CAREFUL STATEMENT

On page 293 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy avers, "Truth talked and not lived, rolls on the human heart a stone." In this statement our great Leader warns us of the dangers of preaching without practice.

Claiming spiritual understanding and convictions which one is making no effort to prove is a danger against which the Christian Scientist should be very much on his guard. The average Christian professes to demonstrate God's nature only in the realm of morals. Although he learns about the power of God, he fails to use it scientifically in healing. The Christian Scientist, on the other hand, is taught to study the power of God with a view to practicing it. He is taught that only as he demonstrates it does he prove that he has understood it.
