Chapter 8: Genuine Faithfulness


Moreover, all those who have extorted unfair and unrighteous wealth, they must compensate for it by pawning the fortunes of their wives, children, and family members; even unto death.  Those who do not die are further inflicted with disasters of water, fire, theft, loss of goods, disease, slander, and more; until it offsets their illicit appropriations.  Furthermore, for those who indiscriminately killed people, it is like soldiers who exchange blades and kill each other.  To seize wealth unjustly, is like relieving hunger with poisoned meat, or slacking thirst with poisoned wine.  It brings only temporary satisfaction, but ultimately death.  Such Taesiong’s pronouncements to awaken people, We fully concur.  Therefore, and identifiably, persons placed in the political arena, providing private gains in the name of public interests, abusing and manipulating special privileges, fond of procuring unlawfully; assuming oneself so exalted and eminent as to be above all, the mortal legal order might tolerate pro tem the wrongs, the invisible heavenly retributions shall be apparent and erectly evident; ye children and grandchildren be disciplined and be discreet.  Therefore, once ever taken the evil path should oneself repent and rectify.  Refrain from doing all evils.  Practice and participate in all goodness.  With genuine heart and sincere soul, then propitious spirits favorably follow; and comeuppance exchanges for sanctuary.

Newsflash

The controversy over President Ma Ying-jeou’s (馬英九) US green card status flared up again after recent cables released by WikiLeaks ignited a fresh round of accusations between the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) and the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) yesterday.

The cables, dated between February and June 2008, recently released by WikiLeaks showed that KMT heavyweights had visited the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) and asked the US to clearly explain Ma’s green card status before the 2008 presidential election.

After Ma defeated DPP presidential candidate Frank Hsieh (謝長廷), who had accused Ma of still holding a green card, in the 2008 presidential election, KMT politicians expressed their appreciation for the US’ impartiality toward the “dirty tricks” that the DPP had staged.
