Religion in Practice

Religion, in practice, consists in loving and fearing God and keeping his commandments–in receiving his son Jesus Christ as our only Saviour–in loving all our fellow men as ourselves; particularly, in abstaining from murder, adultery, stealing, lying, cheating, slandering, and oppressing one another–in honoring and obeying our parents and governors–in doing acts of justice and kindness, as we have power and opportunity, to all men, even to our enemies–in moderating our passions and affections–and in living soberly, chastely, and temperately in our conversation.
