Message Given By FATHER DIVINE At Unity Baptist Church Brooklyn, N.Y. 1931 A.D.F.D.
Last night when we were in Hackensack, several ladies and gentlemen, as they might be called, started to confess their sins, and there were several present that began to laugh. They thought it was quite strange. But that little song I just sang is a composition for your consideration. If you cast those men out of your lives and confess your sins, and live a pure and a spotless life, you will be free from your sins.
Now it is more than seven d-v-ls in some people. It is wonderful! Some of you have more than seven to get rid of. It is wonderful! But if you throw them out, you will be free from your sins. I don’t care anything of what you have been; if you have not sinned against the Holy Ghost, if you confess and forsake your sins you shall have mercy; and you do not need to care anything about what anybody thinks about you, or anything about what anybody says about you, for if GOD is for, who can be against you?
