246. Being a Church Staff Member Is Doing the Actual Work of Saving the World and Its People
1 Strivers are holocaust-rescuing missionaries. You shoulder the missions of holocaust-rescuing and preaching. Based on our church organization system, each of you has a designated position for holocaust- rescuing and preaching work.
2 In order to give everyone an opportunity to be involved, each Church Hall and Chapel sets up positions for preaching work so that most preaching officers could be directly involved in the work of saving the world and its people.
3 Once a Chapel or a Hall is operational, church staff members can assume different duties, based on their personal talents and specialties. Submit your commitment form to the nonphysical force in the luminorium and vow that you will accept the mission of saving the world and rescuing people from calamities. This is a very noble and honorable job.
4 The Church Doctrine has clearly defined all church duties. Nonetheless, some who accepted positions did not know exactly what to do. Only when one becomes fully involved in his work can one really know what his duties are and fulfill them.
5 When he looks within himself and knows that he did not perform his duties, he also knows that he did not earn any merits. He can resign from his duties and be pardoned by the Church and by the nonphysical side as long as his conscience is clear and it is beyond his ability to earn a living, care for his family and attend to his career while holding the responsibility of being a preacher.
6 Yet, some strivers hold such positions which they fail to fulfill and yet refuse to resign from those duties. By refusing to resign, they are blocking missionary work opportunities for latecomers.
