Believing or Understanding

To believe in Christian Science is certainly better than to believe in materia medica or any other mortal mind delusion ; but only believing in Christian Science does not make one a Christian Scientist. When only believing in Christian Science we can talk with the greatest fluency of the efficacy, the value, the good of it, without being able to prove what we say. When only believing, we can prophesy about, judge and condemn Christian Scientists or non-Christian Scientists with impunity.

When only believing we can be envious, jealous, resentful, hateful, proud, selfish,—plus one or all of the mortal mind qualities, and excuse ourselves on the ground of " righteous indignation " or some form of " self justification or self righteousness."
