Moral courage never gives way to adverse circumstances. As the instrument of divine Principle it stands firm and conquers all opponents. Moral courage is the exact opposite of moral weakness. Moral courage upholds justice, honesty, purity. It stands for right in the midst of seething wrong and moves with assurance even when the way seems dark and dangerous.
Mary Baker Eddy, writing in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," says (p. 514): "Moral courage is 'the lion of the tribe of Juda,' the king of the mental realm. Free and fearless it roams in the forest. Undisturbed it lies in the open field, or rests in green pastures, ... beside the still waters."'
Moral idiocy attempts to pattern moral courage, but inevitably fails in its attempts. It flagrantly sets aside moral law and employs fear, threats, and evil suggestions to promote its own ends. It robs, lies, and commits adultery without any sense of shame or self-condemnation.
