12 Wherefore having so great witnesses, by them  shall the world be judged, even as many as shall  hereafter receive this work, either to faith and right eousness, or to the hardness of heart in unbelief, to  their own condemnation, for the Lord God hath  spoken it, for we, the elders of the church, have  heard and bear witness to the words of the glorious  Majesty on high; to whom be glory forever and  ever. Amen.
13 Wherefore, by these things we know that there  is a God in heaven, who is infinite and eternal,  from everlasting to everlasting, the same unchange able God, the maker of heaven and earth and all  things that in them is, and that he created man  male and female, and after his own image, and in  his own likeness created he them;
14 And that he gave unto the children of men  commandments, that they should love and serve  him the only being whom they should worship, but  by the transgression of these holy laws, man became  sensual and devilish, and became fallen man.
15 Wherefore, the Almighty God gave his only  begotton Son, as it is written in those scriptures,  which have been given of him, that he suffered  temptations, but gave no heed unto them;
16 That he was crucified, died, and rose again the  third day, and that he ascended into heaven to sit  down on the right hand of the Father, to reign with  Almighty power according to the will of the Fa ther.
17 Therefore, as many as would believe and were  baptized in his holy name, and endured in faith to  [t]he end, should be saved; [p. 49]
