We live in a divided, turbulent world where freedom,
truth, and goodness are controversial. No nation
can long stand that fails to maintain respect for their Creator, for the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. Such
divine respect being necessary for any society united in goodness.
As the absence of virtue leads to the dissolution of society, destruction, anarchy, and war,
we therefore, the undersigned, with respect and reverence to the Supreme Judge, make a solemn Oath to change
We acknowledge such mighty change must begin within ourselves.
Therefore, we the undersigned, make this Oath in solidarity‐with firm reliance on divine
Providence‐seeking these virtues may prevail in our souls:
Love over hate
Understanding over judgement
Light over darkness
Common decency over incivility
Selflessness over selfishness
Humility over pride
Gratitude over ingratitude
Knowledge over ignorance
Truth over deception
Goodness over wickedness
Holiness over unholiness
Divinity over the demons in our own souls
To the fulfillment of this solemn Oath, we summon the Powers of the Universe and the divine heritage within
ourselves, with all our hope for goodness and honor to prevail. And to this end, We Pledge our lives, our
fortunes, and our future to the building of a Zion, even a Better World.
