The Lectures

PITTSBURGH, PA. (First Church).—John Randall Dunn, lecturer; introduced by Franklin Dickey, who said in part:—

It is recorded in the gospel of John that Jesus, when seeking to instruct the thought of his disciples, said to them: "If ye continue in my word, . . . ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." It is evident that what Jesus had in mind was not freedom from good things, because no one would wish to be freed from them, but rather freedom from the things which are seemingly opposed to good, freedom from sin, and disease, and lack, and unrest, and the many like evils, to be subject to which is bondage. This statement of Jesus is a plain setting forth of the means by which such freedom is to be gained, and because the law underlying his statement has been brought to light again in our age, this way of escape from evil has become available to us, and its efficacy is again being demonstrated as it was in Jesus' time. This freedom from evil is not to be attained by physical might of any kind. The plain statement of Jesus is that it is to be gained by knowing the truth; that is, the truth about God, the truth about man, and the truth about man's relation to God.
