This painting is about the suppositional warfare between Truth and error, evil and good, progress and backsliding, courage and fear. There is a conflict between the evidences of spiritual sense and those of material sense. Spiritual clear-sightedness wins over the blindness of popular belief. Decisive resolve and resolute boundaries win over narcissism, myopia, and hubris. Work on, while wielding the sword of Truth, confident divine Love is ever at hand, your refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Survival and salvation is immanent.
