From the April 1949 issue of The Christian Science Journal

LOYALTY , which derives from the Latin root word lex , or law, has as one meaning that of being allegiant or faithful to recognized authority, whereas obedience means willingness to obey or submit to authority. Divine authority is inflexible law, and obedience to such authority determines true loyalty, for there cannot be complete loyalty without obedience.
