When I was young, my parents often reminded me
not to speak too much outside the house.
They told me to speak pleasing words,
to avoid speaking too honestly as so as not to offend others.
They also told me stories of those who had suffered for speaking too honestly
in order to warn me.
At school, our teachers taught us things like
"Harmoniousness is a treasure, forbearance is a virtue,"
"When ignorance is bliss, it is foolish to be wise,"
"Compromise will make a conflict much easier to resolve,"
"Keeping silent on the faults of good friends makes for a long and good friendship," and so on.
I took these principles as rules to live by
and obeyed them with all my heart.
Naturally, over time,
these principles came to guide my behavior and ethics.
Whoever I talked to,
I was always cautious, observant, and careful not to offend.
I always tried to say something nice and flattering.
Our neighbors all liked me,
and often praised that I was a well-behaved, sensible boy,
which made me even more certain that this was the right way to conduct myself.
Becoming this sort of "good person" became my goal in life.
And then later on,
when I entered society, I never fought with others,
and never dared to offend others.
I cautiously maintained my relationships with everyone.
My way of life won everyone's praise and even their appreciation.
I also satisfied my vanity.
But inexplicably,
I always felt this way of life gave me immense pressure.
I felt no release or joy in it.
I never dared to open up to others and speak from the heart.
I was always afraid of saying the wrong thing, offending others, and breaking the peace.
Every day I felt as though I was living behind a false mask.
The more time passed,
the more I found living this way difficult and exhausting.
I would often think to myself,
"When will this bitterness end?
How can I live to feel freedom, release, joy, and happiness?"
Just as I was confused, suffering, and unable to find direction in life,
a relative told me about God's salvation in the last days.
Hello, Auntie!
Hi, Jian'guang.
Through reading Almighty God's word,
I learned that all things and creatures were created by God, including mankind,
and that God rules the fate of all mankind.
I also learned why people's lives contain so much bitterness,
how Satan corrupted mankind,
how, step by step, God saves mankind,
how people should live to be truly happy,
about people's final end and destination, and more.
I had never heard about these mysteries and truths.
Almighty God revealed all of life's mysteries,
which is something no person could ever do.
So, I decided that Almighty God is the true God
and accepted Almighty God's gospel of kingdom.
After that, I read God's word with an unquenchable thirst.
The more I read, the more clarity there was in my heart,
and the more I understood the truth.
In so many things where I previously lacked penetration,
I found answers in God's words.
God's word is indeed the truth, the way, and the life!
Especially where I read in God's word that:
Seeing that God has a faithful essence, that God likes honest people,
and that the honest rule in God's kingdom,
I exclaimed in my heart,
"This is the true light and true righteousness!"
If all people were honest,
and if everyone were pure and open in their relations with each other,
without suspicions or doubts,
life could be beautiful and filled with happiness.
I thought that living this way could give people true freedom and release,
and so, I longed for that kind of life.
After joining church life,
I saw that my brothers and sisters were all pure and open,
and that they treated each other sincerely.
At meetings, they could fellowship freely.
If anyone exposed any corruption
or had any views or opinions about another person,
they could all fellowship openly
and analyze and come to know their own corruption.
When I saw all this, it left me surprised.
According to how I learned to behave,
if you had views or opinions about another person, or saw someone made a mistake,
you couldn't state these things out loud.
I thought speaking the truth would offend others and harm myself.
But in The Church of Almighty God,
the more you were an honest person and spoke the truth,
the more your brothers and sisters praised and supported you.
If you always schemed and tried to please everyone,
God and people alike would despise you,
and in the end you would be unable to stand firm, and be eliminated by God.
I understood clearly:
That my brothers and sisters could practice and live this way
was entirely the result of the work of Almighty God.
I swore an oath to myself:
I would properly believe in God, pursue the truth, and be an honest person.
In the blink of an eye, three years passed.
In a church election,
our brothers and sisters chose me and Brother Zhang as church leaders.
Brother Zhang was older than me,
and often took care of me and helped me.
We got along very well.
But in this duty, I realized he was arrogant and self-important,
and tended to do things arbitrarily.
When issues came up,
he didn't seek the truth in God's word or act according to principle.
Sometimes our brothers and sisters brought it up,
saying doing things in this way was inappropriate,
but he stood by his own opinions and didn't accept others' advice.
While seeing this behavior in Brother Zhang, I thought,
"Isn't doing his duties like this arrogant, self-important, arbitrary, and reckless?
If this continues, he will definitely disrupt and disturb church work at some point.
This also brings no benefit to his entry into life."
Several times, I wanted to point it out to him,
to find portions of God's word that address his problem and fellowship with him,
but when the words were on the tip of my tongue, I swallowed them.
I was terrified that if I brought it up, he wouldn't accept it,
that he would say I had no conscience.
He had treated me so well,
and I still had opinions about him and picked at his problems.
If Brother Zhang developed a bias against me,
and if we couldn't be partners in fulfilling our duties, what then?
And so, in order to protect my relationship with Brother Zhang,
and to protect my own vanity and my own interests,
I never brought it up with him.
When other brothers and sisters reported Brother Zhang's work as arrogant and reckless,
and our superiors came to ask about the situation,
I didn't dare speak the truth.
Instead, I said, "He does fine. I haven't seen any serious problems,"
and similar things to cover up the issue.
Later, as Brother Zhang continued to follow his own ideas,
ignoring principles of the truth in his duties,
which led to disrupting and disturbing the church's work,
he was dismissed.
I was also given different duties for not doing practical work.
One day, I went to Brother Zhang's home,
and his wife spoke frankly and exposed me.
Brother Cheng, there's something I need to say to you.
Oh, go right ahead.
You understand more of the truth than my husband.
You realized that he did things without principle and against the truth.
Why didn't you point it out to him and try to help him?
If you had pointed it out and tried to help him in a loving manner,
even if he had been dealt with, exposed, and analyzed,
he might not have been so negligent and reckless in his duties,
and caused disruption and disturbance to the church's work. (That's right.)
Brother Cheng,
I often hear you fellowship at meetings to be considerate of God's will,
to fulfill our duties with all our heart to satisfy God,
and to be an honest person.
But in real life,
why don't you practice the truth and protect the work of the church?
Why do you try to please others and protect your own interests?
You fear offending people,
but you don't fear offending God?
Aren't you harming the church and our brothers and sisters?
Sister Fang's words made me too ashamed to face myself.
I wanted to find a hole and bury myself.
As I left Brother Zhang's home,
I felt miserable and also wronged.
Never in my life had someone so accused and exposed me.
As I suffered, I prayed to God:
God, today Sister Fang accused and exposed me.
Although I know You approved of this and meant well by it,
that this is Your judgment and chastisement of me,
I find it hard to accept.
I feel wronged.
God, please enlighten and illuminate me.
Make me understand my corruption and also Your will.
Help me to learn lessons from this.
Amen!
After I prayed, calm gradually returned to my heart.
I saw these passages in God's word:
Awareness finally hit me after I read God's words.
Wasn't God's word revealing the essence of those who always strive to please others?
I felt hopelessly humiliated and ashamed.
Thinking back on how I performed my duties with Brother Zhang,
so many times I saw him be arbitrary and betray the truth,
arrogant and self-important, and never accepted brothers' and sisters' advice.
At the time, I was already aware how dangerous this was
to God's chosen people gaining entry into life.
I knew it disturbed and disrupted the church's work,
but I pretended not to see it.
I didn't expose or report this practical problem to church leadership,
I didn't protect the church's work.
Later, when someone wrote a report to expose Brother Zhang
and my superiors came to ask me about Brother Zhang's problems,
I lied to cover up the truth.
I was afraid that I would offend Brother Zhang and harm my own interests.
Looking at all I had done and thought,
I realized it was all to maintain my relations with others
and follow the principle of not hurting others' feelings.
I hadn't kept a place for God's requirements,
the responsibilities of my duty, or the work of God's house in my heart at all,
and I had in fact known the truth without practicing it.
I was so selfish, so despicable, so cunning!
What I did not only harmed Brother Zhang,
I had influenced church work,
and delayed God's chosen people's entry into life.
This was enough to prove I was not someone who practiced the truth.
Even less was I someone who obeyed God,
considered God's will, or was loyal to fulfilling God's trust.
The essence of my actions was an expression of trampling upon the truth,
rebelling against God, and resisting God.
The more I thought, the more I despised myself.
In my sadness, I asked myself:
Why could I treat other people with such conscientiousness and love, but not God?
Why could I love other people, but not God?
What was the problem with that?
I thought of how the Pharisees appeared pious
and loving toward people on the outside,
but when the Lord came to do His work and express the truth,
even though they admitted the authority and power of the Lord's words,
they still judged and condemned Him and treated Him with enmity,
and were cursed by the Lord.
The Lord Jesus exposed the hypocritical essence of the Pharisees,
I understood the truth but didn't practice it,
and always tried to please others.
No matter what harm came to God's chosen people or the church's work,
I paid it no mind.
How were my actions any different from those of the Pharisees?
Was I not also a hypocrite who deceived others and resisted God?
I remembered a passage from God's word:
Was I not precisely the wicked, cunning evildoer revealed in God's word?
What I pursued was friendliness and compatibility with people,
but not with God.
I did not practice God's word or submit to God,
but instead protected my own interests.
I saw the church's work suffering,
and rather than speak up or do something about it,
I kept silent and tried to preserve myself.
I was nothing but a hypocrite!
I finally understood.
The standard of whether someone is a good person
is not how they treat others or how their outward behavior appears,
it is their attitude toward the truth, and their attitude toward God.
This is the most fundamental and most important standard.
What I had believed to be a "good person" wasn't that at all.
It was a pleaser, someone cunning, a hypocritical Pharisee,
precisely the kind of person God loathes and curses.
I swore an oath to myself:
I would pursue the truth,
never again live by the worldly philosophies of Satan,
completely forsake Satan, utterly submit to God,
live by God's word, be an honest person, and earn God's approval!
Through the judgment and chastisement in God's words,
I gained some understanding of my own corruption,
but because my satanic corruption ran too deep,
I still lacked true penetration into and hatred of
my cunning nature and essence of a pleaser,
and my life disposition had not truly changed.
Before long, my problem occurred again.
Sister Liu, a church member, had a husband with an evil humanity,
who obstructed and suppressed her for believing in God.
When he saw Sister Liu leaving for church meetings or to perform her duties,
he caused trouble for other brothers and sisters.
Once, Sister Liu's husband even destroyed a brother's shop.
The interference of Sister Liu's husband
made it impossible for any of the brothers and sisters to feel ease.
Considering the bigger picture,
the church leader asked Sister Liu to stop attending meetings for a time,
take care of her situation at home,
and maintain her spiritual life by reading God's words.
But after a while,
Sister Liu missed meetings with brothers and sisters.
She went to Sister Wang's house to demand to be allowed to attend.
Sister Wang didn't know what to do,
so she came to me to discuss it.
I thought:
Sister Liu's husband was capable of nearly any wicked deed.
If Sister Liu came to meetings,
once her husband found out,
our other brothers and sisters would be at risk.
It seemed best to put the church's interests first,
so I thought Sister Liu should forego meetings for now.
But then another thought occurred to me:
I was no longer a church leader.
If my arrangements were wrong,
what would my brothers and sisters say about me?
How would the church leaders see me?
Beyond that,
if Sister Liu found out I was the one who prevented her from attending meetings,
wouldn't she blame me?
With those thoughts in my mind,
I said in a very roundabout way to Sister Wang,
"I'm not sure what to do about this.
Why don't we ask the church leaders?"
But after that,
Sister Wang couldn't find a church leader to discuss it with,
so out of kindness, she let Sister Liu attend meetings.
Unfortunately, when Sister Liu left for the meeting,
she was followed by her husband.
When her husband saw her attending a meeting at Sister Wang's home,
he called the police.
The result was that church members at the meeting were arrested by the CCP police.
Other brothers and sisters were implicated as well,
and some had to flee from their homes.
I felt deep regret after that happened.
If I had upheld principle, protected the church's interests,
insisted that Sister Liu stay home and handle her situation,
none of this would have ever happened.
Instead, in order to protect my own vanity and personal interests,
I practiced cunning instead of the truth,
and brought down a terrible disaster on my brothers and sisters in the church.
The more I thought, the more I hated myself.
I prayed to God to repent.
Afterward, I read this in God's word:
God's words had pierced me through my heart.
My blame for myself tormented me,
and I felt deep regret.
I knew clearly that Sister Liu's husband was an evildoer,
capable of any manner of wickedness,
and that it would endanger brothers and sisters if Sister Liu attended meetings.
I should have fellowshiped with Sister Liu,
told her to think of the bigger picture,
to stay at home and take care of her situation there,
to ensure the safety of our brothers and sisters,
but I was afraid that saying it directly would upset and offend her.
When I discovered this problem, I simply dodged and avoided it.
I passed it like a ball to the church leaders to deal with,
causing us to miss the opportunity to deal with it,
in the end, causing brothers and sisters to be reported by an evildoer and arrested,
seriously impacting the church's work.
I swore my loyalty to God with every word,
yet hid my eyes like a coward when the moment came.
I lived by principles of satanic logic such as
"Let things adrift if they do not affect one personally,"
"The less trouble, the better,"
and "Though you see wrong, it's best to say little."
I carefully maintained my relationships with my brothers and sisters,
afraid that upholding the principles of truth would offend others
and leave them with a bad impression of me.
I viewed my relationships with others as more important than the truth.
I put my own interests above the church's and the tasks God had entrusted to me.
I lived purely for myself,
and without realizing it, I became a servant of Satan.
I gave the CCP devils a chance to arrest God's chosen people,
leading to the arrest and torture of my brothers and sisters,
and the destruction of church life.
How could I call this fulfilling my duties?
Was I not precisely the fox
who steals grapes to eat and tramples the vineyard revealed in God's word?
Someone as crooked, cunning, selfish, and despicable as myself
could only bring harm to my brothers and sisters and disaster to the church.
If I didn't repent, in any matter, at any time,
I might rebel against God, resist God, offend God's disposition,
and earn God's punishment!
I finally saw clearly
that being good as a pleaser made me no good at all.
I was nothing but an accomplice and servant of Satan.
All I said and did brought disruption and disturbance to the church's work.
Thinking of the harm I had done to the church's work,
and the disaster I had brought upon my brothers and sisters,
repentance and regret immediately welled up in my heart.
I felt I was unworthy of living before God.
I wanted only to repent to God and make a new man of myself.
In the days that followed,
to resolve my problem of always trying to please others,
I went before God many times to pray and reflect:
Why I always, without realizing it,
tried to please others and protect my personal interests?
What was the root of this problem?
How does God view pleasers?
What is the essence and ending of pleasers?
How could I stop being a pleaser,
and become an honest person who upholds the truth and righteousness?
At a meeting, I raised these problems
and fellowshiped about them with my brothers and sisters.
I sought answers in God's word.
Brother Cheng, the problem you've raised is one that exists in all of us. (Yes.)
So today, let's seek and fellowship on this problem.
Wonderful! Praise be to God!
This is a question we absolutely need fellowship on. (Alright.)
Then let's start by looking at several passages of God's word. (Good!)
That's true! It is. Very true.
Now I'll read a passage. (Okay.)
God's words are so practical!
Our satanic dispositions are what makes it impossible for us to be honest people.
Yes. God truly sees all in the hearts of man.
I'll read the next passage. (Alright.)
Amen.
Brothers and sisters, we've finished reading God's word.
Almighty God has revealed the truth of the depth of mankind's corruption by Satan.
Why do people so often lie,
attempt to be cunning, scheme, strive for fame and benefits,
kill one another, and work only for their own interests,
making the world a dark and evil place?
For thousands of years,
no person has ever been able to see the root and essence of this problem. (Yes.)
After reading Almighty God's word,
we have insight to these problems.
Thank God!
God's word is the truth and is reality.
Indeed.
Think back on our childhood. We were all pure and innocent.
We replied honestly to adults,
and there was no deceit in our hearts. (Right.)
But after we went to school,
all the things we studied were satanic rules of survival,
as well as mistaken views like Confucianism,
which were the materials in our textbooks. (Right.)
Things like "Men are not saints; how can they be free from faults?"
"Harmony is a treasure, forbearance a virtue,"
"Compromise will make a conflict much easier to resolve,"
"Impatience in small matters upsets great plans,"
"Speak in harmony with others' feelings and reason, as being frank annoys others."
What other phrases can you think of? (I know, I know.)
"Keeping silent on the faults of good friends makes for a long and good friendship,"
and "Never slap other people in the face or scold them for their shortcomings."
That's right. (Right.)
"The tallest nail gets hammered down," "A gentleman never fights back,"
"Silence is golden, speech is silver."
And "Stay quiet for self-protection and seek only to escape blame."
Also, "Think thrice in all things, for he who speaks most loses." (Right.)
And "Though you see wrong, it's best to say little."
That's right. Right.
It looks like these evil sayings and absurd theories come in countless varieties. (Yes.)
These principles of satanic logic are instilled deep in our hearts
when we were children,
and they deceive and poison generation after generation,
filling the hearts of all mankind with darkness,
making them speak and act without principle or reason,
not knowing right from wrong, what to love and hate,
lose their sense of truth,
and turning them into pleasers. (Yes.)
Most people walk a path of moderation,
and try not to offend anyone.
They're indifferent when they see evildoers abuse honest people.
They withdraw in fear when they see those in power oppressing people. (It's true.)
When they see evil run rampant and darkness hold power,
they look away and turn a blind eye.
When they are abused and exploited,
they hold their tongues and resign themselves to it.
That's true.
As long as they have food to eat,
they endure any ignominy and dare not to oppose tyranny.
And sometimes,
they even bare their necks and beg their opposers for mercy!
What kind of society is this!
No one upholds righteousness,
nor do they dare speak the truth, do real work, or fight for what is right.
Everyone simply lies, deceives, and follows evil trends,
thereby creating entire societies and nations populated by liars.
Right.
This allows us to see
the results, the consequences if everyone tries to be a pleaser.
Are those who always try to please others good people?
No!
That's because there are so many pleasers in this society
that evildoers can run amok,
good people can be abused and oppressed without hope of protection!
That's exactly right.
Pleasers only exacerbate and spread around
the problems of evil and darkness in the world.
Right.
So, doesn't that make pleasers accomplices of the forces of evil and darkness?
Pleasers are nothing but Satan's accomplices!
Yeah!
If this is how pleasers express themselves in society,
how do they express themselves once they believe in God?
Actually, that's how pleasers behave in the church as well.
They fear offending others, so they don't speak the truth.
Even when they see deficiencies in others,
they don't help others out of love.
If they see someone spread evil words and absurd theories, disrupting church life,
they don't dare stop them.
If they encounter false leaders and antichrists,
they don't dare report or expose them.
Can pleasers of this sort ever truly perform their duties?
Can they ever partner peacefully with others? (No.)
Can they really uphold the principles of truth?
Can they ever sincerely treat others with love?
Can they ever sincerely help and supply others?
Can they ever practice the truth and submit to God?
Can they consider God's will and genuinely love God?
Can they exalt and testify for God?
Can they accept tasks from God or follow God's will?
They can't accomplish any of this. (Right. That's right.)
So then, tell me, what kind of people are pleasers?
Looked at that way,
pleasers are the most sly, cunning, and sinister of people!
Yes, that's right.
Yes!
Pleasers do not understand the truth,
and even if they do, they can't practice it.
And so, can pleasers ever truly pursue the truth and attain salvation?
It's very difficult.
You can't accomplish anything without pursuing the truth.
If you don't accept the truth,
you can't be purified or attain salvation.
These pleasers live by satanic philosophies, and have no truth at all.
They can never gain God's approval.
That's right.
Pleasers don't pursue the truth, so they can only be eliminated.
Exactly. Yeah.
Through our reading of Almighty God's words,
we have gained penetration into the cunning essence of pleasers.
We are all clear pleasers have no sense of righteousness.
If a pleaser sees evildoers run amok, he fears to expose them,
fears to help when a good person is being harmed.
When he sees God's chosen people deceived,
suppressed, and controlled by antichrists,
he doesn't get involved, he plays deaf and dumb
and does not expose or report it.
And if someone else reports and exposes the problem,
the pleaser lies to cover up the truth.
What problem does this show?
Pleasers seem to do no great evil when looked at from outside.
They don't offend others with their words and seem to be good,
but they are more skilled than anyone at sailing with the wind,
playing their part in the moment, following situations, and groveling.
In essence, they are sly and quite cunning.
Yes, that's right.
Pleasers never stand at the side of God,
never consider the interests of God's house.
They never protect God's work
or consider the life of God's chosen people.
They aren't responsible for the tasks God gives them.
Their morals and attitudes are built upon the worldly philosophies of Satan,
which is to protect and preserve themselves in all things,
and to live only for their own interests and gains.
They never practice the truth or submit to God.
They are never loyal to God in their duties.
Instead, they always muddle through.
They never pursue the truth,
and are only concerned with gaining blessings.
Can one attain salvation by believing in God this way?
No. Absolutely not.
So tell me,
are pleasers people who belong to God, or do they belong to Satan?
They belong to Satan. Their hearts are not turned to God.
We can use the recent arrest of our brothers and sisters as an example.
We all knew Sister Liu's husband was an evildoer,
and that Sister Liu shouldn't be attending meetings,
but because we were afraid of offending her,
we knew the problem and didn't deal with it,
which gave the CCP devils an opportunity to take advantage,
arresting our brothers and sisters and destroying church life.
Wasn't this all caused by us trying too hard to please others? (Yes. Right.)
It's worth thinking very hard
about the consequences of trying to please others all the time.
If we all try to be pleasers, we could say
that most things we do will have a disrupting and disturbing nature,
and bring no benefit or help at all to others.
Instead, we harm our brothers and sisters and bring disaster on the church.
So, pleasers are not good people at all.
Because they often conceal themselves,
show others a false image,
and are deceptive and disingenuous,
they are never easy for others to see.
Others always think they're good people,
but pleasers are actually sly and cunning.
They belong entirely to Satan.
Yes. That's right. Exactly.
It's just as God says:
Thanks be to God!
Now we finally know how to discern the essence of pleasers.
They are not good people at all; they are cunning.
Exactly, they belong to Satan. (Yes.)
I intend to practice the truth and forsake Satan.
I can't allow myself to be a pleaser again.
Yes, exactly. Amen! Thanks be to God!
Brothers and sisters,
we have been corrupted by Satan
and are under the bondage of our satanic nature.
We helplessly tend to act like pleasers when we interact.
Yes.
We try to protect our own interests and fear offending others. (Right.)
Now we can see clearly that pleasers do not delight God,
and they can never attain salvation. (Yes.)
If we want to resolve the problem of being a pleaser,
we must accept the truth, and be honest,
and live by God's word,
and resolve the satanic philosophies and Confucian theories of being a pleaser.
Only then, after doing that, can we gain freedom and release.
Yes, this is a path to practice.
So now, how should we practice and enter the truth of being an honest person?
Let's look at more passages of God's word. (Alright.)
Now let's turn to page 36. (Okay. Let's do that.)
I'll read this one.
That was such a good reading.
Thanks be to God!
God's word has given us a direction in life and a path to practice good conduct.
Now, our hearts are clear, and there is a route before us.
Thanks be to God!
God is righteous.
God is trustworthy,
and so, God likes and saves the honest,
loathes and detests the cunning.
In the Age of Grace,
Amen!
In the Age of Kingdom,
Almighty God speaks even more clearly:
Amen!
That was wonderful!
Through fellowship on God's word, we can clearly see
that pleasers are no other than cunning people. (Exactly. Yes. Right.)
If such people do not repent and change, what will their ending be?
They will be eliminated. (Yes, that's true.)
Now let's look at what it says in God's word.
Okay. Great. Yeah.
That's right.
God requires that we pursue the truth, be honest people,
and escape from the sly, cunning philosophy of Satan,
which is critically important to becoming honest people. (That's right.)
Only by being honest people can we attain salvation.
God loathes pleasers.
Pleasers will only be eliminated by God. (Yes. Right.)
Thanks be to God!
Today's fellowship has been wonderful!
We received God's guidance. (Yeah, that's right.)
Now my heart feels clear and light.
Thanks be to God!
Now I understand, I always tried so hard to please others,
I was unable to practice the truth,
because I have been corrupted too deeply by Satan.
I was poisoned by Satan's toxins in the books I read when I was young.
Satanic ideas like "Men are not saints;
how can they be free from faults?"
"Though you see wrong, it's best to say little,"
"Protect yourself, seek only to escape blame,"
and "Harmoniousness is a treasure, forbearance a virtue,"
the poison of these satanic philosophical principles crept deeply into my heart
and became my nature.
For so many years,
I have been living by this satanic philosophy,
which has led me to always protect my personal interests
and fear offending others.
No matter who I interact with,
I am always cautious and behave to please them.
I am even deceitful and cunning with my own family.
I also deeply admired the worldly men called great for their shrewdness.
This not only stopped me from living out the likeness of a normal man,
it made me more and more selfish, despicable, sly, and cunning,
and caused me to lose my conscience.
Thanks to our fellowship, I see clearly
that these principles of satanic philosophy are absurd and evil.
They are enemies of God's word and the truth.
Satanic philosophy and logical principles are purely negative things.
These are things that Satan uses to corrupt mankind.
Living by this satanic philosophy
caused me to be unable to discern what is good and evil,
and made me a sly person, without a sense of justice.
I can see now
that the "good person" I tried to be wasn't a good person at all.
I was a cunning person who resists and betrays God.
If I don't repent, pursue the truth, and become an honest person,
I will be loathed and eliminated by God.
Now I finally understand.
God judged and chastised me this way
because of all of His good intentions for me. (Right.)
It was His way of saving and blessing me! (Right.)
Thanks be to God!
I have really gained a lot from our fellowship today.
Now I have penetration into the cunning nature and essence of pleasers.
Thanks be to God! (That's right.)
We need to pursue being an honest person according to God's requirements
in order to attain God's approval.
Thanks be to God!
Through fellowship on God's word,
I gained penetration into the nature and essence of pleasers,
and the dangers and consequences of being one.
So, I swore an oath to God:
I would pursue the truth
escape the bondage and constraints of the principles of satanic logic,
and be an honest person according to God's words.
After that, I went to perform my duty in a church.
I discovered a church leader
who often spoke in rote letters and doctrine during fellowship.
She never spoke of her own experience and testimony of practicing God's word,
couldn't use the truth to resolve the difficulties
her brothers and sisters faced in gaining entry into life,
and often lectured and constrained others from her position,
which put the brothers and sisters under her constraints,
and made them afraid to fellowship openly.
Based on the principles of discerning false leaders,
I realized she was a false leader without the realities of truth.
But once I had decided to report the situation to the superiors,
I hesitated:
This church was outside the scope of my responsibilities.
If I reported on the problems of the church leader here,
would they say I was being nosy?
Then, God's words enlightened me:
God's word was like a heavy mallet, imprinting each line in my heart.
I felt the urgency in God's will,
His hope for people to practice the truth,
to carry out His will, to protect His work,
to have the courage to defy the forces of Satan and take responsibility,
to not weigh or consider their own interests,
to put the interests of the church first and stand firm and testify for God.
Upon understanding God's will,
I had the courage to practice the truth.
I wrote the letter to inform the superiors of the situation.
Afterward, the superiors investigated,
determined that she was a false leader,
and dismissed her.
God's chosen people no longer suffered the constraints of this false leader,
and gained freedom and release.
When I heard the news,
I felt a great sense of peace and comfort.
I realized that it was good to be an honest person!
In my experiences of believing in God,
even though I experienced judgment, chastisement, and trials,
I have also come to understand much truth,
gained penetration into many matters.
Thinking of this, I am overcome with emotion.
The depth of mankind's corruption causes the world to be in evil and darkness.
I believed I was a good person,
but finally, through God's word,
I saw the true face of the pleaser that I was.
I had been corrupted by satanic philosophy and satanic principles of logic.
Without experiencing the judgment and chastisement in God's word,
I would not be purified.
Almighty God has saved me.
The truth expressed by Almighty God has caused change in my life disposition.
I deeply feel that experiencing God's work of the last days
is God's great exaltation and blessing for me.
I am truly very lucky.
I have finally received God's salvation in the last days
and entered the right path in life!
Almighty God's word is the true light,
the light of a new era.
This light has appeared in the East and illuminates the whole world!
Thanks be to Almighty God!
