The Lectures

Introductions to Lectures


Lecturer: Mrs. Louise Knight Wheatley Cook; introduced by Charles G. Bertenshaw, who said:—

The beginning of a new year is a time when men recall the simple virtues of life and their rewards. They resolve to cast off that which has brought discord, and thereafter to be more loving, honest, and sincere, in order that they may experience a more harmonious life. Noble as these efforts may be, however, they sometimes fall short of their purpose for lack of a scientific understanding of God to sustain them. What is the answer? St. Paul sounded the keynote to the solution of this problem in his first epistle to the Corinthians, when he said, "I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified." In other words, "I resolved to be governed only by the Christ-consciousness, which destroys mortal error." That Paul had demonstrated this is evident from these words in Romans: "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? . . . Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." Resolutions, therefore, to be dependable and fruitful, must be based on the of God as the only power.
