1. God gave man the root of his existence, and provided him with material things, yet man is dissatisfied with his current circumstances and asks that he enter God’s kingdom. But how could he enter God’s kingdom so easily, without having paid a price, and unwilling to offer his selfless devotion? Instead of exacting anything from man, God makes requirements of him, so that His kingdom on earth may be filled with glory.
2. Man has been guided by God into the present age, he exists in this state, and he lives amidst the guidance of God’s light. If it were not thus, who among the people on earth would know their prospects? Who would understand God’s will? God adds His provisions to the requirements of man; is this not in line with the laws of nature?
