"We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves." Paul (Romans, 15:1)
With what objective does the individual acquire the correct notion of faith in God? He does it to evade the struggle and subsist relying on Heaven?
Such an attitude would not be comprehensible.
The student achieves the light of understanding in order to put it into practice in his own journey. Jesus conceded him a piece of Heaven so that he could evolve and extend it while on Earth
To receive the sacred assistance from the Master only to remove it from the laboratory of redemption, is to manifest extreme ignorance.
To give oneself to Jesus Christ involves striving for the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth.
The earthly temples, due to the lack of understanding of the truth, remain replete with inert souls that deserted their service because of their desire to achieve blessings. This can be found in individuals who have not, as yet, achieved the necessary sense of reality; however, you, who are more versed in the knowledge of the Gospel, should not rest indifferently in face of the sacred duties of the shining light due to the infinite goodness of the Christ, in your inner world. It is imperative, therefore, for everyone to take hold of his work tools and to strive for the victory of righteousness within the circle of persons and activities that surround him.
Many sick spirits overtaken by false preoccupations and laziness in the world will plead ignorance. You, meanwhile, are not weaklings, nor are you lacking of the Lord's Mercy.
