Parables II: Spiritual Truth or Wisdom

August 1860

How shall I illustrate this spiritual truth (or wisdom)? I will call it a king, who made a great feast (or science) for man, his son. So he sends wisdom into the minds to call (or reason) about this great feast (or science). They - that is, their errors - prevented them from understanding, so he sent other ideas (or arguments) to convince the error, so that it could understand.

But the error made light of the truth and went their way and would not reason; so that it could not get any foothold, as yet. So the error ridiculed any idea that would rise in the minds that this truth ever could be reduced to a science. They discarded from their minds all idea of a science - but admitted it as a gift or power.

So when the king had failed to reduce this truth to a science, because of the errors of the age, it was wroth; and it sent forth its power and destroyed these errors that were murdering its science, and by its truth, burnt up their old theory (or society). “Then,” said he, “the wedding (or science) is ready to be understood by man (or the son).”
