By this ye may know if a man repenteth of his sins. Behold he will confess them and forsake them.

Let them preach by the way, and bear testimony of the truth in all places, and call upon the rich, the high and the low, and the poor, to repent; and let them build up churches inasmuch as the inhabitants of the earth will repent.
