Confidence through Understanding

From the May 14, 1938 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


In his earthly ministry Christ Jesus made it very clear to his followers that in order to escape the injurious effects of limiting and enslaving beliefs they must continually be on guard against wrong thinking. In a parable he likened the kingdom of heaven to ten virgins who started with the same good intentions, but five were foolish and neglected to take with them a supply of oil for their lamps.
