THE FREEDOM OF PROHIBITION

From the September 1920 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Although a cursory glance might cause some readers to think the freedom of prohibition a paradox, metaphysical reasoning indicates that instead of interfering with individual liberty, prohibition, by denying to man sin, sickness, and death, reveals him as the unfettered idea of Mind—free from the bondage of evil. Divine intelligence maintaining its likeness, the forever untrammeled manifestation of consciousness, prohibits man from wrong acting, speaking, or thinking.
