The Goodness of God Available to All

Sometimes, perhaps, students of Christian Science are apt to make too much distinction between Christian Scientists and those who are not Christian Scientists. There is a distinction of course, for Christian Science has brought to this age an understanding of the words and the works of Jesus that no other religion has done, and therefore a student of Christian Science has a tremendous privilege in that he has the opportunity to learn and understand about God and man in a clearer and more practical way than those of other religions. At the same time it is well to be alert and watchful in case one is tempted to make the wrong kind of distinction.

Perhaps we know of some one who is in great need of Christian Science but we do not like to approach him on the subject for fear that he will not understand. Then again, we might know some one else who is beginning to learn about this new-old teaching of Truth and Love but we think he knows so very little that anything we might say on the subject would be beyond him and he might not understand, and so withhold from him the very words which might encourage and help. Possibly we keep away from some of our friends because they are not Christian Scientists—because we think it would be difficult to demonstrate Christian Science "in that atmosphere." And so, perhaps without realizing it, we might go on separating our friends from Christian Science—from that which rightfully belongs to them—the knowledge and understanding of God, forgetting that there is no place where God is not.
