Christian Science Practice Is Righteous Judgment

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." Perhaps no one more than the Christian Science practitioner sees the necessity and difficulty of obeying this command of the Master. Sometimes a practitioner realizes that without much compassionate thought or accurate information on his part he has himself been accepting circumstances assumed to be true humanly but, with correct information, found to be a tragic misrepresentation.

When we see how easy it is to judge erroneously even from the human viewpoint, we should realize how clear spiritual thought must be in order to judge according to God's standard. Correct human knowledge and mere human decisions are not the spiritually righteous judgments required for healing humanity's woes. Until we realize that the real and only man is the son of God, the idea of divine Mind, therefore eternally Godlike and Mindlike, we shall not be judging truly righteous judgment.
