The Mote and the Beam

The darkness in one's self must first be cast out, in order rightly to discern darkness or to reflect Light.

On bush and tree and bare brown earthThe glistening snow the wind is heaping,And far beyond the sloping hillsThe lengthening shadows now are creeping.

Whatever may be believed about Christian Science in the form of an objection, it is at least free from the charge of inconsistency, Therefore to take a word, or partial sentence, here and there from its text-book, and construct from that a garbled and obnoxious mis-statement of its teaching —thus alleging inconsistency —is to remind one of the story of the fratricide who pleaded Biblical authority for his deed, and when asked to furnish it, pointed out a passage in Genesis which reads, "Cain rose up against Abel, his brother, and slew him," and from Luke another which reads, "Do thou likewise.

Memory turns back this morning to the year 1897, when everything was very dark to me.
Testimony of Healing
