(Minghui.org) I met a senior official at a supermarket and advised him to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations to ensure his own safety. When he heard about Falun Dafa, he asked me immediately, “How much do you earn if you recruit one member?” I replied with a smile, “We are not recruiting new members nor asking for a penny. We are just volunteers, and sacrifice unselfishly. I am speaking to you only for your benefit.” He then asked, “Where is your Master?”

I continued, “Master is in America. He was invited to give lectures abroad by the Chinese Embassy in France in 1995. Since then, he has taught the Fa overseas. There are now Falun Dafa practitioners in over 100 countries.”

I could tell that this senior official was not intent on making trouble, but was listening to me very carefully.

“Master started teaching the Fa abroad in 1995,” I said, “and sometimes he returned to China to teach. Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Falun Dafa in July 1999, so how can people say that our Master escaped to America?”

He was thinking about what I said.

I said, “You witnessed the Cultural Revolution. If the order from the upper level was, ‘Down with Liu Shaoqi,’ we followed it, and then went even further to stomp with thousands of feet, never allowing him to overturn it. However, we never knew who he really was and what crimes he committed.” He nodded.

“In 1989, college students in Beijing started their pro-democracy demonstration and opposed corruption. Consequently, they were suppressed with guns and tanks. Even now, the CCP doesn’t admit how many people were killed during the Tiananmen Massacre, and people in China still don’t know the truth. When Jiang Zemin controlled the CCP, the corruption became even worse.

Starting in 1992, Master taught Falun Dafa. Its core principles are Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Millions of people improved their health and want to be good people. Jiang saw the number of Falun Dafa practitioners in China reach over 100 million within seven years, which outnumbered the CCP members. He thus launched the persecution and propaganda with fabricated stories. Consequently, many practitioners lost their lives, and their families were broken apart.

At this point, he said, “Yes, all of what you said is true.” He quit the CCP, and said he will remember, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

Restaurant Owner: “Yes. Everything You Said Is Correct”

One day when I was out walking, I talked with a restaurant owner. When he learned that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner, he tried to persuade me, “You should follow what the CCP said. See what a good job they have done.”

I asked, “What is good about it? All the money has gone into the leaders’ pockets. Because the CCP cares only about self promotion, people join the party for self-promotion, to make a fortune, or have a good job. Is the CCP really serving the people?” He agreed with me on that.

I continued, “The CCP talks about class struggle. They kill anyone they want to kill. We are people of China, not offsprings of Marx and Lenin. Our ancestors include Laozi, Confucius, and Mengzi; we believe harmony is precious. We treasure benevolence, justice, etiquette, wisdom, faith, as well as harmony between man and heaven. Falun Dafa emphasizes morality, and its core principles are Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. When there is a conflict, Falun Gong practitioners will look within; there is no enemy. The CCP emphasizes class struggle and eliminating class enemies. Since it took power in 1949, it has killed over 80 million Chinese people.”

“Do you think the CCP is a Party of killing? Isn’t it a heinous party? If man can’t punish it, heaven will. If you follow it, where will you end up? You will go with it to hell. You will be responsible for the wrongdoings it has committed. If you want to be safe, you should quit the CCP and its youth organizations. Don’t look only at the superficial level, The disaster is following us. Heaven is always giving us opportunities. It is not about how capable the CCP seems.”

He agreed, “Yes, you are correct.” He quit the CCP. I asked him to remember, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He said he would remember the phrases.

When we got to the entrance of his restaurant, he invited me to have lunch with him. I politely declined.
