Omaha (Neb.) World-Herald

Succinctly defined by Mrs. Eddy, the mission of Christian Science is "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind" (The Christian Science Monitor, Nov. 25, 1908). This definition but restates the golden rule, and the follower of Christ heeds this behest; constantly he strives to express, in thought and deed, to all who come within the radius of his life, kindness, mercy, patience, unselfishness, and the other qualities of divine Love.

A departure from this line of conduct may indicate not so much a desire for evil, as ignorance of good and the way to achieve it. Christian Science explains this way so simply that a child can demonstrate it in a degree, and yet its teaching is so profound that the scholar, catching its import, discovers his thought allied to a star, which, faithfully followed, leads to God's endless day. In the unfolding of this day is found a surcease from sorrow and suffering, for man recognizes himself as God's child, endowed with every good thing, and the capacity richly to enjoy these blessings.
