The frequent warnings to be found throughout the Scriptures...

From the July 1914 issue of The Christian Science Journal

THE frequent warnings to be found throughout the Scriptures against heedlessness or disobedience, indicate the possibility that men may lose what of truth they have perceived, unless they "hold fast" to it and guard it as a priceless treasure. This is declared in words of solemn import in the book of Deuteronomy, where the curses and the blessings are outlined; and again in Proverbs, where we read that long life and prosperity will be the sure portion of those who seek wisdom from its divine source and then hold it as the one thing of value.
