    The great red dragon symbolizes a lie, — the belief that substance, life, and intelligence can be material. This dragon stands for the sum total of human error. The ten horns of the dragon typify the belief that matter has power of its own, and that by means of an evil mind in matter the Ten Commandments can be broken.

    This citation suggests that the more I strive to obey the Ten Commandments, the more God’s Allness becomes real and the more likely I will realize evil’s unreality or lies and overcome its many forms. This is a refreshing reminder to connect the obedience of the Ten Commandments with the acknowledgment of God’s Allness. This aids the overcoming of the awful, deceitful sense of “life in matter!” When I see evil as a lie, I see God as all that can be.

    Thank you for this post. This is the first time I really understood that the “ten horns” had anything to with the Ten Commandments, and the material erroneous belief that they could “be broken.” And for “the more I strive to obey the Ten Commandments, the more God’s Allness becomes real and the more likely I will realize evil’s unreality or lies and overcome its many forms” that really shows how important it is to obey them! So grateful for this lesson and for the lesson writer and for all we are taught in this church.
