266 — WATCH lest in retreating from error, you cling to some phase of it that seems good, since error can use one phase which you accept as real, as a means of establishing other claims as real. Mrs. Eddy once said, “One error rides in on another.”
Lot’s wife represented the last human tie that seemed good to Lot as he retreated from materiality.
