good qualities do Taiwanese people possess that deserves Godˇ¦s
special attention? Think about it.
Taiwanese in the past were hard-working, flexible and adaptable to the
environment. Now we are very pathetic, for we have become afraid of
death after we got richer. The better our life gets, the more we are
afraid of death; the more we are afraid of death, the higher the
possibility that we would do anything to guard our lives and private
properties. We enjoy a luxurious lifestyle, but we do not have the
qualification for it. Every country in the world welcome us to travel in
their countries, but to be more specific, they welcome our money, not
us; they detest people from Taiwan.
People today do not have much respect for our legal system. When things
are not going smoothly for some villains, they would fill glass bottles
with petroleum and use them to burn up houses, besides the use of
firearms. In the society, many poor people are lazy, reluctant to work,
while the wealthy and the powerful are arrogant and treating others
rudely. Back in the old days, when people met on the street, they would
greet each other with friendliness, care for each other with sincerity;
but now, it is totally another story. God is aware of the pains and
sufferings the islanders born in the past, so He gives the people wealth
in return. The mainlanders have suffered a great deal as well,
hence God will be giving them their share of comfort and wealth soon.
Taiwan should not look down on mainland, for the two are closely linked
together ˇV if China is blessed, then Taiwan is blessed, too.
Both sides have their own fortune, though the relationship
between them is seemingly getting more and more intense. There is a typical Chinese
characteristic that might have contributed to the present cross-strait
relation ˇV ˇ§no one would ever bow to anyone elseˇ¨.
are two reasons why Taiwan and the mainland China still coexist in the
world stage today: First, if a war ever broke out across the strait, Taiwanˇ¦s military
forces can engage in the fighting for a few months. Second, the mainland
wants our capital, our investments; they want more and more Taiwanese
businessmen to invest on the mainland, pour money into their market.
Right now, the mainland is going through some big domestic
reformation, while Taiwan is also in a transition state.
if the two sides can be more patient and tolerant towards each other
will there be an opportunity for both to benefit from one other.
