AN OPEN LETTER TO GIRLS AND BOYS

Dear Young Friends:

This is the season when many of you are coming back to school after the summer holidays. I assume that most of you already know something about Christian Science and are attendants at the Sunday School and so will understand my references to this teaching. I am confident that you are familiar with the First Commandment (Ex. 20:3), "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Without doubt you also have read that passage from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy which reads (p. 467), "What are the demands of the Science of Soul?" And the answer is given: "The first demand of this Science is, 'Thou shalt have no other gods before me.' This me is Spirit. Therefore the command means this: Thou shalt have no intelligence, no life, no substance, no truth, no love, but that which is spiritual. The second is like unto it, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.'"
