O Ye Children Of Men! The Fundamental Purpose Animating






O YE children of men! The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God
and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of
the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst
men. Suffer it not to become a source of dissension and discord, of hate
and enmity. This is the straight Path, the fixed and immovable foundation.
Whatsoever is raised on this foundation, the changes and chances of the
world can never impair its strength, nor will the revolution of countless
centuries undermine its structure. Our hope is that the world's religious
leaders and the rulers thereof will unitedly arise for the reformation of
this age and the rehabilitation of its fortunes. Let them, after
meditating on its needs, take counsel together and, through anxious and
full deliberation, administer to a diseased and sorely-afflicted world the
remedy it requires.... It is incumbent upon them who are in authority to
exercise moderation in all things. Whatsoever passeth beyond the limits of
moderation will cease to exert a beneficial influence. Consider for
instance such things as liberty, civilization and the like. However much
men of understanding may favourably regard them, they will, if carried to
excess, exercise a pernicious influence upon men.... Please God, the
peoples of the world may be led, as the result of the high endeavours
exerted by their rulers and the wise and learned amongst men, to recognize
their best interests. How long will humanity persist in its waywardness?
How long will injustice continue? How long is chaos and confusion to reign
amongst men? How long will discord agitate the face of society? The winds
of despair are, alas, blowing from every direction, and the strife that
divideth and afflicteth the human race is daily increasing. The signs of
impending convulsions and chaos can now be discerned, inasmuch as the
prevailing order appeareth to be lamentably defective. I beseech God,
exalted be His glory, that He may graciously awaken the peoples of the
earth, may grant that the end of their conduct may be profitable unto
them, and aid them to accomplish that which beseemeth their station.
