409 People Don’t Truly Believe in God

I

During the many years of God’s work,

people have gained much, and forsaken much,

yet still God says that they do not truly believe in Him,

they do not truly believe in Him.

For people merely acknowledge God with their mouths,

but they disagree with the truths He speaks,

and moreover, do not practice the truths that He asks of them,

do not practice the truths that He asks of them.

People acknowledge only the existence of God, but not that of the truth;

people acknowledge only the existence of God, but not that of the life;

people acknowledge only God’s name, but not His essence.

God despises them for their zeal,

for they only use nice-sounding words to deceive Him;

none of them truly worship Him,

none of them truly worship Him.


II

Your words contain the temptation, the temptation of the serpent;

further, they are conceited in the extreme,

a veritable proclamation by the archangel.

What is more, your deeds are tattered and torn to a disgraceful degree;

your immoderate desires and covetous intentions are offensive to the ear.

You have all become moths in God’s house, objects to be spurned by God.

For none of you love the truth;

instead, you desire to be blessed, to ascend to heaven,

to see the magnificent vision of Christ wielding His power on earth.

You are so deeply corrupted, and you have no idea what God is;

have you ever wondered:

How could you be worthy of following God? How could you ascend to heaven?

How could you be worthy of seeing such magnificent scenes,

scenes without precedent in their splendor?
