SCIENTIFIC DOMINION OVER FEAR

The Apostle Paul, who was one of the most metaphysical of the early Christians, wrote to the Corinthians (I Cor. 9:26, 27), "I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection."

Spiritually considered, these words of Paul's are quite as helpful and applicable now as they were then: "So fight I, not as one that beateth the air." In this unusual statement Paul has in a manner described the wrong as well as the right way of meeting evil thought. To beat the air would imply a fearful and frantic effort to combat error on its own false plane and would certainly be an indication that one believed he was confronted with a very real and even desperate situation.
