935 God’s Standard for Measuring Good and Evil

1 What is the standard by which a person’s deeds are evaluated as good or evil? It depends on whether or not you, in your thoughts, expressions, and actions, possess the testimony of putting the truth into practice. If you do not have this reality, then you are without a doubt an evildoer. Your thoughts and external acts do not bear testimony for God, nor do they put Satan to shame or defeat Satan; instead, they shame God, and are riddled with marks that cause God to be ashamed. You are not testifying of God, not expending yourself for God, nor are you fulfilling your responsibility and obligations toward God; instead, you are acting for your own sake. “For your own sake” actually means for Satan.

2 Therefore, in the end, God will say, “Depart from Me, you that work iniquity.” In God’s eyes, you have not done good deeds; rather, your behavior has turned evil. You will not be rewarded; God will not remember you. Is this not completely in vain? For each of you fulfilling your duty, no matter how profoundly you understand the truth, if you wish to enter the reality of the truth, then the simplest way to practice is to think of the interests of God’s house in everything you do, and to let go of your selfish desires, your individual intent, motives, face, and status. Put the interests of God’s house first—this is the least that you should do. If a person performing his duty cannot do even this much, then that person is a service-doer, and is not performing his duty.
