Christian Science teaches that nothing less than a complete spiritualization of thought, motive, and desire will ever get us into heaven, and it does not picture physical luxury or sensuous ease as the goal of Christian striving. It positively does not compound a moral offence. It does not teach that there is no sin in human experience, thereby, as the critic charges, producing "hypocrisy, untruth, and self-love." On the other hand. Christian Science makes it plain that so long as dishonesty or deceit are practised, they bring penalties, and Christian Scientists are taught to forsake sin, for only thereby can we meet Jesus' requirement, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."
