The most important observation

The most important observation

"The most important one, answered Jesus, is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one." ( Mark, 12:29 )

On replying to the scribe that had interrogated him, with regards to the most important of all the commandments, Jesus preceded the initial article of the Decalogue with an observation that merits pointing out.

Prior to any of the programs of Moses, the Revelations of the Prophets and of his own redeeming Blessings in the Gospel, the Master chooses an energetic declaration of principles, proclaiming all the spirits to a plane of substantial unity. Basing the services of salvation that He solely had brought from the higher spheres, Jesus Christ proclaimed to all of humanity that only one Almighty God exists, the Father of Infinite Mercy.

He was aware, in advance, that many men would not accept the truth, that many souls would make an effort to escape from their just obligations, that there would be delays, ill will, indifference and laziness regarding the Glad Tidings. Nonetheless, He sustained divine unity, in order that the students would become convinced that they could poison their own liberty, create fictitious Gods, raise discord and temporarily betray the Law, station themselves on the roads, attempt war and destruction. In spite of this, they would never be able to fool the plan of the eternal truths, to which all will become adjusted one fine day, to the perfect understanding that the Fathers is our God, that "the Lord our God, the Lord is one".
