A College Student Writes

Persistence Needed in Dissolving Error

Where I go to college the library is the most-used building on the campus. It has several steps leading to the entrance, and the top three steps are worn down from many feet stepping in the same spot over the years. It would be foolish for anyone to say, "I'm going to stamp on one of these steps so hard that I'll make a hole in it; and if this doesn't work, well, then I'll know that these steps are too solid ever to give way."' The steps appear to be a very hard, immovable, material bulk, but by constant use the stone has been worn down.

Sometimes a mortal belief may seem to be very difficult to subdue, but one must be persistent in holding to what he knows is true of God and of His reflection, man.

No matter how stubborn a false belief may be, it is still a belief, and mere beliefs are not real or permanent. One can always reverse them by putting his understanding of spiritual truths into practice; but it is necessary to be persistent.
