F rater Perdurabo is the most honest of all the great religious teachers. Others have said: Believe me! He says: Don't believe me! He does not ask for followers; would despise and refuse them. He wants an independent and self-reliant body of students to follow out their own methods of research. If he can save them time and trouble by giving a few useful tips, his work will have been done to his own satisfaction. Those who have wished men to believe in them were absurd. A per suasive tongue or pen, or an efficient sword, with rack and stake, pro duced this belief, which is contrary to, and destructive of, all real religious experience.
