The object of the teachings of all Christian denominations...

Ottawa (Ill.) Republican Times

[The Daily Republican-Times of Ottawa, Ill., comments as follows upon Mrs. Eddy's letter which appeared in a number of daily papers and was copied in the Sentinel of Aug. 17 under the caption, "Mrs. Eddy describes her human ideal."—Editor Sentinel.]

The object of the teachings of all Christian denominations is precisely that which is "nearest and dearest to the heart" of Mrs. Eddy—an honest man or woman, "one who leavens the loaf of life with justice, mercy, truth, and love." The "real man" is the nearest possible approach to the divine model revealed in the Scriptures alone and demonstrated constantly in the lives of men and women belonging to all church denominations. No one can attain the manhood and womanhood of the divine ideal who does not "steadfastly and actively strive for perfection."
