DEFENDING OUR HERITAGE

When the Apostle Paul said to the Ephesians (6:11), "Put on the whole armour of God," they undoubtedly understood that this armor was not the material armor used in battle. It was the armor of salvation, wholly spiritual, fashioned of the qualities which Paul pointed out, such as truth, righteousness, peace, and faith. And furthermore, they knew that clad in this armor of God and with "the sword of the Spirit," they could go forth to overcome all evil, for they would then be relying wholly upon the power of God.

From his own experience Paul knew what lay ahead for all Christian warriors; to have full protection, they must be spiritually prepared for any attack, sudden or otherwise. He himself had proved that putting on "the whole armour of God" left not a crack for error to enter; complete security is found only in spiritual preparedness. Thus Paul illustrated that protection is our divine heritage. Divine protection is also the lesson taught by Christian Science, for we learn through Science that man, forever reflecting and expressing God, is continuously preserved and protected; and this truth is what we are to defend.
