Thoughts from the Lesson Sermon:
The Bible: "...take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done
all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with
the equipment of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take
the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Ephesians 6:13-17 (RSV)
Science and Health: "The necromancy of yesterday foreshadowed the mesmerism and hypnotism of today." p.322:15-19
"Will -blind, stubborn, and headstrong - cooperates with with appetite and passion. From this cooperation arises its evil. From this also comes its
powerlessness, since all power belongs to God, good." p. 490:8-11
