Excerpt from The Christian Science Journal, Vol. 28: April, 1910
Nothing but evil can result from unnecessarily tempor izing with evil. If one panders in any degree to the sense of anger, envy. Malice. Etc., he can reap only like conditions therefrom. The asserted selfhood of evil has neither the capacity to receive nor to bestow any good. It can be cor rected, and so destroyed. But it cannot rise above its own falsity. Evil is evil, in whatever form or personality it seems to appear. And one's only hope for a better state is to turn from this false self and seek the spiritual reality of man, in which there is no thought or possibility of evil. The carnal nature is depraved to the last degree, and its individualized expression in mortal man is not the type of true manhood. But its opposite. Humanity needs to be saved from this counterfeit through the spiritual idea in Christian Science. Even the new man which, as St. Paul declares, is created in righteousness and true holiness. Every mortal has but to look within his own heart to know the necessity of self-denial. And knowing this he should seek earnestly to obey it. Until he rises ultimately to the standard of manhood in Christ Jesus.
The worldly-minded Christian, if such a term may be used. May believe Jesus' demand to be impracticable in actual experience. But the Christian Scientist finds it to be not only eminently practicable, but the only effective way by which to realize health and holiness. His concessions to material belief are only by reason of his lack of spiritual understanding, but in his heart he condemns that which for the time he allows. Because the student's understand ing of the spiritual truth of being is incomplete, he does not at present fully demonstrate it; but if loyal to what he knows, he will miss no Opportunity to put down the ma terial self, with all its false accompaniments, and so rise by degrees to the realization of what man is as the son of God.
