Only by Resolving One's Notions Can One Embark on the Right Track of Belief in God (2) Part Two

I talked just now about one aspect of people’s dispositions—intransigence. Because of people’s intransigence, when they face the painful circumstances and predicaments that the Creator puts them in, their attitude is not to submit, but rather, to hold fast to whatever benefits them and to not abandon it. How does God deal with such behavior? God’s work is independent of people’s will, so how does God deal with people’s actions like this? God will definitely not say, “You failed this time, so you are doomed. People like you are no good and I don’t want you anymore.” God has not given up on people. He keeps using the same way, arranging different environments and different people, events, and things, so that people can experience the same pain and face the same predicaments. What is the purpose of this? (It makes people come to their senses.) It makes people reflect, come to their senses, and abandon their stubborn views. Time and time again, God uses His own unique methods to converse with humans in this way, and to interact with humans in this way. Ultimately, what is the result that God wants to achieve through this method of working? God guides people by making them go through different predicaments, anguish, and even illnesses and family misfortunes throughout their lives. The purpose of making people experience this suffering is to get them to constantly reflect and understand in their soul, and to verify deep down: “Is this God’s arrangement? How should I walk my future path? Should I change direction? Should I seek the way of truth? Should I change the way I live?” God makes people experience all kinds of pain, tribulations, misfortunes, and predicaments, so that afterward they receive confirmation deep in their hearts that there is a Sovereign who rules over people’s destiny, and that people cannot be willful, arrogant, or stubborn, but must learn to submit—submit to environments, submit to destiny, and submit to everything that happens around them. Before you hear God’s clear words, God uses these ways and facts to make you experience all sorts of environments, people, events, and things, and to make you constantly confirm deep in your heart that people’s destiny is arranged by God, that no person holds sovereignty over it, and that people cannot hold sovereignty over their own destiny. You constantly have this kind of understanding or voice deep in your heart, and you constantly confirm that everything you experience is not caused by any one person, nor does it happen by chance, nor is it caused by objective reasons or circumstances, but it is God who invisibly holds sovereignty over everything. It is not by coincidence that a person meets another person and something happens, or that they encounter an environment that changes their life. It is not by coincidence that a person is afflicted by disease and afterward obtains great blessings. This is God telling each person in this unique way: God holds sovereignty over people’s destiny, God is watching over and guiding people every day, and guiding everyone through each day and throughout their life. In addition to letting people know that He holds sovereignty over the destiny of humankind, over everything to do with people’s lives, over the destination of humankind, and over absolutely everything to do with humankind, what else does God want to accomplish? It is to make some impractical notions, imaginings, and demands that people have toward God the Creator gradually fade, disappear, and be cast off, and then for people to gradually reach the point where they can clearly recognize and understand the ways in which the Creator guides humankind and the ways in which the Creator arranges the destiny of people’s whole life. From these things, people can then see that God has a disposition and that God is vivid and lifelike. He is not a clay statue, nor a robot, nor is He an inanimate creature imagined by people, but rather, He has life and dispositions. In one sense, this makes people understand the ways in which the Creator works and makes people let go of all sorts of notions, imaginings, and some empty reasoning and logic that do not conform to reality. In short, it makes people let go of all empty notions and imaginings regarding God’s work. In another sense, once they let go of these notions and imaginings, people can accept and submit to God’s work and His sovereignty. This is a small result in one sense, but in another sense there is a result that you have not seen, and it is the one that is the biggest and the most profound. What is this result? It is that God uses these ways to tell people that everything He does and accomplishes on people, He does in a particularly practical and real state. Once people understand this, they will cast off some empty and illusory things, actually obey and submit to the Creator’s arrangements, and then actually face everything arranged by the Creator in real life, instead of using some empty theories or religious concepts or theological knowledge to imagine the Creator, or to deal with some things in life. This is the outcome that God wants to see, and what He wants to achieve in people. Therefore, in the first stage, before you hear the Creator’s voice and understand the Creator’s clear words about various truths, the way God works on people is to arrange various environments for you to experience and be exposed to. When you have some confirmation, and when you have some feelings about these things deep in your heart, and are moved by them and comprehend them, God will tell you in clear words what life is about, what God is about, how humans came to be, and what kind of path people should take. In this way, based on the belief that humans come from God and were created by God, and the belief that there is a Sovereign among the heavens and earth and all things, people then take the path of faith in God, and subsequently come to accept God’s judgment and chastisement, and accept God’s salvation and perfection—the effectiveness of this is even better. Now, who are all the people who accept God’s work of the last days? At the very least, they acknowledge the existence of God and believe that the entire universe world is subject to God’s sovereignty. They also believe in destiny and that human life is preordained by God, and furthermore, they believe in the existence of the spiritual realm and the existence of heaven and hell, and that people’s destiny is predetermined. From among these people, God has selected His chosen people, who love the truth and who can accept the truth. They can understand God’s voice and accept God’s work. This is one way and one principle by which God works.

We talked just now about how God works on people, and about the ways in which God works. We touched on these things alone, without saying anything about what people’s notions are or what demands people place on God. Let’s fellowship now on the issues in this regard. Since we mentioned in this fellowship that people have some empty and vague ideas and understandings about God’s work, let’s find some examples to prove this, and talk a little bit about both positive and negative examples. On this foundation, won’t people then be able to understand which imaginings are fairly hollow and quite vague, and are notions about God’s work? Starting with the story I told you earlier, the protagonist of the story went through a number of painful experiences in life. After each painful experience, God continued, using His own methods, to arrange and orchestrate her destiny and guide her on the road ahead. Although she didn’t understand, didn’t know, and didn’t reflect, God still did this, just as He had always done. At this stage, did she display some thoughts about this way in which the Creator works? Could those thoughts be said to be a sort of notion? What exactly are these thoughts and this kind of notion? First of all, in terms of the protagonist herself, she had one wish. She didn’t expect to be rich or wealthy in life, she only wanted someone to rely on. Through dissection and analysis, we can see that this wish was wrong. In one sense, it was contrary to the destiny that God orchestrates and arranges for people, and in another sense, it wasn’t practical either. So has God provided a definition or a statement about this wish of hers? According to people’s imaginings, it would be very easy for God to make a person understand a little bit of doctrine, wouldn’t it? If He wanted to make them understand, wouldn’t they just understand? This woman had a desire to have someone to rely on—God could make her not have that desire, or make her change that desire—did God do that? (No.) No, God didn’t do that. Was her desire a sort of notion? Was it supernatural? Was it hollow? It is a natural phenomenon for such thoughts to arise in people. Why do I say that it’s a natural phenomenon? God made man with free will. Man has a brain, thoughts, and ideas. After being corrupted by Satan, man became immersed in the sounds and sights of the world, and, after being educated by parents, conditioned by families, and educated by society, many things arise in man’s thoughts—things that are born of man’s heart, which all come forth naturally. How are these things that come forth naturally within man formed? Firstly, a person must have the ability to give thought to problems—this is the foundation one must have to be able to give rise to these things. Then, through environmental conditioning—such as being educated by one’s family and society—as well as being impelled by one’s own corrupt dispositions and ambitions and desires, these thoughts gradually take shape. When it comes to such formed thoughts and ideas, regardless of whether they accord with reality or are hollow, or however else they may be, we will not pass a verdict on them now. Instead, we will just speak about how God handles thoughts of this kind. Does God condemn them? God does not condemn them. So how does He approach them? He does not remove such thoughts from people. People harbor a notion and imagining, they think that with a gentle touch of God’s great, formless hand, their thinking will be changed. Is this notion not vague, supernatural, and hollow? (It is.) This is a notion people have of how God works. In the depths of their hearts, people often have fantasies of God’s work and the methods of His work, though they do not give voice to them. People imagine the Creator coming softly next to man and, with a wave of His great hand and a puff of breath or with the rotation of a thought, the negative things inside man will disappear in an instant, with the wordless silence of a great wind blowing away a cloud. How does God treat these ideas of man, these things to which man’s mind gives rise? God does not resolve them with supernatural, hollow methods, but by laying out man’s environment. What sort of environment does He lay out? It is not hollow—God does not do anything supernatural, breaking all the laws. Rather, He lays out an environment that compels a person to understand the matter and to reflect unceasingly, after which God makes use of all manner of people, events, and things to light that person’s way, whereupon that person comes to an understanding. God does not change their destiny; He just adds a few incidents to the course of their destiny, thereby enabling them to understand these things. Man’s notions are all supernatural, hollow, vague, discordant with reality—they are divorced from reality. Say, for instance, someone is hungry and would like to eat. There are those who would say, “God is almighty, all He’d have to do would be to breathe on me and I’d be full. Do I really need to cook? It would be great if God could perform a little miracle so that I didn’t feel hungry.” Is this not unrealistic? (It is.) If you told God you were hungry, what would God say? God would tell you to find some food and cook it. If you said you had no food and could not cook, what would God do? He would tell you to learn to cook. This is the practical side of God’s work. When you encounter something obscure to you, and you no longer give hollow prayers or rely vaguely on God in a self-assured way, or consign your hopes upon these notions and imaginings you have about God, you will then know what it is you should do—you will know your duty, your responsibility, and your obligation.

I just talked about one aspect, which is that when people don’t understand the environments that God lays out, what does God do? God continues to lay out environments. He does this so that people keep on understanding the Creator’s sovereignty, and understanding what their destiny is through the experience of life, and so that people know deep down that their wishes are distinct from their destiny, and distinct from the Creator’s arrangements. He does it so that people will then learn to gradually let go of their own wishes and submit to everything the Creator orchestrates. This is fairly easy to understand. Another aspect is that when God’s clear words come to people, they form some more notions and imaginings. What notions? “God’s words are the bread of life and the truth. God’s words are God Himself. When I hear God’s words, no matter how stupid I am, I immediately become intelligent. As long as I read more of God’s words, my caliber will improve and my skills will increase.” What are these thoughts that people have? They are their notions. So, is this how God works? (No.) Since these are man’s notions, they are definitely at odds with God’s work and in opposition with it. Herein lies a fact. God speaks with man face-to-face and tells him what he should and should not do, what road he should take, how he should submit to God, and the principles he should enter into within the various aspects of the work. God clearly tells man all these things, yet man often still waits and anticipates that God will tell him what His intention really is by means other than His words, hoping to be able to attain previously unimaginable results and hoping to witness miracles. Is this not man’s notion? (It is.) What does God do, in fact? (God lays out practical environments for people to go through and experience God’s words.) What does God do if people still don’t understand His will after He lays out those practical environments for them? (He enlightens and guides people.) What should you do if He doesn’t enlighten and guide you? (Practice according to God’s words and do as God says.) That’s right. From the time that God began His work until the present, how many words has God spoken to people face-to-face? There are so many that even if you spent several years reading them, you still wouldn’t get to the end. But how many words do people gain? If a person gains too few of them, what does that prove? It proves that the person has not put enough effort into God’s words and has not listened to them. There are some who say, “I listened”—but did you take God’s words in? Did you understand them? Did you focus on them? You didn’t focus on them, so God’s words have already flowed right past you. Therefore, when God uses clear language to tell man how to act, how to live, how to submit to Him, and how to experience every event, if man still does not understand, God does nothing more beside laying out environments for him, giving man some special enlightenment, or having man undergo some special experiences. That is the end of what God can, should, and is willing to do. There are those who ask, “Doesn’t God want every person to be saved and not want anyone to suffer perdition? If God used such a method to act, how many people would be able to be saved?” In response, God would ask, “How many people heed My words and follow My way?” There are as many as there are—this is God’s view and the method of His work. God does no more. What is man’s notion of this matter? “God takes pity on this mankind, He’s concerned for this mankind, so He’s got to take responsibility unto the end. If man follows Him unto the end, he’ll inevitably be saved.” Is this notion right or wrong? Does it accord with God’s will? In the Age of Grace, it was normal for people to have these notions, because they did not know God. In the last days, God has told people all these truths, and God has also made clear to them the principles of His work of saving people, so it is very preposterous if people still have these notions in their hearts. God has told you all these truths, so if, in the end, you still say that you don’t understand God’s will and don’t know how to practice, and you still say such rebellious and treacherous words, can such a person be saved by God? There are some who always think, “God does such great work, He should gain more than half of the people in the world, and use a great force of many people with lots of high-class personages to bear witness to God’s glorification. How wonderful that would be!” This is man’s notion. In the Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments, how many were there, in total, who were saved and made perfect? Who was able to fear God and shun evil in the end? (Job and Peter.) They were the only two. As God sees it, to fear Him and shun evil is, in fact, to meet the standard of knowing Him, of knowing the Creator. People like Abraham and Noah were righteous in God’s eyes, but they were still a level beneath Job and Peter. Of course, God did not do so much work then. He did not provide for people as He does now, nor did He speak so many clear words, nor did He do the work of salvation on such a large scale. He may not have gained many people, but this is still within His preordination. What aspect of the Creator’s disposition can be seen in this? God hopes to gain many people, but if many people cannot, in fact, be gained—if this humanity cannot be gained by God while He does His work of salvation—then God would rather abandon them and discard them. This is the inner voice and view of the Creator. In this regard, what demands or notions does man have of God? “Since You wish to save me, You must be responsible unto the end, and You promised me blessings, so You must give them to me and let me gain them.” Within man, there is many a “must”—many demands—and this is one of his notions. Others say, “God does such great work—a six-thousand-year management plan—if, in the end, He only gains two people, that would be such a shame. Wouldn’t His actions be in vain then?” Man thinks it ought not to be so, but God is happy to gain even two people. God’s real purpose is not merely to gain those two, but to gain more than that, but if people do not wake up and understand, and they all misunderstand and resist God, and are all hopeless and worthless, then God would rather not have them. That is God’s disposition. Some people say, “That won’t do. Wouldn’t Satan be laughing then?” Satan may be laughing, but is it not God’s vanquished enemy all the same? God has still gained mankind—several among them who can rebel against Satan and not suffer its control. God has gained true created beings. Are those who have not been gained by God then taken captive by Satan? You have not been made perfect—are you capable of following Satan? (No.) Some people say: “Even if God doesn’t want me, I still won’t follow Satan. Even if it offered me blessings, I wouldn’t take them.” None of those whom God has not gained follow Satan—does God not thus gain glory? People have a notion about the number of people God gains or the scale with which He gains them; they believe God should not gain only those few. That man can give rise to such a notion is because, in one regard, man cannot fathom the mind of God and cannot understand what sort of person He wants to gain—there is always a distance between man and God; in another regard, to have such a notion is a way for man to comfort himself and set himself free so far as his own destiny and future are concerned. Man believes, “God has gained so few people—how glorious it would be for Him to gain us all! If God didn’t discard a single person, but conquered everyone, and everyone was made perfect in the end, and the talk of God’s choosing and saving people didn’t come to naught, nor did His work of management, then wouldn’t Satan be humiliated all the more? Wouldn’t God gain greater glory?” That he can say this is partly because he does not know the Creator and partly because he has his own selfish motive: He is worried about his future, so he hitches it to the Creator’s glory, and thus his heart feels at ease, thinking that he can have his cake and eat it too. In addition, he also feels that “God gaining people and humiliating Satan is strong evidence of Satan’s defeat. It’s killing three birds with one stone!” People are really good at working out how to benefit themselves. This notion is quite clever, isn’t it? People have selfish motives, and is there not something of rebelliousness in these motives? Is there not a demand made of God? There is within it an unvoiced resistance against God that says, “You have chosen us, led us, labored so much on us, bestowed Your life and Your entirety upon us, bestowed Your words and truth upon us, and had us follow You all these years. What a loss it would be if You couldn’t gain us in the end.” Such an excuse is an attempt to blackmail God, to obligate Him to gain them. It’s saying that if God doesn’t gain them, then they won’t be losing out, and that it’s God who will suffer a loss—is this statement correct? Within this, there are both man’s demands, and his imaginings and notions: God does such great work, so He must gain however many people. Where does this “must” come from? It comes from man’s notions and imaginings, his unreasonable demands, and his vanity, along with some admixture of his intransigent and ferocious disposition.

Such notions of man must be fellowshipped on from another perspective. There are some who think, “Since the Creator doesn’t care how many people He gains, and thinks that He will just gain as many people as He gains, since this is the Creator’s attitude, how should we cooperate with Him? Is it okay to just believe casually and not take it so seriously? In any case, God doesn’t take it seriously either, so we don’t need to be so serious in catering to God’s requirements, nor do we need to regard it as our primary occupation, or as our lifelong pursuit. Now that we know God’s thoughts, shouldn’t we change our way of living?” Is this view right or wrong? (It’s wrong.) Since God’s attitude has been made clear to people, and they understand it, they should let go of their notions. After letting go of their notions, what should people do and how should they choose, and how should they understand and deal with this matter so that they have the view and attitude that they ought most to hold? First of all, in terms of their views, people should try to ponder over them. Once one believes in God, they have a vague imagining of reverence and esteem for Him. They think that “God is almighty, omnipotent, and, since He has chosen a group of people from among this corrupt humanity, He will certainly be able to make them complete. We, therefore, are bound to be blessed, as a matter of certainty.” Does such “certainty” not have a mentality of trying one’s luck behind it? To wish to gain blessings and God’s approval without pursuing the truth or undergoing God’s judgment and chastisement is the attitude man ought least to hold. Do not adopt a mentality of trying your luck—luck is the great enemy. What sort of mindset is trying one’s luck? Which of your states, thoughts, ideas, attitudes, notions, and views have a mentality of trying your luck behind them? Can you detect this? If you do detect this and see the existence of a mindset of trying your luck to gain blessings, how should you go about changing it? How should you resolve it? These are practical issues. You must see through the mentality of trying your luck. You must resolve it. If you don’t resolve it, it will be likely to trip you up and you will suffer. So, what things involve a mentality of trying one’s luck? There are some who think, “I believe in God and have even left my family and quit my job. No matter what, even if I haven’t rendered a meritorious service, I’ve worked hard, and even if I haven’t worked hard, I’ve tired myself out, so as long as I follow God to the end, I might become one of the overcomers, one of the saved, one of the blessed, one of the people of God’s kingdom.” This is a mentality of trying one’s luck. Doesn’t everyone have this mentality? At the very least, the majority of those who leave everything behind to follow God and perform their duties full-time have this sort of mentality. Is a mentality of trying one’s luck not a sort of notion? (It is.) Why do I say it is a sort of notion? Because, when you have not understood or comprehended the intention and the attitude the Creator has toward this matter, you just subjectively expect a good outcome and subjectively pursue, and that is how you approach it. It is a sort of notion. To the Creator, is such a notion not a kind of blackmail? Is it not an unreasonable demand? It is as if to say, “Since I’ve followed You, and since I’ve left everything behind and come to God’s house to perform my duty full-time, I must count as someone who has submitted to the arrangements of the Creator, right? So, can I have a promising future now? My future shouldn’t be obscure—it should be plain to see.” This is a mindset of trying one’s luck. How is such a mindset resolved? One must know God’s disposition. Now that I have fellowshipped like this, everyone should fundamentally understand this: “So that’s what God thinks. That’s God’s view and His attitude. So, what should we do?” People should put aside their mentality of trying their luck. To put aside this mentality, is it enough to say, “I’ve put it aside and won’t have such thoughts anymore. I’ll treat my duty seriously, take responsibility, and work harder”? It is not so simple—when one develops a mentality of trying their luck, there emerge in them some thoughts and practices, and, more than that, some dispositions will be revealed. These things should be resolved by seeking the truth. Some say, “If I’ve understood God’s will and attitude, aren’t I rid of the mentality of trying my luck?” What sort of talk is that? It is lacking spiritual understanding; it is hollow talk. How, then, is this problem resolved? You must consider, “What should I do if God takes everything away from me? Is everything I devote to God and expend for Him given willingly, or are they attempts to barter with Him? If I have an intention to barter with Him, then that’s not good. I’ll have to pray to God and seek the truth to resolve that.” In addition, as you practice and as you perform your duty, you should understand which truth principles you do not understand, what you do that goes against God’s requirements and His will, what sort of path is the wrong one and the path of disaster, and what sort of path is the one that can meet with God’s approval. What other things involve a mindset of trying one’s luck? There are people who, having come down with a serious illness, are saved by God and are ill no longer. They think, “All of you believe in God to chase after blessings. I’m different. It was God’s great love that brought me here; He gave me special circumstances and special experiences that led me to believe in Him, so He loves me more than He loves you, He treats me with particular grace and, in the end, I will have a greater chance to survive than you.” They think they have an extraordinary, special relationship with God—that their relationship with Him is different from those of ordinary people. Because of their special experience, they feel themselves to be extraordinary and uncommon, and they therefore maintain a kind of certainty that they will succeed. They define themselves as assuredly different from others, and are assured of their ability to survive—this, too, is a mentality of trying one’s luck. There are others who have taken on some important work and whose status is high. They suffer a bit more than others, are pruned a bit more than others, keep themselves a bit busier than others, and speak a bit more than others. They think, “I’ve been put in an important position by God and by His house and I am in favor with my brothers and sisters. What an honor this is. Doesn’t this mean I’ll be blessed before others?” This, too, is a mentality of trying one’s luck, and it is a kind of notion.

I have just talked about some practical manifestations and states of trying one’s luck. What other states, manifestations, or things that often arise and habitually exist in people’s minds belong to trying one’s luck? Besides those who have special experiences, high status, and who have left everything behind to expend themselves for God full-time, there are also those who are qualified, do some special duties, and have some special talents—these people all have a mindset of trying their luck. What does “qualified” refer to? For example, some who preach the gospel believe that if they win over 10 people, they will have borne 10 fruits and have a 10 percent chance of being blessed, and that if they bear 50 fruits they will have a 50 percent chance, and if they bear 100 fruits then they will have a 100 percent chance. This is a sort of notion, a kind of bartering, and above all, it is trying one’s luck. If they can measure God’s work while holding onto these notions and this mentality of trying their luck, is this believing in God? What path are they taking? Is there not something wrong with their pursuit? Why do these things arise in them? Why do they hold onto them and refuse to let go? Some say that it is because they don’t know God. Is this right? This is empty talk. So what exactly is the reason? The people who always hold onto such views and attitudes, and who have these notions and are particularly stubborn in clinging onto them—are they seriously putting effort into God’s words? (No.) They always have a perfunctory attitude toward God’s words, that is, the attitude and view of someone who is looking through a haze. They think that in their belief in God, they only need to know how much they have suffered for God and how much of a price they have paid, how much merit they have earned, what special talents they have, how skilled they are, how high their status is, what kind of “moments of companionship in adversity” they have experienced with God, what special experiences they have had, and what special things God has given them, or what grace and blessings He has given to them that are different from what has been given to other people—they think this is enough. No matter how tightly they cling onto these views, they have never reflected on whether these views of theirs are correct, or which of God’s words and which principles of His work these views conflict with, or whether these views have been validated by God, or whether God works this way, or accomplishes things this way. They have never cared about these issues. Up until now, they have only pondered, ruminated, and dreamed in their own minds. So what has the truth become to them? It has become a decoration. Although these people believe in God, their belief has nothing to do with God or with the truth. So what does their belief have to do with? It has only to do with notions, imaginings, and their own desires, as well as their future blessings and destinations. They haven’t put effort into the truth, so they end up with these results.

Through today’s fellowship, now that you have gained some understanding of God’s way of working or God’s views and attitude, can this have some effect and achieve some results when it comes to your pursuit of knowing God, your pursuit of the truth, and your pursuit of life entry? Can it turn your wrong views around, so that you let go of your own notions? (Yes.) What does this require people to do? (To let go of their notions and act according to the standards required by God.) You must understand that since God has made such requirements and determinations, He will definitely bring them to pass. In the end, the fact is that God’s words will not come to naught—they will all be accomplished and fulfilled. If you think that God may not necessarily carry out the things He talks of, this is man’s notion and imagining, and it is also doubting and judging God. There are some who say, “How could God do that? How could He be content with just saving as many people as He saves? Is God’s love not great and infinite? God’s patience is infinite, and God’s tolerance and mercy are also infinite.” They make all kinds of excuses for not pursuing the truth, they leave themselves a convenient way out so that they can tread their own path, and they ignore God’s words and work, and the appearance of the Creator. They know full well in their hearts that it is the truth, and yet they hope that it were not so. There is an element of disbelief in what they do, as well as an element of competing against the Creator, and conflicting with and blackmailing the Creator. What is the purpose of Me saying these words? There are some who say, “This is to give us a wake-up call, to frighten us, or to make us understand that those who wish to back away can just back away, that those who become weak or negative can just stay weak or negative, and that those who wish to live their own lives can just live their own lives. God’s work won’t take very long, and besides, God doesn’t need that many people, so let’s just go our separate ways!” Is this how things are? (No.) No matter what God says, or how He says it, what God makes people understand is His will and what He makes them comprehend is the truth. So what path should people follow? They should follow God’s way. What should people reflect on and seek to resolve? All notions, imaginings and demands that are antagonistic toward God. These things are all contrary to the truth. You must give up these things, you must dispel these things from your heart, and you must no longer be affected or controlled by them. You must be able to truly come before God and accept the judgment, chastisement, and pruning of God’s words, you must be cleansed of your corrupt dispositions, and achieve submission to God’s orchestration and arrangements. In addition, you must constantly reflect on the things in yourself that are incompatible with God and contrary to the truth, and reflect on your corrupt dispositions, your incorrect views on various matters, and man’s different notions and imaginings. Once you reflect on and understand these things clearly, and seek the truth to resolve them once and for all, you will have embarked upon the right track of faith in God, and only then will you be able to obey God and submit to His orchestration and arrangements.
