Understanding Our Fellow Man

There is a French proverb which reads, Tout comprendre, c'est tout pardonner—"To understand all is to forgive all." It is a maxim that we as Christian Scientists need to hold before us.

In studying Christian Science we go through many stages of development. And in spite of its perfect teaching, many of us seem to be a long time in getting rid of the habit of destructive criticism. Christian Science teaches that "truth cannot be reversed, but the reverse of error is true," as Mary Baker Eddy says (Science and Health with Key to Scriptures, p. 442); so why not replace destructive criticism with the ideal truth, that we may be instrumental in bringing about healing?
