Proof, not Profession

It is impossible to be a Christian Scientist without apprehending the moral law so clearly, that, for conscience sake, one will either abandon his claim to even a knowledge of this Science, or else make the claim valid" (Miscellaneous Writings by Mary Baker G. Eddy, p. 261).

In every walk of life we are called upon to give proof in substantiation of all claims to the possession of property or of ability and, in many instances, of knowledge. When a man applies for a position in which a certain line of work is to be performed, he must "make the claim valid" by exhibiting indubitable proof of his possession of the requisite ability. If he would assume to do stenographic work his prospective employer rarely if ever considers it essential that he be a graduate of a particular school or of any school. All that is required is that he shall be able to prove his right to the title of stenographer, and until he can demonstrate that right, he is not, and certainly has no right to style himself, a stenographer.
