As for the living, we live poorly, so at least we should spread the Truth of God without any additions. It does not belong to us but it was given to us. It is our duty to share it and spread it further on.
Anyway, when it comes to acts we should not recommend easement. We play from time to time with usual words but when it comes to the Truth of God we are not allowed to alter it. Our duty is to spread it as we have earned it from God. As for the living, we live poorly, so at least we should spread the Truth of God without any additions! Nowadays, people are confused by the multitude of laws and ideas. There are hard times those that we live in! But God watches over His people and allows them to see and feel the Holy Truth.
