Explain the Facts about Falun Gong Thoroughly and Rationally
(Minghui.org) As the Fa-rectification moves forward rapidly, we practitioners are supposed to let go of all human attachments and overcome interference in order to help Master offer salvation to people by telling them the truth about Falun Gong.
The practitioners where I live go out every day to busy areas in the city to explain the truth about the persecution to people and try to persuade them to sever their ties with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I treat everyone with compassion and try to help them to see the beauty of the wonderful practice of Falun Gong.
One day by a busy roadside, one practitioner talked with a 60-year-old man, while another practitioner and I were handing out flyers to passersby. After a while, we decided to join in on their conversation.
As we approached them, the practitioner told us that she had failed to persuade the man to withdraw from the CCP organizations because they had different opinions, especially on the topic of the war against Japan led by the CCP.
I realized that the converstaion had gone astray. After a short discussion among ourselves, we told the man that it was his choice whether or not to withdraw from the CCP.
The man became enraged and started to rail at us for wasting his time. At that critical moment, I asked Master Li for his blessing. Then I pulled myself together and said, “Please accept our sincere apology if we have offended you. Since you seem to be a good man, we don’t want to leave you with a negative impression of Falun Gong. We are concerned about your future safety, so would you please allow me to say a little more?”
It seemed he had no objection, so I said, “Falun Gong is the Buddha Law.”
His tired eyes brightened when he heard this, so I went on: “It’s well known that, in the 24 years since Master Li Hongzhi first taught the Fa in 1992, Falun Gong has spread to over 100 countries. Only in China has it been cruelly persecuted.”
I asked him, “Do you know why former CCP leader Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Falun Gong 17 years ago?”
He shook his head, so I continued: “It stemmed from his fear and jealousy over the popularity of the practice. Jiang ordered the Party to eradicate Falun Gong by ruining practitioner's reputations, bankrupting them, and destroying them physically. He then ultimately sanctioned the killing of practitioners for their organs.
“We love our country, but not the Party. It has brought untold disaster to our nation.
“Believe it or not, a catastrophy is looming that will bring the CCP rule to an end. Those who are members of the Party, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers will be the scapegoats when this happens. The time left for people to quit the CCP is limited, so it’s wise to do it as soon as possible.”
Apparently my words had a profound effect on him. He took a truth-clarifying journal and an amulet from me. “I know you are a good man,” I said. “Please read the journal carefully. I would like to give you the pseudonym ‘Awakening’ to help you make a public declaration to withdraw from the CCP. Is that OK?”
He nodded without hesitation.
I realize that telling people about Falun Gong with righteous thoughts is our sacred mission. It is imperative to stick to the path and try not to go astray in the process. We should not waste our time arguing with those whom we are trying to save. Only when we explain the truth logically and thoroughly can we save people. They really are waiting to hear the truth about Falun Gong.
