The fall of error
The way of error is awful to contemplate. The illusion
of sin is without hope or God. If man's spiritual
gravitation and attraction to one Father, in
whom we "live, and move, and have our being,"
"should be lost, and if man should be governed by
corporeality instead of divine Principle, by body instead
of by Soul, man would be annihilated. Created by flesh
instead of by Spirit, starting from matter instead of from
God, mortal man would be governed by himself. The
blind leading the blind, both would fall.
Passions and appetites must end in pain. They are
"of few days, and full of trouble." Their supposed joys
are cheats. Their narrow limits belittle their gratifications,
and hedge about their achievements with thorns.
