JESUS THE CHRIST

Novices in Christian Science need to be on their guard against the notion that their new-found freedom of thought gives them license to discuss grave theological problems in a flippant manner, and in no other matter is greater care needed, on the part of beginners, than in speaking of Christ Jesus.

Mrs. Eddy in the chapter on Atonement and Eucharist has clearly indicated how Christian Scientists should regard Jesus. She speaks for every true Christian Scientist in the sentence, "We adore Jesus" (Science and Health, p. 26); and surely if ever there was an occasion when speech would be silvern and silence golden, when "mere smatterers in Science" should put off their sandals of "superficial and cold assertion" (Science and Health, p. 460), it is when we whose demonstration lags a long way behind intellectual assent and words, find ourselves tempted to speak of the beliefs of others in terms which are likely not only to awaken surprise, but to bring offense to those who do not understand Christian Science teaching.
