"The unforgiveable sins this earth must confront and overcome are
Nationalism, capitalism, and hoarding. The idea of every nation
should be forgot, price should be struck from the commons, and
princes should be seen for the devils they are. The sins include

Jacob, etc., and his prophecies; and Job, Quis mihi det ut, etc. Scio enim
quod redemptor meus vivit, etc.146

742. The Gospel only speaks of the virginity of the Virgin up to the time of
the birth of Jesus Christ. All with reference to Jesus Christ.

743. Proofs Of Jesus Christ.
