TO THE LOVERS OF WHAT IS SIMPLE
Do not worry about God. He can take care of Himself. He can defend Himself. He is of age.
Do not be distressed over God. He is never troubled or shaken.
Do not defend God. If He does not defend Himself, why ever will you try to? Do you have better arguments?
Do not be anxious to make God understandable. This is not possible. Either He reveals Himself or nothing is discerned.
Speak of God as He speaks of Himself.
Speak of Jesus as Jesus spoke of Himself.
Speak of the Gospel as it speaks in itself.
Never discourse on God: This is the work of craftsmen of language idols.
Never philosophize God: This is the wise ones’ mad-madness, which is the biggest foolishness in God’s eye.
Never indoctrinate about God. It would be better for you to give an illiterate person a medicine information insert.
Always trust in truth. It is invincible.
Always trust in love. It is of God, because God is love.
Always trust that peace is the best weapon and the best defense.
Believe with simplicity and everything will be wonderful.
Believe with complexity and you will never find joy.
Believe, just believe, and everything will start to be possible.
But, above all, be honest to God and yourself, because without this, none of the previously mentioned is true.
