Verse 1. If any one of the Spiritual Church violates Divine Order,—after he has confirmed the truth by the testimony of his understanding, either through perception, or knowledge received from others,—by refusing to speak or act according to it, then evil is to be ascribed to him. Or again, from another point of view, if any one, having a perception and knowledge of the truth, becomes aware of his disposition to avert himself from it, and yet neglects to speak or act according to it, then evil is to be ascribed to him.
