Followers of any religion should be evaluated first and foremost by their acts, not by their words. Just as the Trinity can be recognized and made real for Christians by its known Acts, so any follower is recognized, not for what he or she professes by word, but by how he or she acts toward all peoples. This book asks the question-What is distinctive about the action of any religion's claimed discipline? It delves into the fact that all religious leaders and all followers utter words of information or of instruction, but these verbalizations are often subject to misunderstandings, or even are subsequently distorted in their meaning. The standard for understanding must come only from watching what the leader does. Actions can make the religious view stable, but words cannot.
