44. Loving Your Country and Your Home Is Loving Your Roots
1 No religion can exist without heavenly mandates. In the Lord of Universe Church, there are: (1) a church doctrine that meets the needs of the time, (2) a Church Charter, the eternal foundation of the Church, (3) the derivation of the three specific missions of Yuling Shrine, and (4) the two great treasures: the Grand Orison and the Precious Orisons, for averting and dispelling nuclear holocausts and for securing Taiwan as the Base of Revival.
2 I have just talked about the three major missions of the Tianji Traveling Palace: (1) to save the world from the End Time of the Third Epoch, (2) to save people from destruction, and (3) to care for the future of all Chinese people and the future of our country.
3 Due to the fact that the Lord of Universe Church was revived in Taiwan, and our Church is one of the ten religions approved by the government of the Republic of China, we strivers must begin with loving our own country, which is to say that strivers should first love their own roots.
4 Regardless of what country you were born in, you should love that country in spite of its politics.
5 With our temporal missions, saving the world comes first and saving Taiwan comes second. This revival base is the root of Chinese race, and it is also the revival base for the Lord of Universe Church.
