And Now Concerning Thy Question Regarding

And now, concerning thy question regarding the creation of man. Know thou

that all men have been created in the nature made by God, the Guardian,

the Self-Subsisting. Unto each one hath been prescribed a pre-ordained

measure, as decreed in God's mighty and guarded Tablets. All that which ye

potentially possess can, however, be manifested only as a result of your

own volition. Your own acts testify to this truth. Consider, for instance,

that which hath been forbidden, in the Bayan, unto men. God hath in that

Book, and by His behest, decreed as lawful whatsoever He hath pleased to

decree, and hath, through the power of His sovereign might, forbidden

whatsoever He elected to forbid. To this testifieth the text of that Book.

Will ye not bear witness? Men, however, have wittingly broken His law. Is

such a behavior to be attributed to God, or to their proper selves? Be

fair in your judgment. Every good thing is of God, and every evil thing is

from yourselves. Will ye not comprehend? This same truth hath been

revealed in all the Scriptures, if ye be of them that understand. Every

act ye meditate is as clear to Him as is that act when already

accomplished. There is none other God besides Him. His is all creation and

its empire. All stands revealed before Him; all is recorded in His holy

and hidden Tablets. This fore-knowledge of God, however, should not be

regarded as having caused the actions of men, just as your own previous

knowledge that a certain event is to occur, or your desire that it should

happen, is not and can never be the reason for its occurrence.
