Will you enter into heaven by virtue of your own religion? Will you set your own standard of righteousness and accomplish it, saying to the Holy guard of heaven, “I am a righteous man let me enter”?
Have you been to heaven? Have you seen the surpassing glory of the creatures there? Have you understood the nature of their holiness? Have you understood the Holy commands they have received?
Will you now, you who are so feeble of mind, hold to the traditions of your own? Or will you seek the unmovable, Holy and pure traditions of eternity?
You cannot spend the currency of Man’s traditions in the store house of God. In that place, by your own strength, you can be no more than a beggar.
