Bear No False Witness!

Christian Science throws a wonderful light upon the Bible, including the Ten Commandments, that fundamental statement of moral law. Many have regarded the Commandments as only partially applicable to human affairs and the relationships between men. They have broadly admitted their value and, indeed, have gone so far as to make them the basis of sound civil law, but it remained for Mrs. Eddy to reveal to the world that each and all of the Ten Commandments have a very definite place with regard to daily thinking, the mental attitude of everyone.

To illustrate this point we have but to turn to any one of the Commandments. For instance, take the words of the ninth: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." This command has no limited application. In the light of Christian Science we recognize the depth of its meaning; and we are arrested and greatly helped by seeing its application to every phase of human experience.
