CHRISTIAN CITIZENSHIP

A good many Christian Scientists appear to be at a loss to decide what is their duty in regard to politics,—what they should do and how much they should do as individuals in the way of taking part in national, state, and municipal elections; but it would seem that these questions should not be difficult of answer.

Plainly it is the duty of every citizen to participate in the government of his country, and he is the best citizen who most carefully, prayerfully, and punctually exercises his right of suffrage. This does not mean that the admittedly undesirable in political methods shall be perpetuated, nor that blind and unreasoning partisanship should govern the actions of any one. Right thinking and right acting must be paramount in the domain of public as well as personal affairs; and in order to bring about this condition, rightly directed individual effort is required. The people who stand for civic righteousness and just and equitable laws and their impartial administration, cannot delegate their duty in this regard to those who are not actuated by unselfish motives.
