Epistle to the Ephesians, Chapter XIV

For the beginning is faith, and the end is love. Now these tow, being inseparably connected together, are of God, while all other things which are requisite for a holy life follow after them. No man [truly] making a profession of faith sinneth; nor does he that possesses live hate any one. the tree is made manifest by its fruit; so those that profess themselves to be Christians shall be recognsed by their conduct.
