The disciple must always allow for the fact that this is a divine Church full of imperfect people. Indeed, "the net gathereth of every kind." Some among us have an exclusionary condescension; some display a passivity toward others; others, fortunately, have a quiet certitude which causes them to serve, for service is but one dimension of testimony in action. The Spirit has witnessed to the latter, and they witness to others in order to maintain their integrity, leveling by telling the truth about salvational things "as they are, as they were, and as they are to come."
