Second Principle. Mental stability is the ability to think doctrine and divine viewpoint under pressure, which is also courage.
Third Principle. Mental stability is the ability to make correct and accurate application of metabolized doctrine in time of testing.
Fourth Principle. Mental stability is void of any thinking in the realm of psychotic, neurotic, or psychopathic tendencies.
Fifth Principle. Mental stability is the spiritual ability to pass thought testing as a category of momentum testing.
