A well-balanced person is regarded generally as an individual who exercises good judgment in attending to his human affairs—one who does not swing to extremes in one direction or in another; one who is not precipitate in determining a course of procedure, finding later, perhaps, that it may be necessary to retrace his steps; one who does not procrastinate so that his steps, when taken, lose their effectiveness; one who expresses a high sense of integrity in his dealings with others.
The essential difference between Christian Science and all other religions is that it concedes no reality to matter or material conditions, but relies entirely on spiritual reality as the basis of scientific demonstration or Christian healing.
At a time such as the present, when men generally are seeking in every direction for a solution to the problem of business, working, as it seems, largely in the dark, experimenting with various human theories, harassed by uncertainty and fear—at such a time the Christian Scientist has reason, indeed, to rejoice and be grateful for the sound and demonstrable understanding of true business made available to him through the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.
