Using CGL 10.30 metalicense involves a 'multiple request':

  1. that one of your motivations is to do this to the glory of God, † "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Cor 10:31),
  2. that you only exploit the work and its derivative works through free loan or donation of copies, † "Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give." (Mt 10:8), † "What do you possess that you have not received?" (1 Cor 4:7),
  3. that you include this disclaimer in any total or partial copy and in any derivative work.

But as you see, it's only a request.

New version CGL 10.30

Second version is proposed today:

Christian Gratuity Metalicense 10.30 (CGL 10.30)

Changes to the previous version are:
  • 'metalicense' formal denomination CGL is more than a multilicense (set of licenses) as it involves a request,
  • adjective «10.30» with regard to the different versions of the Creative Commons licenses constituting the metalicense: CC0 1.0 and CC BY 3.0,
  • adjustments to the text aligning it with the proposed, and already established, texts by the Creative Commons licenses translations,
  • slight revision of the digital presentation format.
Since there has been no substantive change, you may use this new version to replace the versions currently used in published works.
