“I, Saint Athanasius, speak through this child to teach you in a manner and in a way that you can react to, for if I said in the beginning, ‘I am Saint Athanasius,’ you would not have listened so critically to the Words; and yet, by your sheer criticism you reacted in an important way.
Heaven uses all means to gather children in a special way. Those of you who have walked on this Hill today must understand the Hill is God’s Way. The Hill is Hope for the world. The Hill is to give man the Purpose of life and incentive to be a Saint.
Many men are standing on the outskirts of God’s Way, praying in their own way. They say, ‘This is my way to God.’ Most of these children are omitting the Ten Commandments, for they are holding up false gods before them, whether the false god be their own pride, their own ego, their own position in life, or whether the false god be their emotional way, which has no stability in it in any day. They are sinning against the First Commandment.
And then one of the great Commandments is: Thou Shalt Not Steal. Ask yourself: Are you allowing others to steal from you the dignity of the human way? Are you allowing others to steal from you, your free will? Are you allowing others to steal from you the truth and replace it with fallacy? Are you allowing others to let you believe that The Commandment says, ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal,’ and that this word only means material things? Oh, My children, go to your Commandments, read Them well and see the true meaning in Them, for if you do not, you will truly go to Hell.
A Commandment says, ‘Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,’ and man says it has one meaning. God says: ‘I gave it for many meanings. You have only accepted one.’
God says, ‘Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor,’ and yet how many times do you and others stand in judgment of your neighbor? And yet, man runs around saying, ‘I love everyone,’ and this very man will turn and say, ‘On my terms, not God’s today.’
So, you see, My children, The Commandments are to stabilize the physical way. The Commandments are to give you hope, to give you life, to give you Truth. There are so many children in the world doubting Truth. There are so many children acting in their own way. I, Saint Athanasius, say to you today: ‘If you come across one of these, pray. If you come face to face with one of these, do not try to change them but be example of what is truth.’
Oh, My children, there is not one home that should not have evident to all the world the Ten Commandments in view, and the reason for Them and the meaning of each of Them. Men, right now, are standing in great libraries, seeking knowledge. Few of these men are capable of having wisdom. Knowledge they can absorb. They read it: another man’s thoughts, another man’s words; but wisdom, My children, is innocence, truth. So be it.”
