But instead he gave them “advice on holiness” – in particular on avoiding abuse of power, sexual sin, and love of money.“A church that will flourish, a people that will find God as faithful, base themselves in the Bible, that endless store of riches, and in holiness of lifestyle, the practical life of Christian obedience,” he said.
