    Who has ears to hear? Is it not those that enter at the strait gate, meaning difficult, not linear. These teachings are not from one who possesses an ego or has ulterior motives. No, they are the truth from God which are purified seven times as silver from dross, with fire. There is no controversy. Hear and perform these commandments or suffer the fate of a hypocrite. Be not like the phonies
