TRUE LIBERTY

Abraham Lincoln in a speech in Baltimore, Maryland, in April, 1864, said, "We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing." This has been evident in the world of late, and Christian Scientists must let their light shine through the darkness of mortal sense in order to help others find the way to understand the true meaning of liberty.

A dictionary defines "liberty" as "the freedom from arbitrary or despotic government; ... freedom from control, interference, ... restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice." Let us see how we may bring these qualities of liberty into our present experience. We have God-bestowed power to think rightly and to act rightly; therefore we can make the proper choice between that which tends toward liberty and that which leans in the direction of tyranny.
