Practitioner in China: What to Do When Challenged With the Question, "Are you Falun Gong?"
(Clearwisdom.net) In the course of clarifying the truth, advising people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its related organizations and saving sentient beings, we often run into people who suddenly challenge us with the question, "Are you Falun Gong?" when we are at the most critical point. How do we handle such a situation? Will we keep righteous thoughts, eliminate the evil factors behind them and cleanse the field so that they will understand the truth and be saved? Or will we become fearful and stop clarifying the truth? This is a serious test for a Dafa practitioner in the last stage of Fa-rectification period.
I would like to share three stories here which can serve as a reference for practitioners.
One evening, a practitioner encountered two girls who were enjoying the cool air outside. The practitioner had a chat with them. The girls had just graduated from college and were hunting for jobs. The practitioner gave them some information and advised them to quit the CCP. One girl then asked her in surprise, "Are you a Falun Gong practitioner?" The practitioner knew that the young girls had been deceived by the CCP's propaganda, and had been poisoned by the CCP's lies. She had to eliminate the evil factors in their minds before she could save them. So she said to them, "You probably don't know much about Falun Gong. Falun Gong is not as you have heard from the newspapers. It is a very good and righteous way. It teaches people to be good, and then to be even better. Aren't Truthfulness- Compassion-Forbearance good? They are definitely good. Then, as the CCP opposes Truthfulness- Compassion-Forbearance, can the CCP be good?" Then one girl asked, "What about the Tiananmen self-immolation?" The practitioner told them how the CCP had fabricated the self-immolation incident and why it's important to quit the CCP. The two girls understood and immediately agreed to quit the CCP and its related organizations.
A practitioner met two middle-aged blue-collar workers. When he explained the truth to them, they asked him, "You must be a Falun Gong practitioner!" The practitioner wasn't scared and kindly told them, "It doesn't matter whether I practice Falun Gong or not. What I told you is for your own benefit, isn't it?" The two workers smiled, "Yes, we know you care about us. In our hometown, many people practiced Falun Gong. On July 20, 1999, many of them rode bicycles to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. They also handed us flyers. What they told us was pretty much the same as what you have said." The practitioner asked them, "Have you quit the CCP yet?" They said no. The practitioner said, "You really should quit now. It's a predestined relationship that we have run into each other today. If you don't quit, you will miss this predestined relationship. I truly care about you. If you quit, you will choose a bright future for yourself." The workers nodded with a smile, "We agree to quit the CCP!"
At a noisy outdoor dance party in the evening, there was a practitioner who sat on the side and met a lady in her sixties who dressed in fashionable clothing. The practitioner clarified the truth and advised her to quit the CCP. She smiled and said, "You must be a Falun Gong practitioner. Someone told me before that Falun Gong practitioners don't dance. I know you don't participate in such activities, am I right?" The practitioner answered, "No. Falun Gong practitioners don't participate bad activities, however, we do participate in activities that are beneficial to health." Then the practitioner invited the lady to dance and cleared up her misunderstanding about Falun Gong. She then quit the CCP and its related organizations.
