Lesson 11 - Stand on Principle
"Stand fast, therefore, in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made you free, and be not entangled again in the yoke of bondage."
UNTIL you as a student of truth are thoroughly rooted and grounded in the principles of science, and feel a steadfast assurance that it is the open door to all wisdom, you will probably suffer spells of doubt; you will have many misgivings; you will wonder if it is not dangerous to accept what seems to repudiate many of your old settled convictions. Your reason tells you the science is true, and yet you feel afraid.
All this is because you have not fully settled the question as to whether you will serve truth or follow the commandment of man. If you read the teachings of Christ in the spirit of candor, and study carefully the way he taught, and you desire to follow in that way, you will see how imperative is the need of taking a firm, bold stand on Principle, and putting all man-made dogmas under your feet.
