Not far from the Truth

Generally we find that those who have abandoned God have abandoned humanity as well.

Not that everyone who doesn’t believe in God has abandoned Him, that is, if they have not abandoned humanity, for mankind is the presence and viceroy of God on earth, even in its fallen state, and there is no such thing as an atheist, only a rejection of an idea of God.

Not that everyone who believes in God has not abandoned Him, that is, if they have abandoned humanity, for belief is nothing compared to behavior, and though faith is professed, if it oppresses, even openly for religion’s sake, mankind, it has abandoned God.

This is just another way of expressing what holy and divine scripture affirms, that to love your neighbor is to love God, and to hate him is to hate God. Look for those who have not abandoned mankind, and you will find those who are not far from the Truth.
