Bearing True Witness

In the twentieth chapter of Exodus we find the words, "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." What a wealth of love is contained in this commandment; and what protection for each individual lies in rendering obedience thereto!

The early training of one student of Christian Science, received in a home devoted to an orthodox religion, impressed upon her the fact that in the usually accepted sense one must never utter false testimony against another. While the instruction covered but a very limited field, it is cause for humble gratitude that the home training prepared the way for a higher understanding of this commandment, as taught in Christian Science. This also made it comparatively easy to grasp and to obey its mandate, for the student was actuated by a greater sense of love for God and man, which Christian Science inculcates—a love which so spiritualizes human consciousness that one's thought heals and blesses wherever it may rest.
