Obtaining the Fa and Persuading People to Quit the CCP
(Minghui.org) I was born near the border of Guangdong and Jiangxi in 1994. It was not prosperous and was badly poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) culture. People there do not believe in anything beyond modern science and the concrete things they can see in the material world, nor do they believe in the existence of gods and Buddhas.
However, many interesting phenomena led me to question the nonexistence of higher beings.
Encountering Falun Dafa
I had a chance to visit a temple during my travels to Yiwu, Zhejiang Province in 2013. Not knowing any better, I did some profane things in front of the temple.
I had a very hard time in the following year. I couldn't find a job all year and wasted it away. This experience made me believe in divine retribution.
I started looking for a meaning to my life and exploring the truth about gods and Buddhas. I found some Christians who showed me their faith; I read the Bible, and felt that I truly believed in Jesus. However, even though I had identified as a Christian, I didn't want to go to church because I knew that churches in China were controlled and monitored by the CCP.
For a long time, I often searched online for resources about democracy and freedom, and came across Falun Dafa in a social media group. Back then, I thought that it was just an ordinary Qigong.
One day in December 2015, someone in the social media group posted a message that read, “You are not allowed to immigrate overseas if you are a CCP member, but you could immigrate overseas if you are a Dafa practitioner.”
I thought it would be great if I was able to immigrate overseas and break away from the CCP, so I decided that I would practice both Christianity and Qigong at the same time. At that time, I thought that there would be no problem with this arrangement.
I got an E-book version of Zhuan Falun. After reading it, I understood many principles, from the truth of universe to the purpose of life. As I practiced cultivation, I gradually found out the reason I came to this earth and the significance of my life. I became a Dafa practitioner.
Whenever I recalled my experience, I was deeply touched by Master's arrangements. In hindsight, Master had done so much just so that I could find Dafa.
Below I would like to share my experience of clarifying the truth to different religious groups.
Focusing on Persuading People to Quit the CCP and Making Them Understand Falun Dafa is Good
I often hear fellow practitioners debate with religious people about what is right or wrong. I think that this is unnecessary. Religious people are strongly attached to their own belief, so it's very difficult to communicate with them in that context.
In this Dharma-Ending Age, many religious people interpret their texts incorrectly. Since even their ways of thinking are not correct, it's quite difficult to change their thoughts.
We are not asking everyone to join us and practice Falun Dafa, so our priority is not to discuss things with people on the Fa. Instead, we should focus on persuading them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, and meanwhile, telling them that Falun Dafa is good.
Talking to Christians
As Christians tend to avoid politics, I usually open the conversation with Jesus.
I would say, “Jesus is a divine being. But what is the CCP? It advocates atheism and is against the divine. You've sworn to devote your life to the CCP, which means that you've sworn to devote your life to an atheist organization. Do you think Jesus would accept you?”
It also helps to discuss Christian principles.
“Jesus told us that people on earth should love and tolerate each other. But take a look at the CCP. It has been killing people. Is this what Jesus wants? The CCP is committing big crimes. Why don't you quit it?”
Finishing up with a tie back to their faith also helps.
“I believe that Jesus will protect you after you quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. ”
Talking to Buddhists
When I come across Buddhists, I would say, “Buddha wants to save all beings and does not allow killing, but the CCP has been killing so many people. Moreover, the CCP has destroyed so many Buddha statues and scriptures during the Cultural Revolution. It criticizes Buddhism as superstitious. But in fact, Buddha is divine and sacred. You've joined the CCP, such an evil organization. Do you think Buddha would not punish you if you continue staying on side of the CCP? Would it be all right if you do not quit it?”
Talking to Taoists
It's similar when I persuade Taoists to quit the CCP. I would mention how the CCP destroyed Taoist temples and killed Taoists during Cultural Revolution. I also made comparisons between compassion and evil.
Once the person agrees to quit the CCP, I would tell them what Falun Dafa is. If it's not convenient to explain in detail what Falun Dafa is, I would just ask them to “keep in mind Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Persuading People to Quit the CCP Even while Being Detained
When I was arrested in April 2017 by the local Domestic Security Division, I clearly felt that I was being attacked by the evil from other dimensions. Though I was not afraid of death at all, my legs still trembled spontaneously. It was apparent that there was interference from other dimensions.
I gradually calmed down by sending forth righteous thoughts. Though I was detained, I didn't forget to tell people the facts about Falun Dafa. I persuaded the inmates around me to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
I was released ten days later, with a name list of six inmates who agreed to quit the CCP.
Thank you, Master for protecting me all the way. I will practice genuine cultivation diligently and honor my prehistoric vows.
