First Chapter: The Nature of Evil

The Holy Church firmly believes that perfect Good lies within the vision of God at Paradise. Consequently the Evil is firstly, and above all, what moves us away from Paradise. According to the teachings of Aristotle and the life of Christos, the Messiah, we can say that in the practice of virtue and balance of the heart that the way of Paradise can be found.

The Evil is therefore a rejection of this balance, it is the absence of Good, the absence of Good which lies in the Creature Without Name, and the rejection of virtue.

Second Chapter: The Cause of Evil

No one can say that it is God who wants Evil, nor that man can refrain himself from doing it. In truth man is free, and if he humbly asks for the help of God, help will not be refused to him, and then he will be able to fight against his imperfect desires and practice the Good.

It is true, only the tainted will of man that can cause Evil, either of his own choice, or by yielding to temptation from the wicked Nameless One, pressed upon his weak spirit.

Third Chapter: Of Virtues and Sins

Every man desires Good: wellness of the body, wellness of the heart, bountiful possessions. This desire, if it is too burning, if it is disturbing and if it is excessive, can degenerate into vice, a seed of sin.

Thus moderation in the pursuit of goods of the body is expressed by the virtue of Temperance. But excess will lead to the sins of the Greediness and the Lust.

Moderation in the pursuit of goods of the heart will make known the Good, the Virtue and the Friendship. But excess will make one fall into the sins of pride and of apathy.

Moderation in the desire of wealth will lead to the path of the Justice, which makes one return what is owed to another. But an excess has the consequence of the sins of stinginess, anger and covetousness.

Fourth Chapter: The Forgiveness of God

It is a rather sad truth, for he who falls into sin is tortured by the remorse of faults that he would have made. More endangering for ones soul to fall in hell, is the creation of a hell on earth by this terrible feeling to be outside of the way of virtue. It is for that reason, that the Holy Church received from God the strength to hear confessions of the faithful ones, and to grant forgiveness in the name of God to them, for the safety of their soul in this world and in the other.

This forgiveness granted by confession, erases the traces of sin and comforts the heart of faithful, renewing his strength and will, to harness himself to daily labours.

Thus this effort of humility, which is the confession of ones sins, asked of a Priest, is rewarded by the joy of a pure conscience and the lively feeling of friendship with God.

Fifth Chapter: The Commandments of God

In order to help the faithful ones in their fight against sin, the Church teaches commandments in a total of ten. Far from being rigidities, which imposes a despotic authority, they are meant to help in acquiring a true happiness on Earth and in Paradise.

They are given here:

1. There is only one God, which thou shalt love and like perfectly.
2. Thou shalt respect His Holy Name, avoiding blasphemy and false oaths.
3. Thou shalt hold a day of the Sabbath, serving God devoutly.
4. Thou shalt honour thy father and mother, and treat thy superiors the same way.
5. Thou shalt avoid murder and scandal, like thou shalt do with hate and anger.
6. Thou shalt carefully observe purity in all thy acts.
7. Thou shalt not take the goods of others, nor will thee wrongfully keep them.
8. Thou shalt not spread rumours or cause scandal or speak false testimony.
9. Thy thoughts and desires should be held to remain completely pure.
10. Thou shalt not covet to have dishonestly the possessions of others.

Written at the Cistercian Abbey of Noirlac, the 18th day of the month of January in the year 1454
(Translated by the hand of Father Loyats, the 28th of February, 1454)
