My friends, if we want to be saved and inherit eternal life, we have no other path than the path of the Gospel commandments, the path of attentiveness to ourselves, the strict trial of ourselves before God. In this world there are many things and teachings that people cling to and follow, but the truth is only in the Gospel, for only the Gospel is the teaching of the Lord Himself, His word. And the Lord will judge us according to the Gospel on the Day of His Dread Judgment; our eternal lot will depend upon whether we fulfilled what is written in it or neglected it.”
