OUR FEARS MULTIPLIED OVER THE VILLAINOUS THOUGHTS THAT CREPT IN A FEW YEARS BACK, LIKE THE PLAGUE, THE DARKNESS, AND THE POISON OF INFIDELITY, ESPECIALLY IN OUR GERMAN FATHERLAND, IN SUCH A RAMPANT MANNER THAT ALMOST ALL RANKS WERE INFECTED WITH IT. INDEED, WHAT IS THE MOST PITIFUL, IS THAT OUR SO-CALLED SCHOLARS-OF-GOD DO NOT FALL CHIEFLY IN SMALL NUMBERS TO THESE ATROCITIES, AND, IN COUNTRIES WHERE THE SECULAR ARM DOES NOT KEEP IT IN CHECK, THESE GENUINE SERVANTS-OF-SATAN HAVE ALREADY BEGUN TO APPEAR SECRETLY AMONG THE POPULACE, AND SPREAD THESE ABOMINATIONS UNDER THE TITLE OF ENLIGHTENED AND RATIONAL RELIGION. IF WE DID NOT OTHERWISE KNOW, THAT WE LIVED IN THE LATTER TIMES, THEN WE WOULD STILL HAVE A CONVINCING PROOF OF THIS FACT BECAUSE WE REALIZE THAT THE PROPHECY OF CHRIST, MARCH 24TH, IS ALREADY BEGINNING TO COME TRUE. THIS DANGEROUS ERA OF FALSE PROPHETS RISES IN THE WORLD AS A FLOOD, AND IT IS HIGH TIME TO ERECT A BULWARK THAT THE STORMS OF TEMPTATION WILL SHATTER AGAINST, SO THAT ALL ELSE WILL NOT PERISH.

THE HIGH ORDER, WHICH CARRIES ON THE CAUSE OF CHRIST WITH POWER AND ZEAL, HAS TAKEN THE ENTIRE HUMAN-RACE TO HEART, EVEN AS IT DOES ITS OWN. IT HAS NOW SPREAD OUT MORE THAN EVER, AND THEY HAVE BUSIED THEMSELVES WITH EXTREME EFFORTS TO AUGMENT THE NUMBER OF COMBATANTS TO THE SOUL-KILLER, TO PUT A SHARP STOP TO HIS FURTHER CONQUESTS, TOGETHER WITH HIS WICKED TROOP, AND TO THWART ITS HELLISH INTENTIONS. ALL OF US, DEAREST BBR.! HAVE ALSO BEEN RECRUITED UNDER THE BANNER OF JESUS’ BLOOD, ENROLLED IN THE LIST OF HIS GENERALS, AND IT IS INCUMBENT UPON ALL OF US TO VALIANTLY AND STEADFASTLY DEFEND THE HONOR OF OUR LORD AND MASTER, AGAINST ALL ATTACKS FROM THE INFERNAL-HORDE. TO AFFECT THIS END WE FIND IT MOST NECESSARY TO PRESCRIBE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS, AND THE PRECISE OBSERVATION OF THEM, WHICH THE On. HAVE THEMSELVES RENDERED AS A MOST SACRED OATH, AND STRINGENT SET OF DEMANDS, AS TO:

1) NOT SUGGEST THAT ANY ASPIRANT BE NOMINATED FOR ADMISSION INTO THE HIGH ORDER, AT LEAST UNTIL THEY HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY EXAMINED ON THIS ONE PARTICULAR POINT, WHICH IS; WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE BEEN INFECTED WITH THE POISON OF THAT NEW SO-CALLED ENLIGHTENED RELIGION, AND, IF ONE FINDS EVEN THE SLIGHTEST TRACE OF IT, THEY SHOULD REMOVE HIM FROM THE On. AND REPLACE HIM SO THAT HE NO LONGER POSES SUCH A GREAT THREAT, WHEREIN HE MOVETH, ACTIVELY, PRAY FOR HIM AND LEAVE HIM TO THE MERCY OF GOD.

2) AND TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO ESTABLISH THAT YOUR BBR FIRMLY ADHERE TO THIS CHIEF-ARTICLE, BEFORE ALL OTHERS , SO FROM TIME TO TIME, MAKE THE SAME RIGOROUS EVALUATION OF THE BBRN UNDER YOUR Ons. TO BE SURE THAT THE DECEIVER HAS NOT, LIKE A RAVENOUS WOLF, SNUCK INTO THE SHEEP PEN, AND IT IS THE DUTY OF A FAITHFUL SHEPHERD TO ALWAYS WATCH OVER THEM WITH SCRUPULOUS CARE. TO THE END.
