All Can Know the Truth

One of the much-loved promises of the Bible is found in the eleventh verse of the ninety-first Psalm: "He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." In the girl-hood home of the writer there hung a picture of a little boy walking across a log which had fallen six or seven feet above a rushing stream. Beside the child was a traditional picture of an angel with beautiful face and long white wings. The angel was not actually touching the small boy, but one felt the encircling care and knew that the child would not be allowed to slip.

Mary Baker Eddy gives us in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," a new concept of angels, defining them thus (p. 581): "God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality." In accepting this definition we can expect spiritual intuitions to come to us directly from God, and we early learn to know that these pure and perfect intuitions not only direct but protect our footsteps in all that we do.
