Hatred Overcome

When the writer became interested in Christian Science and found that it is a religion of love, it seemed quite impossible for her to love her fellow men as we are taught to do. There was a strong sense of hatred toward one who had been a friend of the family for many years, and this sense, which was roused at any mention of the person's name, seemed to increase as the years went on.

One day, while reading the Lesson-Sermon, attention was drawn to the statement of Christ Jesus that "there is nothing from without a man, entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man." This passage was carefully studied, and it was noted that in response to the inquiry of the disciples Jesus told them of the things which entered into and the things which came out of a man. Immediately the thought came to me that this explained an ailment from which I had suffered for a considerable period. With this illumination came a great desire to love my fellow beings, and the fact that I was healed was speedily made apparent.
