XXIV.20 Continuation of the same subject

, par Stewart

The sacred books of the ancient Persians said : “If you want to be holy, instruct your children, because all the good deeds they do will be imputed to you.” [1] They advised marrying early, because the children would be like a bridge on Judgment Day, and those who had no children would not be able to cross over. These doctrines were false, but they were very useful.
