(Minghui.org) Only a few days into 2013, multiple reports have surfaced that officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have committed suicide. On January 8, Qi Xiaolin, deputy chief of the Guangzhou City Police Department, hanged himself. On the night of January 9, Zhang Wanxiong, deputy president of the Liangzhou District Court in Wuwei City, Gansu Province, jumped from the sixth floor of a courthouse office building. His body was not discovered until the next morning. The police reported that a note was found with him. If one carefully looks at the facts, it seems apparent that the suicides are related to the imminent abolishment of the CCP forced labor system (laogai), and to the immeasureable blood debts the CCP judicial system owes to Falun Gong.

Average citizens may not yet be aware, but CCP officials know full well that its forced labor system is illegal; even more so is the persecution of Falun Gong. The CCP judicial system has knowingly violated the law in carrying out the persecution of Falun Gong, and the dark secrets and blood debts it owes to Falun Gong are shocking to say the least. All those officials who have engaged in the persecution have done so with a gambler's mindset. They are aware that as soon as the dark secrets are exposed, the law will not spare them the death penalty when they are brought to justice.

The law can protect people's lives, including the lives of law enforcement officers. One who abides by the law will commit no crimes, so there is no need to atone for his crimes. Yet the presumptuous CCP bends the law to its own will, piling up debt upon mounting debt of crimes as it cavalierly tramples the law. When it is time for the final settlement, who can bear the grave consequences?

I heard this old saying often cited by my mother, "When a man is about to die, this is when he is most anxious to live." I have a heavy heart toward those who committed suicide because Master Li has told us that "committing suicide is a sin." ("Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference") Regardless of what those who hold atheistic views may think, a person cannot dodge responsibility by choosing to end his life. Committing suicide on top of having committed heinous crimes only adds to one's sinful debt, which as I understand it, will be settled in Hell.

The lives of those who committed suicide cannot be brought back. Here I would like to tell other CCP officials who are thinking about committing suicide: "Do not kill yourself! Do not add another sin on top of your other sins! Life is precious. The one who deserves the most severe punishment is Jiang Zemin. If one is thinking about committing suicide, this is evidence that this person still has some conscience. Make good use of this remaining conscience to make public what you know about the CCP's dark secrets of the persecution of Falun Gong. Atone for your sins with acts of kindness and repentance, and help Falun Gong practitioners who are still under persecution. Gods and Buddhas are merciful: they will help those willing to return to the path of righteousness from one that is devious. Only the perpetrators who are too stubborn to change their minds will end up scapegoats of the CCP.

If one thinks that by choosing suicide, one will be able to leave wealth to his family, think twice. What kind of life will your loved ones lead with the money you wrongfully made at the cost of your life? Aren't they living off your corpse? Do you think they will have peace of mind? Don't make a foolish choice. Atonement, not committing suicide, is the only way out.
