In simple/short, this is what my intuition eye sees:
(I don't remember giving any oaths)
(...or signing any contracts)
Some (suppose to be )inspiring words
Take the test [Are you the ONE!(of us)]
Buy pack of books
...And reward is there.
There is too much "you must" for me. I'm more into "You'll get your orders&tools when time comes and you'll be ready for it (and they'll come for free)" way...
Like, if omnipotent god has a message for you why would he wait till sunday when you go to church and bother trying to explain you thru the priest what you need to do. I think you would get inspiring message instantly and will know exactly what you need to do in a moment.
