Making cult members work long hours for free (Orange papers, 让信徒免费长时间工作, 橙色文件)

Many Falun Gong members work long long hours for free to help spread their religion, either by:

because spreading those are religious obligations.

But on the other hand, why wouldn’t do that if you believed that there is a living god on our Earth which most "ordinary people" don’t know about, and that you are saving people’s souls? If a religion doesn’t make you do things for it, that belief is useless. In the case of Christianity however this is possibly in part linked to the Evangelical belief of salvation by grace alone. Quite convenient right, you don’t really have to do anything concrete to be saved, only believe and repent.

Furthermore, a very similar mindset is present in entrepreneurs, who are often driven to do long long work for an ideal. Sometimes, e.g. in Ciro Santilli (三西猴, anti-CCP fanatic, 反中共狂热, stupid cunt, 傻屄, CIA agent, CIA特工, 肏你妈的)'s case, even to make a not-for-profit.

And Ciro Santilli’s mother would spend countless hours helping the less fortunate after her retirement in activities semi-linked to her Protestant church.

So this point is not so simple to criticize.

But it is sad to watch people waste their lives for something that is a lie.
