The Snare is Broken
Paul says, "For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor." These words give a quick and needful rebuke to the temptation to believe that an error which has been dispelled in the past has some subtle power to reappear. The Bible says, "Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth."
Truly "Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers" (mortal beliefs), and better yet, "the snare is broken," for we have been taught in Science and Health how the snare was made to seem so strong, how we were deluded, how that all the time it was ignorance of what we were and what God was to His creations, that snared (held) us.
A story is told of Lincoln, of how he handled a charge of murder preferred against a young country lad, by a man who testified that he saw the boy commit the deed in a certain beech wood near the village, that he "saw him by the light of the moon." The mother of the boy engaged Lincoln in defence. He came once to the place and was not seen again until the day of the trial. In the mean time the prosecuting attorney had made much stir among the villagers, and all had visited the spot and waited with much impatience the coming of the young lawyer who was to defend the case. Lincoln came and listened in silence to the testimony which seemed so conclusive.
