be plain unto the children of men;
and he inviteth them all to come
unto him and partake of his good-
ness; and he denieth none that come
unto him, black and white, bond
and free, male and female; and he
remembereth the heathen; and all
are alike unto God, both Jew and
The loving nature of our Father. It really isn't such a mystery.
