THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT

There is a Greek legend concerning a king of Phrygia, who was called Gordius. He fashioned a knot so intricate that no one had been able to untie it. An oracle predicted that he who could do so would become ruler of Asia. According to the legend, Alexander the Great severed the knot with one swift stroke of his sword, thus eliminating the necessity for an involved process of untying the entwined cord.

Mortal thought, or the carnal mind, is constantly devising ways by which to entangle mankind in the cords of false belief. These cords, appearing to many as fear, heredity, contagion, lack, discontent, or discouragement, sometimes seem to bind mortals so firmly that they feel there is no way by which they can extricate themselves.
