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.
