Moral

Please do not forget insistent orders of Divine Lights are “prayers.” It is allged modern manwas not opposed to religion but was indifferent to it. He did not deny the existence of God, but did not want to bother about Him due to self-will. With the aid of science and technology, modern man though he could make the world a happy place (what about the Future State, when shall be a decisive vitory)? (See paragraph two of Moral at the end).

Although it is agreed p ractically, on all hands, fundamental unity of all religions, and supreme ideal of life was the realization of God, yet they are ignorant, which various cults then propagated, have now been tampered with, and as subsequent Divine Lights came, pointed out these deviations from the original Divine Intentions. Last, faith, which is not going to be replaced anymore, and is universally applicable only, is valid until Dooms Day, appeal through Divine Lights to the living public, setting aside their passion and projecting aggression passionately (as non is authorized by God to put forth any directive appeal to the public to adhere and old mutilated cult, excep the Divine Lights on the basis of Final faith, they are now propagatging).

Moral

1. The weakest spon in every man is where he thinks himself to be wisest. In the same degree we over rate ourselves, we shall under rate others, for injustice allowed at him is not likely to be created abroad. Beware of no man more than yourself. We carry our worst enemy with us. Hence, try to walk in Divine Light and you shall see your path, though thorny, bright.

2. If there be ground for you to tread in your own righteousness, all God did to prepare the way is in vain.

3. Self will is the source and spring of all which envy, malice, bitterness of spirit, malcontedness and ordinate desires and lusts which reign inthe hearts and lives of wicked men.

  • 1. Where is the ground for them to claim to be infallible?
  • 2. I.e. being paralized due to sins to offering excuses.
  • 3. Who shall testify on the day when testification will be required.
