An Important Question

Secular as well as religious history records innumerable instances where man has asked the question, "What shall I do that I may live?"

Many persons have essayed to answer this very important inquiry, and, strange to say, few relatively have been willing to accept the only clearly intelligent answer that has ever been given.

The Bible is accepted by all professed Christians as an inspired book, in which the will of God is transmitted to men in terms that they can comprehend. Throughout the Bible we are taught that all wisdom, understanding, creative force, and manifestation are in God and are of God, and yet men pass their years groping in darkness and refuse the light, because it is not manifested in keeping with their circumscribed determination to cling to effect rather than to seek causation. The teaching of Jesus the Christ pointed ever to causation, to the absoluteness of God, and he persistently adhered to the invariable law of spiritual cause and effect. Jesus overcame all false sense of manifestation through his knowledge of the only real causation, and demonstrated the truth of his declarations by his works; but men have been entranced by the effects of Jesus' teaching rather than impelled to action which is in harmony with his teaching.
