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.
