Editorial: Solemnly Counter the Scams of Those with Crooked Understandings Who Undermine the Fa
(Minghui.org) Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples shoulder a huge historical mission. At this current historic moment while urgently saving people, the majority of practitioners are making steadfast efforts to do well the three things, including studying the Fa, sending righteous thoughts and clarifying the truth, as Master has taught us, thus fulfilling the sacred mission of Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples. But some practitioners who have not studied the Fa well, and led by their attachments, have been deceived by the lies of those who have crooked understandings and are undermining the Fa. These practitioners are wasting their precious time, and irrationally doing something that is totally out of accord with Dafa.
For example, some people who undermine the Fa often spread fake scriptures, spread rumors, and even spread things downloaded from the evil websites. There are some who are collecting money and swindling practitioners in the name of exchanging understandings with practitioners in different places in Liaoning Province. They have not only swindled practitioners out of their money, but also incited practitioners to swindle money from their elderly family members. In order to collect money and swindle practitioners, those people who undermine the Fa often change their rhetoric. But regardless of whether they were previously assistants at practice sites, or schoolteachers, no matter how skillful they are in producing convincing arguments, and no matter what kinds of excuses or stories they fabricate, they are doing things that undermine the Fa, and destroying practitioners and sentient beings.
These people who undermine the Fa are often attached to what they hear and see with their celestial ears, celestial eyes and in their dreams. They are attached to their egos, and forget that only Dafa is fundamental. Incited by some individuals, some practitioners in the Liaoning Province area went to the Tang Emperor Temple (Tang Wang Miao) in Daheishan to kowtow and make some petitions. Some who are undermining the Fa asked practitioners to worship the Tang Emperor image on bended knees, and offer sacrifices to the image of the Tang Emperor. Using false teachings such as "forming a karmic relationship," "special cultivation state and form," and "validate the Fa from different aspects," and so on, they quoted out of context and distorted Dafa, making up explanations for their crooked understandings and actions. Dafa disciples' Fa-rectification cultivation is to do well the three things: study the Fa, send forth righteous thoughts and clarify the truth, as Master has taught us. Those who undermine the Fa don't even recognize Master's lectures that have been formally published, so how can they talk about "enlightening to things higher?" Just who are you following as you cultivate? And where are you "cultivating" to? All the explanations or fabrications that these Fa-undermining people have made up are nothing but singing their own praises, and creating lies that deceive themselves and others. The actions of practitioners who have been influenced by those who thus undermine the Fa are a result of their being misled by their fears, human emotions and attachment to pursuit, and are manifestations of their unrighteous minds.
We hope that practitioners who have been misled in this way will stop before it is too late, quickly return to the path of Fa-rectification cultivation, and compensate for any losses they have caused. Practitioners across China, please take the Fa as Teacher, seriously resist the words and actions of those who try to undermine the Fa, and walk well on the path of our Fa-rectification cultivation.
