Rune Rofke - Glenn Emery
At long last I feel victory is within my grasp. I am not out of the tunnel yet, but I can see daylight ahead. I don't think I will ever be the same.
The difference between a cult and a religion is that the former is centered on a personality or personalities, while the latter is centered on truth. I realize I need the truth in the worst way, and I must educate my members to anchor themselves to the truth. If we are not, then there is no guarantee that we will not fall away. If we are simply united with a personality, then as long as that person is centered on truth then everything is fine.
But what if that person begins to behave in an unprincipled or untruthful way? If we don't know the truth in our hearts ourselves, then we may easily be dragged down to hell, even though it would not be our desire or intention. Without truth, passion is more powerful than reason. We must know the Divine Principle and center all of our actions on accomplishing God's will.
We always have three choices when faced with some difficulty: flight, fright or fight. We can leave and change our external situation, although nothing is really resolved; or we can fall into fear and pull down others with us; or we can arm ourselves with the truth and fight until we get victory.
I feel the worst is almost over, but I must be careful not to let Satan invade in the end.
