an honest person, then you will be slandered, judged, and forsaken. So you follow worldly trends and live by satanic philosophies; you become more and more skilled at lying, and more and more deceitful. You also learn to use insidious means to achieve your goals and protect yourself. You become more and more prosperous in Satan’s world, and as a result, you fall deeper and deeper into sin until you cannot extricate yourself. In God’s house, things are precisely the opposite. The more you lie and play deceitful games, the more God’s chosen people will become sick of you and forsake you. If you refuse to repent and still cling to satanic philosophies and logic, if you use ploys and elaborate schemes to disguise and package yourself, then you are very likely to be revealed and eliminated. This is because God loathes deceitful people. Only honest people can prosper in God’s house, and deceitful people will eventually be forsaken and eliminated. All of this is preordained by God. Only honest people can have a share in the kingdom of heaven. If you do not try to be an honest person, and if you don’t experience and practice in the direction of pursuing the truth, if you don’t expose your own ugliness, and if you don’t lay yourself bare, then you will never be able to receive the Holy Spirit’s work and gain God’s approval. No matter what you do or what duty you perform, you must have an honest attitude. Without an honest attitude, you cannot perform your duty well. If you always perform your duty in a perfunctory way, and you fail to do something well, then you should reflect on yourself, know yourself, and open up to dissect yourself. Then you should seek the truth principles and strive to do better next time, instead of being perfunctory. If you do not try and satisfy God with a heart that is honest, and always look to satisfy your own flesh, or your own pride, then will you be able to do a good job? Will you be able to perform your duty well? Certainly not. Those who are deceitful are always perfunctory when they perform their duty; whatever duty they are in, they do not do it well, and it’s hard for such people to attain salvation. Tell Me—when deceitful people put the truth into practice, do they engage in deceit? Putting the truth into practice requires them to pay a price, to relinquish their own interests, to open up and lay themselves bare to others. But they hold something back; when they speak, they only give half away, and hold on to the rest. Others always have to guess what they mean, and always have to connect the dots to work out their meaning. They always give themselves room to maneuver, they give themselves some wiggle room. When others notice that they are deceitful, they don’t want to have anything to do with them, and are put on their guard against them in anything they do. They lie and cheat and others can’t trust them, not knowing what is true and what is false in the things they say, or how adulterated those things are. They often go back on their word with others and people place no value on them in their hearts. Then what about in God’s heart? How does God see them? God detests them even more, because God scrutinizes the depths of people’s hearts. Humans can only see what’s on the surface, but God sees more accurately, more incisively, and more realistically.

No matter how long you’ve been a believer, what your duty is or what work you do, whether your caliber is high or low or your character is good or bad, as long as you can accept the truth and seek to become an honest person, you will certainly reap the rewards. Some people who do not seek to become an honest person think that doing their duty well is good enough. To them, I say, “You will never be able to do your duty well.” Others think that being an honest person is no big deal, that seeking to serve in accordance with God’s intentions is the bigger task, and that this is the only way to satisfy God. Then go ahead and give it a try—see if you can serve in accordance with God’s intentions without becoming an honest person. Others do not seek to become honest people, but are content to pray every day, go to gatherings on time, eat and drink God’s words, and just not live the way nonbelievers do. As long as they don’t break the law or do anything evil, that’s good enough. But can God be satisfied this way? How can you satisfy God if you’re not an honest person? If you’re not an honest person, then you’re not the right sort of person. If you’re not honest, then you are crooked and deceitful. You do things in a perfunctory way, reveal all sorts of corruption, and are unable to put the truth into practice even when you want to. Anything outside of being an honest person means that nothing is done well—you will have no way to achieve submission to God or to satisfy Him. How can you satisfy God in anything you do without an attitude of honesty? How can you satisfy God if you do your duty without an honest attitude? Could you do it properly? You always think of your own flesh and your own prospects, you always want to lessen the suffering of your flesh, to expend yourself less, to sacrifice less, to pay less of a price. You are always holding something back. This is a deceitful attitude. Some people are calculating even when it comes to expending themselves for God. They say: “I have to live comfortably in the future. What if God’s work never comes to an end? I can’t offer up one hundred percent of myself to Him; I don’t even know when the day of God will come. I need to be calculating, to make arrangements for my family life and my future before I expend myself for God.” Are there many people who think this way? What disposition is it when one is calculating and makes contingency plans for themselves? Are these people loyal to God? Are they honest people? Being calculating and making contingency plans is not of one heart with God. It is a deceitful disposition, and the people who do this are acting in deceit. The attitude with which they treat God is certainly not an honest one. Some people are afraid that, while interacting or associating with them, their brothers and sisters will see through to their problems and say they are of small stature, or look down on them. So when they speak, they always try to give the impression that they are very zealous, that they long for God, and that they are keen to practice the truth. But inside, they are actually terribly weak and negative. They pretend to be strong so that no one can see through them. This is also deceit. In short, in anything you do, whether in life or in the performance of a duty, if you engage in falsehood and pretense or use false appearances to mislead or deceive others and make them esteem and worship you, or not look down on you, this is all deceit. Some women adore their husbands, when in fact, their husbands are demons and disbelievers. Afraid that her brothers and sisters will say her affections are too strong, such a woman will be the first to say: “My husband is a demon.” But, in her heart, she says: “My husband is a good man.” The former is what she says with her mouth—but that is just for the others to hear, so they think she has discernment toward her husband. What she really means is: “Don’t bring this matter to light. I’ll express this view first so there’s no need for you to mention it. I’ve already exposed my husband as a demon, so that means I’ve let go of my affections and you won’t have anything to say about it.” Isn’t that being deceitful? Isn’t that a facade? If you do this then you are deceiving people and misleading them by putting up a front. You are playing games, playing tricks at every turn, so that what others see is your false image, not your true face. This is sinister; this is man’s deceitfulness. Since you’ve acknowledged that your husband is a demon, then why not divorce him? Why not reject that demon, that Satan? You say that your husband is a demon, but continue spending your life with him—this shows that you like demons. You say with your mouth that he is a demon, but you don’t admit that in your heart. This means that you are deceiving others, hoodwinking them. It also shows that you are in cahoots with demons, that you are shielding them. If you were someone who could practice the truth, you would divorce your husband as soon as you acknowledged that he was a demon. Then you could bear witness, and it would show you were drawing a clear line between you and the devil. But unfortunately, not only have you failed to draw that line, you are living out your days with a demon, and misleading the brothers and sisters with lies and trickery. This proves that you are of the same ilk as the devil, that you are another lying demon. They say a woman follows the man she marries, whether he be a cock or a dog. Since you married a demon and never turned your back on him, that proves that you are also a demon. You are of the devil, but you say that your husband is a demon to prove that you are of God—isn’t this a tactic of lying and deception? You are well aware of the truth, but still use such means to pull the wool over others’ eyes. This is insidious; this is deceitful. All those who are insidious and deceitful are demons through-and-through.

Everyone has a corrupt disposition. If you reflect on yourself, you’ll clearly see some states or practices in which you give others a false impression or act deceitfully; all of you have times when you put on an act or are hypocritical. Some people say: “Then why haven’t I noticed? I’m a guileless person. I’ve been bullied and swindled to no end in this world, and I’ve never once been deceitful. I just say whatever’s on my heart.” That still doesn’t prove that you’re an honest person. It’s possible you’re just unintelligent, or not very educated, or maybe you’re easily pushed around in groups, or maybe you’re an inept coward lacking wisdom in your actions, possessing few skills, and on a lower rung in society—it still doesn’t mean that you’re an honest person. An honest person is one who can accept the truth—not a pitiable wretch, a good-for-nothing, an idiot, or a guileless person. You should be able to discern these things, right? I often hear some people say: “I never tell lies—I’m always the one being lied to. I’m always getting pushed around by people out there. God said He lifts the needy up from the dunghill, and I am one of those people. This is God’s grace. God takes pity on people like us, guileless people who are not welcome in society. This truly is God’s mercy!” God saying He lifts the needy up from the dunghill does have a practical side to it. Although you can recognize that, it doesn’t prove that you’re an honest person. In fact, some people are just morons, idiots; they’re fools with absolutely no skills, low in caliber, and with no understanding of the truth. That kind of person has absolutely no connection to the honest people that God speaks of. It is the case that God lifts the needy up from the dunghill, but idiots and fools aren’t the ones being lifted. Your caliber is innately very low, and you are an idiot, a good-for-nothing, and even though you were born into a poor family and are a member of society’s lower class, you are still not a target for God’s salvation. Just because you’ve suffered a lot and endured discrimination in society, just because you’ve been pushed around and cheated by everyone, don’t think that makes you an honest person. If you think that, then you are sorely mistaken. Have you been holding on to any misunderstandings or distorted comprehensions of what an honest person is? Have you gained some clarity with this fellowship? Being an honest person isn’t like people think it is; it isn’t being a straight talker who refrains from equivocation. A person might naturally be very straightforward, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t engage in trickery or deceit. All corrupt humans have corrupt dispositions that are cheating and deceitful. When people live in this world, under Satan’s influence, governed and controlled by its force, it is impossible for them to be honest. They can only become ever more deceitful. Living amid a corrupt humankind, being an honest person certainly involves many difficulties. We are likely to be mocked, vilified, judged, even excluded and driven out by nonbelievers, devil kings, and living demons. So, is it possible to survive as an honest person in this world? Is there any room for us to survive in this world? Yes, there is. There is certainly room for us to survive. God has preordained and chosen us, and He surely opens up a way out for us. We believe in God and follow Him entirely under His guidance, and we live entirely by the breath and life He bestows. Because we have accepted the truth of God’s words, we have new rules for how to live, and new goals for our lives. The foundations of our lives have been changed. We have adopted a new way of living, a new way of comporting ourselves, entirely for the sake of gaining the truth and being saved. We have adopted a new mode of living: We live in order to perform our duties well and satisfy God. This has absolutely nothing to do with what we physically eat, what we wear, or where we live; it is our spiritual need. Many people feel that being an honest person is too difficult. One part of this is that casting off a corrupt disposition is really hard. On top of that, if you’re living among nonbelievers—and especially if you’re working with them—then being an honest person and telling the truth can get you laughed at, slandered, judged, even ostracized or driven out. That creates challenges for our survival. Many people say: “Being an honest person isn’t viable. I’ll be at a disadvantage if I speak frankly, and I won’t get anything done without telling lies.” What sort of perspective is this? That’s the perspective and the rationale of a deceitful person. They say false, deceptive things entirely to protect their own status and interests. They’re not willing to be honest people and tell the truth for fear of losing those things. All of corrupt humanity is like that. No matter how learned they are, how high or low their status, whether they’re an official or common citizen, whether they’re a celebrity or an average person, they all constantly lie and cheat, and no one is trustworthy. If these corrupt dispositions aren’t resolved, they’ll continue to lie and cheat all the time, and be full of a deceitful disposition. Can they achieve true submission to God like this? Can they gain God’s approval? Absolutely not.

Do you feel like being an honest person is hard to do? Have you ever tried to put it into practice? In what respects have you practiced and experienced being an honest person? What principles were your practices based on? What level of experience do you have of this at the moment? Have you reached the point where you are basically an honest person? If you have achieved this, that’s wonderful! We should be able to see from God’s words that, in order to save and transform us, He does not merely do some work to give a foretaste of what’s to come, or work to show what the future may hold, after which He is done. Nor does He alter people’s external behavior. Rather, He wants to change every single person, starting from the innermost depths of their hearts, from their dispositions and from their very essences, and transform them at the source. Given that this is how God works, how should we then act toward ourselves? We should take responsibility for what we seek, for our dispositional change, and for the duties that we should do. We should be serious in everything we do, without letting things slide, and be able to hold everything up for dissection. Every time you finish doing something, even if you believe it was done correctly, it may not necessarily be in line with the truth. It must also be dissected, and must be compared, verified, and discerned according to God’s words. This way, whether it was correct or mistaken will become clear. Moreover, the things you think you did wrong must also be dissected. This requires the brothers and sisters to spend more time together fellowshipping, seeking, and helping each other out. The more you fellowship, the brighter your heart will be, and the more you will understand the truth principles. This is God’s blessing. If none of you open your heart, and you all cover up yourselves, hoping to leave a good impression in the minds of others and wanting them to think highly of you and not scoff at you, then you will not experience true growth. If you always disguise yourself and never open up in fellowship, you won’t receive the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, and you won’t be able to understand the truth. What will be the result then? You will live in darkness forever, and you will not be saved. If you want to gain the truth and change your disposition, you must pay a price to gain the truth and practice the truth, and you must open your heart and fellowship with others. This is beneficial to both your life entry and your dispositional change. Discussing your experience and understanding in gatherings benefits you and others. How will it turn out if none of you talk about your self-knowledge, or your experiences and understanding; if none of you dissect yourselves or open up; if you all excel at speaking words and doctrines, with none of you sharing your understanding of yourselves, and with none of you having the courage to bring to light what little self-knowledge you possess? You’ll all get together and exchange some polite words and pleasantries, you’ll flatter and boast to each other, and say disingenuous things. “Oh, you’ve been pretty good lately. You’ve made some changes!” “You’ve shown such great faith recently!” “You’re so passionate!” “You’ve expended so much more than I have.” “Your contributions are greater than mine!” This is the kind of situation that develops. Everyone flatters and boasts to each other, and nobody is willing to bring out their true self for dissection, for everyone to discern and understand. Can there be a true church life in this kind of environment? No, there cannot be. Some people say: “I’ve lived church life for quite a few years. I’ve always been content and I’ve enjoyed it. In gatherings, the brothers and sisters all like praying and singing hymns to praise God. Everyone is moved to tears by the prayers and hymns. Sometimes things get emotionally charged and we’re all hot and sweaty. The brothers and sisters sing and dance; it’s such a rich, colorful church life, and it’s so enjoyable. It really embodies the work of the Holy Spirit! After that, we eat and drink God’s words, and we feel that God’s words speak straight to our hearts. Everybody’s really enthusiastic every time we fellowship.” A few years of this kind of church life is really enjoyable for everyone, but what comes of it? Hardly anyone actually enters into the truth reality, and hardly anyone can describe their experiences to bear witness to God. They have lots of energy for reading God’s words, singing and dancing, but when it comes time to fellowship the truth, some people become disinterested. No one talks about their experience of becoming an honest person; no one dissects themselves, and no one lays bare their own corrupt disposition for others to know and to discern, for their benefit and edification. No one fellowships on their actual experiential testimony to glorify God. Several years of church life are frittered away just like that, singing and dancing, feeling happy, full of enjoyment. You tell Me: Where does this happiness and enjoyment come from? I’d say that it’s not what God wants to see or what satisfies Him, because what He wants to see is a change in people’s life dispositions, and people living out the truth reality. God wants to see this reality. He doesn’t want you to clutch your hymnals, singing and dancing in praise of Him when you’re in gatherings or feeling passionate—that’s not what He wants to see. On the contrary, God is sad, pained, and anxious when He sees this, because He has spoken thousands upon thousands of words, but not one single person has truly carried and lived them out. This is just what worries God. You often feel quite complacent and self-satisfied with a little peace and happiness from your church life. You praise God and gain some enjoyment, a wisp of comfort or some spiritual fulfillment, and then believe that you’ve practiced your faith well. You cling to these illusions, treating them as capital, as the biggest takeaway from your faith in God, and accept them in place of a change in your life disposition and an entry onto the path of salvation. That way, you think that there’s no need to pursue the truth or pursue being an honest person. There’s no need to reflect on yourself or dissect your problems, or practice and experience God’s words. This is now getting into dangerous territory. If people continue this way; if, when God’s work draws to a close, they still haven’t become honest people or managed to do their duty well enough; if they haven’t achieved true submission to God and can still be misled and controlled by antichrists; if they haven’t escaped Satan’s influence; if they haven’t met these requirements given to them by God, then they are not people whom God will save. That is why God is concerned.

People are always really enthusiastic when they’re new to faith. When they hear God fellowship the truth, especially, they think: “Now I understand the truth. I’ve found the true way. I’m really happy!” Every day feels as joyful as celebrating the New Year or a wedding; every day they are looking forward to someone hosting a gathering or fellowshipping. But after a few years, some people lose their fervor for church life and lose their fervor for believing in God, too. Why is that? It’s because they only have a superficial, theoretical understanding of God’s words and the truth. They haven’t truly entered into God’s words, or personally experienced their reality. Just as God says, many people look at the sumptuous food at the banquet, but most of them are just coming to take a look. They do not pick up the delicious food provided by God and eat it, tasting it and using it to replenish their bodies. This is what God detests, and what worries Him. Isn’t this the kind of state you’re currently in? (Yes.) I fellowship with all of you frequently to help you out. What most concerns Me is that, after listening to these sermons and having your spiritual needs met, you’ll do nothing to put them into practice and will think nothing more of them. In which case, all I’ve said would have been in vain. No matter what sort of caliber someone has, you’ll be able to tell whether or not they are someone who loves the truth after two or three years of faith. If they are someone who loves the truth, then sooner or later they will pursue it; if they are not someone who loves the truth, they won’t hold up for long, and will be revealed and eliminated. Are you actually lovers of the truth? Are you willing to become honest people? Will you be able to change in the future? How much of this will you personally carry out after this fellowship? How much of this will produce results in you, really? All of that is unknown; it will be revealed in the end. It has nothing to do with how fervent someone is or how much suffering they can take when they are new to the faith. The key is whether or not they love the truth, and whether or not they can accept the truth. Only those who love the truth will mull it over after hearing a sermon. Only they will ponder how to put God’s words into practice, how to experience them, how to apply them in their daily lives, and how to live out the truth reality in God’s words to become someone who truly submits to God. That is why those who love the truth will ultimately gain the truth. Those who don’t love the truth might accept the true way; they might gather and listen to sermons every day and learn some doctrine, but the moment they encounter hardship or trials, they become negative and weak, and may even renounce their faith. As believers, whether or not you can enter into the truth reality depends on your attitude toward the truth and what the goal of your pursuit is: whether or not it really is to gain the truth as your life. Some people equip themselves with the truth in order to help others, to serve God, or to lead the church well. That’s not bad, and it means that those people shoulder something of a burden. But if they don’t focus on their own life entry or on practicing the truth, and if they don’t seek the truth to resolve problems, then can they enter into the truth reality? That would be impossible. How can they help others if they don’t possess the truth reality? How can they serve God? Can they do church work well? That, too, would be impossible. It doesn’t matter how many sermons you have listened to or what path you have chosen. I will share the correct perspective with you: No matter what duty you do, whether you are a leader or a regular follower, you must primarily put your effort into God’s words. You must read them and think them over earnestly. You must first gain an understanding of all the truths that you need to know and practice; hold yourself up to them and carry them out for yourself. You have not gained a truth until you have first understood it and entered into reality. If you always explain the doctrine that you understand to others, but you are unable to put them into practice or experience them, then this is a mistake—this is foolishness and ignorance. You should practice and experience God’s words as the truth, gradually coming to understand a great deal of truths. Then you will start to get better and better results in your duty, and have many experiential testimonies to share. This way, God’s words will become your life. You will be sure to do your duty well, and you will also be able to complete the commission God has given to you. If you always want to hold others up to these words, apply them to others, or use them as capital in your work, then you’ll be in trouble. In doing this, you are taking exactly the same path as Paul—to a tee. Since this is your perspective, you are surely treating these words as doctrine, as theory, and you want to use these theories to deliver speeches and get work done. This is very dangerous—this is what false leaders and antichrists do. If you view your own state according to God’s words, first reflecting on and gaining an understanding of yourself, and then putting the truth into practice, you will reap the rewards and enter into the truth reality. Only then will you be qualified and have the stature to do your duty well. If you don’t have practical experience of God’s work and His words; if you have no life entry at all and can only recite words and doctrines, then even if you do the work, you will be doing it blindly, achieving nothing concrete. Ultimately you will become a false leader and an antichrist, and you will be eliminated. If you understand an aspect of the truth, you should first hold yourself up against it for comparison and implement it in your life, so that it becomes your reality. Then you will certainly gain something and be changed. If you feel that God’s words are good, that they are the truth and have reality, but you do not contemplate or try to understand the truth in your heart, nor practice and experience it in your practical life, instead just writing it down in a notebook and stopping there, then you will never understand or gain the truth. When you read God’s words or hear sermons and fellowship, you must ponder and hold yourself up against them, linking them with your own states, and using them to resolve your own problems. Only by implementing the words in this way can you genuinely gain something from them. Is this what you practice after you have heard a sermon? If it is not, then God is not in your lives, nor are His words, and you have no reality in your belief in Him. You are living outside of God’s words, like nonbelievers. Anyone who believes in God, but cannot apply His words in real life in order to practice and experience them does not really believe in God—they are a disbeliever. Those who cannot practice the truth are not people who submit to God, they are people who rebel against Him and resist Him. Without bringing God’s words into one’s real life, they have no way to experience God’s work. And if one does not experience God’s work or the judgment and chastisement of His words in their real life, they have no way to gain the truth. Do you understand this? If you can comprehend these words, then that would be best—but no matter how you comprehend them, no matter how much you understand, the most crucial thing is that you should bring God’s words and the truths that you do understand into your real life, and practice them there. This is the only way for you to grow in stature and for your disposition to change.

When God expresses truths or puts forward His requirements of people, He will always point out principles and paths of practice for them. Take being an honest person, for example, like we were just talking about: God has given people a path, telling them how to be honest people and how to practice the principles of being honest people, in order for them to get on the right track. God said, “If you are highly averse to laying bare your secrets—your difficulties—before others to seek the way of the light, then I say that you are someone who will not attain salvation easily, and who will not easily emerge from the darkness.” The implication here is that He requires us to take what we think to be secret or private and lay it bare, to present it for dissection. This is what you haven’t thought of: You didn’t understand or know that God said this to have you practice this way. Sometimes you act with the intent to deceive and cheat, and so your actions and intents should be changed. Perhaps no one perceives the deceitful or cheating nature in your words—but don’t pat yourself on the back. You should come before God and examine yourself—you can fool people, but you can’t fool God. You need to pray, lay bare and dissect your intents and methods, reflect on whether these intents of yours would be pleasing to God, or whether they would be detested by Him, whether you can lay them bare, whether they are hard to talk about, and whether they accord with the truth. With this kind of dissection and analysis you will discover that, in fact, this matter is not in line with the truth; this kind of behavior is hard to bring out into the light, and it is detested by God. Then, you change this behavior. How does this fellowship of Mine make you feel? Some of you probably feel worried. You think: “Believing in God is really complicated. It’s been hard enough to get this far—now I have to start all over?” The reality is, now God has come, and He has begun leading mankind to enter into the truth reality. This is the beginning as a believer, and as a person. If you would make a good start, you must build a solid foundation in your faith, first learning the truths of visions and the significance of following God, and then focusing on practicing the truth and doing your duty well. This way, you can enter into the truth reality. If you only focus on speaking words and doctrines and establish a foundation based on those things, that becomes a problem. It’s like building the foundation of a house on sand: No matter how tall you build it, it will always be in danger of collapsing, and it will not last. However, there is one commendable thing about all of you at this point, which is that you can understand what I fellowship with you about and are willing to listen to it. This is good. Pursuing the truth and entering into reality is what matters most, and the rest is secondary. As long as you know this, it won’t be hard to get onto the right track in your faith. To walk the path of pursuing the truth, you must first know yourself—you must be clear about what corrupt dispositions you possess and what your shortcomings are. Then you will understand the importance of equipping yourself with the truth, and you will be able to quickly seek the truth to resolve problems. Time waits for no man! Once you have addressed your problems with life entry and you possess the truth reality, you will have a greater sense of inner peace. No matter how great the disasters are, you will not feel afraid. If you fritter away these last few years without pursuing the truth, and when things come up, you still tend to go into a daze, and you remain in a passive state of waiting, nor can you use the truth to resolve your problems, but still live by philosophies for worldly dealings and corrupt dispositions, then how piteous that would be! If, when the day comes on which the disasters are great, you don’t possess a sliver of the truth reality, you will regret not having pursued the truth or done your duty well, not having gained any of the truth at all. You will be living in a constant state of anxiety. Right now, the Holy Spirit’s work waits for no man. In their first few years of faith, He gives people some grace, some mercy; He gives them help and sustenance. If people never change and never enter into reality, but are content with the words and doctrines they know, then they are in danger. They have already missed out on the Holy Spirit’s work, and have missed out on the last chance at God’s salvation and perfection of mankind. They can only fall into disasters, weeping and gnashing their teeth.
