    Get deceived rather than deceive, get harmed rather than harm

    You have to live in this world according to the instructions of the Lord. Regarding your life in this world, the essence of His instruction is that, you should be ‘deceived’ by others and not deceive others, you should be ‘harmed by others but not harm anyone, you should not insult others, but you can be insulted by others, and you should be abused by others but not abuse others. One cannot attain God by doing penance even for centuries. But there is one easiest way to attain God. When you are deceived by others or when you are harmed by others or when you are insulted by others or when you are abused by others, the Lord comes to your side. It means you have attained God. Therefore, you should thank the people who have deceived, or harmed or insulted or abused you. They have helped you in attaining God by the easiest way. Therefore you should not deceive or harm or insult or scold even such people in return. They might have passed on the punishment to you, for your sins on the will of God. In that case also, they have cleared your sins at an early stage without further interest on the punishment. Even in that way you should thank them.

    THIS IS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS!

    NOW, WHO, IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD, WANT TO BE "DECIEVED" OR "HARMED"?

    My sentiments exactly.


    I prefer,avoid those who decieve you for they will self destruct.Harm those who harm you,but make sure you do not get caught.

    I take it this shows forth turning the other cheek and doing unto others as we would ourselves, that is, when one slaps the one, turn the other to him, also. And even if one has evil done to them, we shouldn't return evil for evil. In faith, this is necessary to understand and carry out each and every day, never making excuses not to obey the Word of the Father.

    It is because of the faith which the Son has brought us, the sacrifice which He made for our sins, His resurrection which was the 3rd day, and the long suffering of the Father on High that redemption for ourselves is even possible. By faith in the Father and the Son and belief in all which was and is done for us, we cannot lose any gift He's mercifully given; salvation, love, life, light.

    All which the Son has taught us is only ever for our benefit and life, so that we may be perfect before the Father, so keeping His commandments shouldn't be difficult for any who believe themselves to be called in the faith. It'll look odd to everyone else to hold onto such convictions, but anything or one which isn't of this world will indeed look odd; we just can't let that sway us one way or the other, but stay faithful to the road before us.
