THE ARMOUR OF GOD
The armour of God is faith in the good, the enduring and the true. Against such there is no law. That is, (page 190) against truth nothing can stand. The armour of God suggests protection to those who believe in and trust the law of Good. With this armour,—knit together by that thread of unity running through all, strong with the strength of the Almighty, burnished with clear vision and true estimates of life and reality,—we are safe. We abide under the shadow of the everlasting Truth. With Moses we can say, "underneath are the everlasting arms."
The breastplate of righteousness covers and gives sanctuary to the heart of hearts, the innermost soul of man. The feet, shod with the gospel of peace, can travel and not become weary; for "His ways are pleasant ways and all His paths are paths of peace."
And the shield of faith shall quench the fiery darts of the wicked. The positive thought of truth is a shield against which nothing, unlike itself, can stand. In Religious Science we learn that no thought of negation can enter a mind already filled with peace and faith. The suggestion of limitation, fear and doubt cannot find entrance to that mental home where God is enthroned as the supreme guest.
And the sword of God is the word of Truth. This has also been called the two-edged sword, cleaving the false from the true, cutting its way across the path of confusion, uprooting the thistles and briars, clearing the way for truth and beauty to flourish in the home of the soul.
The word of Spirit is not a battle hymn of righteousness, but a pean of praise, a psalm of beauty and a song of joy. "If God be with us, who can be against us?"

(page 191)
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus; who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God;
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
PHILIPPIANS-TWO.
