OUR SURE DEFENSE

No one is defenseless. The Scriptures record many instances wherein a sure defense was found in righteousness. They plainly teach that purity is power and that innocence is invulnerable. John the Baptist hailed Christ Jesus as "the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). And it is the Lamb, symbol of innocence, or self-sacrifice, that typifies the power of purity throughout the Scriptures.

It is said that the lamb is an animal which has no means of self-protection. Christ Jesus had no worldly means of defense, but he proved his security in the face of evil's aggressions because he was "without sin." Mary Baker Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 567, 568): "Divine Science shows how the Lamb slays the wolf. Innocence and Truth overcome guilt and error."
