"Unspotted from the world"

"To keep himself unspotted from the world" (James 1:27) is the deep desire of the earnest Christian who longs to walk with God. But how can this desire be done? As we carry on our daily work, how may we keep ourselves pure, unspotted by wordly thinking and reasoning? Christian Scientists who begin the day by turning to their Father-Mother God in gratitude for blessings received, with thanksgiving that the dawning day belongs to God, good, and with the understanding that all men are brethren because they all have one origin, even God, Spirit, are obeying the admonition, "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."

When we let Christ, Truth, uproot superstition from our thoughts, correct false beliefs, and deny the false claims of material sense, we have prepared ourselves to withstand what we may hear or see of false mortal beliefs rising in opposition to God, perfect Mind. We have opened the door of our thinking to holy thoughts; to honesty, integrity, charity, kindness, patience, mercy, and other true spiritual qualities.
