1 Heaven and the human world have different values. Worldly people value wealth and power whereas the divine values merits, virtues, and the achievement of the Dao cultivation.
2 Each person has his own temperament. The higher the level of cultivation he practices, the less worldliness there is in him. Only those who purify their hearts and control their desires can possess the appearance and disposition of the Dao essence.
3 Strivers of the Lord of Universe Church must purify their hearts and lessen their desires, rectify their minds, and make their will sincere, and set a personal example in order to help themselves and others.
4 While cultivating the Dao, there are going to be unavoidable trials and tribulations. Where there are trials and tribulations, there are opportunities for one to break through and advance his cultivation of the Dao. Therefore, do not fear these tests. Face any challenges with an everyday mind.
5 Calamities are man-made. They begin with thoughts. Averting calamities and rescuing begin with changing people’s hearts.
6 Without the existence of the devil, there is no attainment of the Dao. The devil begins with one’s desires. When one can face the challenges of trials and tribulations, he can attain the Dao.
7 All desires rise from the heart; all obstacles begin in the heart. To defeat his devil, one must begin by controlling his own heart.
8 The devil mind is all about wealth and sex. Only when one has determination and wisdom can he avoid being influenced by them.
9 Only the power of reflection and repentance can help a person eliminate his own demonic hindrances and obstacles.
10 When one has no selfish desires and is filled with righteous qi, he can stand proudly between heaven and earth, and overcome devils from heaven, earth, and hell.
11 Only when one has no fear of trials and tribulations can he understand the workings of Heaven and follow its Dao.
12 Only when you choose to live with the Lord of Universe Church, you will be able to make the Church your home and make the universe your home.
13 The Dao of God emphasizes that one should fulfill his human Dao [worldly obligations] first and then cultivate the heavenly Dao.
14 Do understand clearly, that the purpose of cultivation is not to make you successful, but rather, to save the world and its people.
15 Strivers should have the spirit of making initiatives, be self-motivated, and self- disciplined. It will suffice if you can have a clear conscience each day before God.
15 同奮應有自動、自發、自律的精神，對 上帝但求每日無愧我心，可矣！
16 To the Chinese, the anthro-celestial union is the ultimate realm of spiritual cultivation. It is also the highest goal of cultivation for strivers of the Church.
17 The main reason of the revival of the Lord of Universe Church is for its unique temporal missions: holocaust-rescuing and saving persons of affinity.
18 Strengthen your sense of hardship. Cultivate the righteous qi of heaven and earth, and enhance the sense of your calling.
19 Humans should make the universe their home and carry out the three strivings: strive within oneself, strive toward nature, and strive toward heaven.
20 The Lord of Universe Church is a church of the universe. It does not discriminate against anyone, nor is it conservative. It intends to unite forces from other religions and together save persons of affinity.
21 Make great unbounded vows. Hold eternity as your great aspiration.
22 Only sincerity will receive response and proof. Reflecting and repenting daily is a manifestation of sincerity.
23 Not looking for what one can gain, not seeking one’s own blessings. Strive with a single thought: for all the living beings of this world.
24 To cultivate the Dao one must first begin with cultivating oneself, as the Dao is not outside of oneself; and it must begin by correcting the heart, as the Dao resides in one’s heart.
25 To cultivate the Dao is to learn to emulate the saints and sages. To worship God is to emulate the spirits of the divine beings in order to save the world and its people.
26 To cultivate the Dao requires one to endure trials and tribulations. Do not aim too high and think yourself superior to others.
27 A Dao cultivator needs to do what others dare not do and speak what others are afraid to say, in order to change the social atmosphere.
28 The fame and wealth that you have acquired in this life cannot go with you when you depart from this world. Only your sins, merits, and the result of self-cultivation (achievement of quiet sitting) will go with you.
29 Saving oneself and others requires action.
30 Only when one cultivates righteous qi can he coordinate with the divine spirits to accomplish his ideals.
31 The divine beings, saints, and perfected beings in heaven cannot make any human become one of them, nor can they stop any human from becoming one of them.
32 “I control my own destiny.” It requires us to have a fearless spirit when striving within ourselves.
33 Practice [of quiet sitting] is built up little by little over time.
34 “Being extraordinary” requires one to have the courage and resolution that ordinary people do not have.
35 While having great aspiration is important to intellectuals, cultivators of the Dao value making big vows.
36 All strivers of the Lord of Universe Church are inseparable from the entire human race. When there are human beings, there are strivers of the Church; where there are strivers, there is I.
37 Strivers need to strive continuously for the future of the entire human race, for their country, and for the Church. The best activity to extend the life of the world and its people is to pray for them, and pray for the country and its society.
