Nichiren Daishonin states in “Rissho ankoku-ron”:

If you truly desire your own peace and security, should you not first pray for peace of the entire nation? Above all, everyone living in this world fears what is to come after death. In fear of this, people unknowingly take faith in erroneous teachings or venerate slanderous religions. Their inability to differentiate right from wrong is disgraceful. How pitiful it is that they believe they are dedicating themselves to correct Buddhism! If people were inclined to take faith, why would they heedlessly follow erroneous doctrines?

宗祖日莲大圣人于《立正安国》曰:

汝若思得一身之安泰,须先祈四表之安宁。就中,人之在世,皆畏来世。是以或信邪教,或贵谤法。虽恶各迷是非取舍,亦哀犹思皈依佛法。同时信心之力,何以妄宗邪义之词哉?
