Love That Is Felt

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy makes the significant statement (p. 312), "People go into ecstasies over the sense of a corporeal Jehovah, though with scarcely a spark of love in their hearts."

A Christian Scientist once realized the practical meaning of this statement when she found herself accepting without any apparent reason a darkened and depressed state of thought. When she began to inquire into her thinking for a cause of this unhappiness, the question presented itself, How much do you really love God? And simultaneously with the question came the answer in the words of the apostle, "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?"
