(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Huang, a seventy-year-old resident of Jingzhou City, Hubei Province, told Falun Gong practitioners what he had encountered in life after reading Falun Gong truth-clarification materials and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party:

"During the Cultural Revolution, I was deluded by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and joined its organization. I was a teacher in an elementary school. Later, I became the head of the local Red Guards. At that time, orders from above came down, stating that 'Bad elements in society and the Four Old Things' must be swept away. Local temples also became targets of destruction. But the local people did not dare to destroy those temples, because they were afraid of incurring divine retribution. I was one of the key players in the Red Guards and was a member of the CCP, so the leaders ordered me to take a group of Red Guards to destroy those temples. I thought that I was an atheist, so I followed the orders. I thought that there would be no problem if I did that. As soon as we entered the temple, I broke the left arm of one Buddha statue. Then I ordered others to pick up all the big and small Buddha statues and throw them on the ground. We poured gasoline on them, and I lit the fire.

"However, after I got home, both of my arms were afflicted with some strange condition. I did not have any strength in my left arm. It was dangling down all the time and looked broken. I had not sensation in it. Although my right arm had some sensitivity, it was red and swollen, and I felt a burning pain. I saw all kinds of doctors, but no one could diagnose me. There was no improvement, no matter what medicine or injections I took. Villagers said that that was my karmic retribution for destroying the temples. At first I did not believe them. However, after reading Falun Gong truth-clarification materials and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, I understand now. I was deceived by the CCP and atheism. How can human beings fight against divine beings? Now I know that it was wrong to destroy those temples."

Mr. Huang said, "My last name is Huang. This character contains the strokes of the Chinese character for "gong." This is the first character in the Chinese word for communism. From now on, I will remove this part of my last name and rid myself of the CCP's control. I will use the remaining strokes, which make up the character "tian" as my last name, so my pen name is now Tian Tian. From now on, I will be able to live a happy life."

Half a month later, Mr. Tian Tian could move his left arm, and his right arm no longer pained him. He was very happy and said, "It is really true that one will be blessed if one withdraws from all CCP related organizations (the CCP, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers). I spent a lot of money before to try to find a cure for my arms, but nothing worked. Now, without spending a penny and simply by agreeing to withdraw from the CCP, I am cured."

Mr. Tian Tian told fellow villagers his story, and many people learned the truth.
