A Good Person or an Accomplice to Evil: Which Will You Choose?
(Minghui.net) I remember a saying: “When someone teaches you to be a good person, you must act accordingly no matter how hard it is, because by conducting yourself this way you will become a messenger of kindness; when someone tells you to do bad things, you must not listen even though it's easy to do, because by engaging in bad behavior, you will become an accomplice of evil.”
I never truly understood the inner meaning and importance of this until now.
Whose words do you listen to? Whose words do you act upon? What you say and do determine whether you are a good person or an accomplice to evil.
A revered teacher teaches his students to behave according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and to “not fight back when punched or insulted.” Just by reading these words you know he is an upright teacher who guides people to be good. This teacher is none other than Mr. Li Hongzhi, founder of Falun Gong, who is highly respected worldwide.
More than one hundred million Falun Gong practitioners follow Mr. Li Hongzhi's teachings. At home, they try to be good daughters and sons, good wives or husbands, good parents and grandparents. They endure humiliation and bear hardships in order to balance household conflicts, turning unhappy families into happy ones.
At work, they arrive early and leave late, working conscientiously with great care. They refuse to be corrupt and never harm others to benefit themselves. They don't embezzle money or engage in corrupt practices, but try to be good people. In society, they are always ready to help others, taking good care of the old and young.
They try to look at things from other people's perspective and always consider others first. These Falun Gong practitioners have not only benefited China and its citizens, but they've also gained good health and uplifted their morality as they constantly rectify and improve themselves in cultivation practice. Their long-term illnesses disappeared and numerous miraculous incidents have been experienced by their friends and relatives.
People from all walks of life in society also feel the extraordinary power and grace of Falun Dafa. Even under severe persecution, practitioners still firmly hold on to the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. When Dafa was being slandered and practitioners brutally persecuted, their Master kept reminding them to be kind to those who were persecuting them.
Tens of millions of practitioners have suffered horrific persecution in the last 14 years, and yet there hasn't been even a single case of retaliation from Falun Gong practitioners. They try to eliminate even a single thought of hatred. They only focus on saving people even when they are being persecuted themselves. They are totally selfless and altruistic. Aren't such extraordinarily good people deities in the human world?
“Defame their reputation, bankrupt them financially and destroy them physically; if practitioners are beaten to death it is nothing and shall be counted as suicide; cremate their body directly without identifying the person.” If you didn't know who said these words, you would think he must be a lawless and ruthless person. In fact, these are Jiang Zemin's words, the former head of the CCP, and a former national leader.
Due to decades of brainwashing, people who follow the Party have lost their basic human nature and only care about power and money. They only see the glittering shell of power while ignoring what is inside. They cannot distinguish good from bad, or true from false. They feel content as long as they get promoted, make money and satisfy their self-interests.
Actually, it is not that these people don't realize that the persecution is evil and criminal, but they wrongly believed that the Party's violent apparatus was to maintain its rule, and Jiang Zemin was the one who had the highest power in China. They thought as long as they were told to do so by the CCP, by Jiang Zemin, they would be fine. While torturing people, some police yelled, “I've nothing to worry about as long as the CCP holds its power.” “The CCP is in power. Whatever we say goes.”
Some thugs hired by the police also shouted, “I work for the CCP. I've nothing to fear even if I beat you to death...”. They thought they could rely on the CCP and Jiang and regarded them as their boss. There is no difference between these people and vicious dogs that are ordered to bite people unscrupulously. They have lost their human nature, rationality and human conscience and are worse than murderous villains.
These people who have been brainwashed with atheism forgot that heavenly principles exist in the human world, and Jiang and his followers are being watched. Because the CCP chose to ignore this, they dared to flaunt their prowess to intimidate others and rampaged about, behaving in a cruel and shameless manner.
To give themselves pleasure, they've caused kind people pain, crippling or killing the innocent, and harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit. Under the instruction and instigation of the CCP and Jiang, all forms of evil yet to be seen on this planet and torturous crimes against humanity are constantly being committed in today's China.
No matter how vicious the evil may seem, it's in fact pretty weak. It does evil by deceiving and instigating bad people. On the other hand, those who were deceived and ordered to participate in the persecution of Falun Gong, regardless of whether they thought they were doing a good thing or a bad thing, were accomplices.
Because they were harming good people and depriving kindhearted people of their rights, what they have done constitute crimes. How can they escape responsibility? Those who have committed unpardonable crimes will surely meet with retribution. Those who listen to the truth and thoroughly rectify their errors, quit the CCP organizations and protect practitioners can still have a bright future, because gods and Buddhas are compassionate and always offer opportunities to save people. However, time is limited and one mustn't keep passing up opportunities offered to them. When the day comes and the facts are revealed, you will not have any more opportunities. Those who are willing to follow Jiang will have to go down with him.
The mission to safeguard the universal truth is being carried out by selfless and courageous enlightened beings. The 14-year-long on-going contest between good and evil, the righteous and the wicked, has gradually divided mankind into two camps: one represents the righteous group that supports Falun Gong practitioners, and the other is represented by Jiang Zemin, the 610 Office and vicious police thugs.
With the increasing number of people signing petitions against the persecution, with thousands of fingerprints from people to rescue Falun Gong practitioners and the huge wave of people quitting the CCP and its associated organizations, the group of people with a sense of justice is becoming larger and larger while the evil dens are being disintegrated one after another. Evil beings are meeting with their due retributions one after another. Their desperate madness cannot save them from destruction; furthermore, it will only lead them into the gate of no life and they will suffer in utter agony till their complete elimination.
Good will be rewarded with good and evil met with evil. Do not refuse to do good things even though they appear trivial. Do not do bad things even though they seem small. Treating others with kindness is being kind to yourself, while harming others is harming yourself. For your own sake, stand with the good people and treat others with kindness!
