There is a school of thinkers who believe that men and women will one day come to be guided by reason, who hope that their moral, spiritual, and intellectual qualities will become so developed that they will cease to do those things which are wrong, those things which are harmful to themselves and others, but will be guided along higher, better paths by something from within. We believe the Christian Scientists practise this belief.... Around us everywhere most things are going right, but many things are happening all the time that are wrong. Are we doing what can be done, what should be done to make things better, to set them right? Are we doing what we should do to keep them from going wrong? Are things predestined to happen? Are they happening for the best as they do happen? Are things done and things left undone by us responsible in part for the tragedies, the mistakes of others? What is the responsibility of each of us? How far does it extend? Where does it stop? All these are questions we should ponder, not now and then, but very often.
