1 In the course of life, people are “thrashing about through reincarnations” in order to survive, and they may or may not be aware that they have accumulated a great deal of karmic debts, which may include evil karmic debts.
2 A phrase says: “do not do any evil acts but do only good acts.” However, there are many people that think for themselves only, and do all kinds of bad things. That is why after they were born, they have no way to return to heaven. They cycle repeatedly in hell as they have no way to eliminate their evil karmic debts. This is what we call the “self-inflicted consequences of sin.”
3 In the human world, the rule of “those who kill, let them be killed; those who owe, let them pay it back” applies to those who do evil things. According to heavenly laws, these people will also receive punishment from the nonphysical realm.
4 The evil karmic debts that have accumulated from past reincarnations are the same as carrying over a “balance due,” which must ultimately be fully paid. Although you have been initiated into the Lord of Universe Church and have completed the Chinese Original Quiet Sitting class, if you are still encumbered with karmic debts you cannot finish your work in this life and reach perfection.
5 You have to finish paying old debts and avoid creating new ones. Once all your debts are fully paid you will be free from debts and return to your true self.
