The Soft Answer

As the lawyers tempted Jesus, asking his views on material affairs, so does mortal mind to-day tempt the student of Christian Science. The student, ever ready to give a reason for the hope that is in him, should distinguish between questions put by seekers for Truth and those asked out of craftiness.

If it is asked what we think of doctors or ministers; what of this or that denomination; what of marriage and parentage; what of the ultimate possibilities of Science; what of political questions or personages; or what of this or that prevalent custom, it is well to remember that it is not personal conclusions but the truth of Christian Science which should be given to the world.
