A guide does not control, but he does direct, leaving the following up to you.
“Lead us not into temptation” means “guide us out of our own errors.”
“Take up thy cross and follow me” means, “Recognize your errors and choose to abandon them by following my guidance.”
Remember that error cannot really threaten truth, which can always withstand it.
Only the error is really vulnerable.
You are free to establish your kingdom where you see fit, but the right choice is inevitable if you remember this:
Atonement undoes all errors in this respect and thus uproots the real source of fear.
