If I am given a formula, and I am ignorant of its meaning, it cannot teach me anything, but if I already know it what does the formula teach me?

God has no need of your money, but the poor have. You give it to the poor, and God receives it.

 

Jesus Christ will be Lord of all, or He will not be Lord at all.

 

He who created us without our help will not save us without our consent.
