Mission

(After Acts 17: 22 to 27)

Men and Women, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

For when I beheld your devotion, I found an image of a bull whom ye ignorantly worship, in whom you set your hope and trust, even though you should trust no one but God.

I declare unto you, God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; For we are also his offspring.

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that Divinity is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, designed with craft and man’s thought:

And the times of this ignorance God overlooked; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:

Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Therefore choose wisely:

The commandment of the Bull: Only the strongest shall survive!

Or:

The great commandment of God (Matt. 22: 37 to 40):

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it,

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
