1 As everybody knows, the mission of the Lord of Universe Church is to save the world from holocausts. The Church carries heavenly mandates with special temporal missions.
2 To accomplish the heavenly mandates, it is certain that we must rely on the collective spiritual force of all strivers, by following the three essentials:
2 我們確信，要完成 上帝所交付的使命，只有靠全體同奮精神力量的大集合，奉行三要：
3 (1) having absolute faith in God and swearing not to look for personal gain,
3 (1)絕對信賴 上帝，
4 (2) the willingness to sacrifice for saving all the living beings of this world, and
5 (3) carrying out God’s true Dao, praying and chanting the Orisons, living according to the “Code of Life,” cultivating righteous qi, and striving with resolution.
6 An adage [by Mencius] says: “if a country that does not have hostile states or external calamities, it will generally come to ruin.” Another one says: “life springs from sorrow and calamity, and death from ease and pleasure.”
7 We are fortunate to be born at this time, in this environment. We must save ourselves and save others. We must be vigilant at all times, and have a strong sense of hardship.
8 We need to reform our hearts, reflect and repent in a timely fashion to make our hearts honest and sincere so that we can face everyone in the world. Our righteous qi will grow, fortify, and be strengthened naturally.
9 I wish all of our strivers reinforce striving. Strive and strive again. Strive until all the nuclear wars are eliminated, and until the unification of China comes true under the guidance of the Three Principles of the People.
