PURITY AND ITS PRINCIPLE

To the question, "What is purity?" Christian Science answers that in the highest sense it is a primal quality of infinite, eternal Mind, divine Principle, called God, and is reflected in individual spiritual consciousness, or man. The demonstration of pure manhood exterminates every form of error or impurity. It restores to mankind health, peace, friendship, love, supply. The Bible implies this great truth in James (3:17): "The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits."

An example of the ability of pure thought to achieve and bless is found in the life of Moses. The pure consciousness of Moses enabled him to discover and establish laws which have blessed mankind for centuries. The Ten Commandments are the basis of many laws which govern mankind today. The purity of thought which accompanied his discovery of God's law made an unforgettable impression on those who saw Moses at the time, so much so that the radiancy of his face was noted, as recorded in the thirty-fourth chapter of Exodus.
