THE CHRISTIAN SCIENTIST: HUMANITARIAN

In the Manual of The Mother Church, Mary Baker Eddy makes this statement (Art. VIII, Sect. 22): "A Christian Scientist is a humanitarian; he is benevolent, forgiving, long-suffering, and seeks to overcome evil with good." Our Leader's words call for action, action of thought as well as of deed. They demand that we put love into expression, that we be good Samaritans in the highest sense of this term.

Our Way-shower, Christ Jesus, was the greatest humanitarian the world has ever known. Following in his footsteps, Mrs. Eddy labored tirelessly, unselfishly, patiently, for the salvation of the world from sin, disease, and death. It was not enough that she had found healing for herself through the illumination of thought that came by reading of the healing of the palsied man (Matt. 9:2–8); she must share her great discovery of the undeviating law of spiritual healing with all mankind.
