When a man hears the Message concerning the Kingdom and does not understand it, the Evil one comes and catches away what has been sown in his heart. This is he who has received the seed by the road-side.
"What the sower sows is the Message.
1 Corinthians 3:6
I planted and Apollos watered; but it was God who was, all the time, giving the increase.
Ridding yourselves, therefore, of all that is vile and of the evil influences which prevail around you, welcome in a humble spirit the Message implanted within you, which is able to save your souls.
1 Peter 1:23
For you have been begotten again by God's ever-living and enduring word from a germ not of perishable, but of imperishable life.
