THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW

From the October 1920 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Moses, in the Ten Commandments gives us instruction as to what is the very basis of Christianity. These commands were not given to us as arbitrary rules showing divine authority, with a demand for blind obedience thereto, but, on the contrary, they reveal to us, through Moses' tenderest solicitude for the welfare of the children of Israel, in accord with his inspiration from on high, the law of God which when understood and obeyed results in absolute freedom from all that claims to bind and oppress.
