Pagina 10 - Christ to destroy sin and to guide them in obedience to the light, shall come to know the only true God and Father of light in Christ Jesus, who is the way to him. And this I witness to all the sons of men, that the knowledge of eternal life I came not to by the letter of the Scripture, nor by hearing men speak of the name of God.
