"Loose him, and let him go"

[Original Article in German]

When Jesus raised Lazarus of Bethany from the dead, he said (John 11:44), "Loose him, and let him go." Many Biblical events and statements have not only a factual significance with regard to the occurrence in question, but also a spiritual meaning which is timeless. Thus the words of Christ Jesus may be taken to signify, Recognize that man lives, never dies, and goes on living; loose him from any other sense of being.

It is very important that we be consistent in obeying this admonition. We must loose each one of our fellow men from the false material beliefs that would bind him to sin, sickness, and death, and let him go. Wherever we observe error, either of a physical or of a mental nature, we must realize that it is no part of man, but merely a fictitious belief, not a person; for the only real Person is God, infinite Person, whose perfection man individually reflects. Hence any error which seems to adhere to us is no part of our true spiritual individuality.
