391. God loves all races equally, because they are all His children.
392. He who hates human beings is contrary to God’s heart.
393. He who disrespects foreigners and regards them with prejudice defies God’s heart.
394. “Hate the sin, but do not hate the sinner”, this is a common saying. But he who goes God’s way should not even hate the sin, but, looking on it, pity the sinner.
395. God hates sin; human beings have not the right to hate the sins of other people.
396. Because every human being is full of faults and impurities, human beings do not have the right to hate one another. Have pity for the fault, therefore, and endeavour to lead the sinner to good.
397. To make every person repent and correct his evil, to lead him to good and to save him from sin is in accordance with God’s heart.
398. Consequently, to change an evil person into a good person is a good act, which brings joy to God’s heart.
399. Point out your faults to one another when you notice them, and lead one another to the way of goodness. This is the duty of a believer towards God.
400. Begin to lead people to the way of goodness after you have purified your heart and improved your own conduct; otherwise this will be very hard to accomplish. Because Words of guidance from an unjust and unpractising person are lacking in faith, justice and power; they cannot move anyone.
401. Man, whose body perishes and withers away, should rely on God, who transcends death and life, and endeavour to receive the life and power unperishing.
402. That which is able to save your body and soul is naohi (pure spirit) given by God.
403. That which destroys your body and soul with torture, throwing it in a raging fire, is a devil.
404. Naohi is the just function of repenting evil and correcting sin. Justice is absolutely necessary to human beings.
405. Distinguish between gods who are to be believed and those who are not to be believed. Accomplishing this is the function of kushimitama (Divine wisdom).
406. Even if you offer to God all your treasures, riches and body, you cannot repay even a ten-thousandth of your debt of gratitude to God. Accordingly, let him who serves God submit to Him, forsaking everything.
407. The most important treasure in the whole of human life is the power of faith. He who does not have faith can achieve nothing.
408. The aim of human beings living in the world is high rank, long life and great wealth. But these are all treasures for the body only. To the soul after death, they are as worthless as dust.
409. After death the only treasure is the fruit of one’s faith while in this world.
410. Name, rank, life and wealth, these four can be a firm base for faith.
411. Faith is a tower, built on this base. He who has life and treasures is at a great advantage for the practice of faith. Indeed without life, faith cannot be nurtured at all.
412. But even if you do not have name, rank and riches, God, full of love, will build a magnificent tower on your faith, if you only have life.
413. The rich, while having the best basis for faith, do not know how to build a beautiful sanctuary. Therefore, many of them cannot pass through the door of the realm of heavenly beings; most often they fall into the abysmal realm.
414. At one time, because of the Divine will, I intended to spread the Divine teaching to build a Divine realm on earth, and I received various trials from God.
415. Each time I met with these trials, I lost my treasures. Instead of them, I acquired the fruit of faith. The true fruit, acquired through faith, is the incomparable, eternal treasure.
416. When one is rich in money, most often one becomes proud and cannot have true faith. Consequently one cannot see the Divine light.
417. I was once a farmer, practising missionary activities in my free time. But this was not in accordance with the heart of God.
418. Therefore I left my native place and entrusted everything to God.
419. Those who are rich and do not have faith are indeed unhappy. Although in their granaries weevils may swarm and bore and damage their rice, they do not know how to give even these damaged grains of rice to those who are poor and hungry. Pitiable indeed are the rich who accumulate sins against the Divine realm. Although their silk robes in their storehouses are mildewy and damaged by moths, they do not wish even to give these to those who suffer from the cold, and they are eager to have even more. Pitiable is the future of such rich people. Even though the world is coming to an end, blinded by avarice, they think only of hoarding, and more and more do they accumulate heavy sins.
420. The accumulated sins of the rich who do not share their wealth becomes a mountain of swords, which will presently fall onto the rich, will wound and break them.
421. In affairs of the world anyone can achieve high rank with the power of money, with knowledge and science. But this is not true prosperity. True prosperity is to become a missionary of the Divine realm, a witness of the Divine way. This task of the missionary or witness cannot be obtained with money, nor with intelligence or learning. This is the prosperity obtainable only through the manifestation of the Divine will according to each one’s faith and conduct.
