Parable, A

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).
