Don’t believe at face-value anything
written in that sacred collection
Don’t be certain of anything
in that book spoken or rumored.
Don’t have faith in it merely on
the convictions of your parents and teachers.
Nor believe in its potency
because generations have handed down this tradition.
But after an attentive read, a diligent study,
you find this transcript agreeable with reason…
then accept it
and live up to its code.
