Clairvaux Manifesto, bottom of 103
(quote) It wasn’t enough that Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. While they waited (not-so-patiently) in the desert, in-between Egypt and their Promised Land, Moses ascended 7,500 feet up a stark mountainside to meet face-to-face with God (for forty days), where he received the creed of creeds. Pointing towards Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, those ten commands given to Moses were clear, credible, and creedal statements, written by the very finger of God (Ex 31:18; Dt 9:10).
In circles of quiet and abbeys of prayer and work, we realize doxology leads to orthodoxy leads to orthopraxy: the process of doxopraxy. Doxa means glory; Ortho means straight; Praxis means practice. Whoever gives God glory will be set straight. Beyond clarity, credibility, and creed, Moses was a straightforward worshiper.
