THE GARMENT OF A CHRISTIAN SCIENTIST

Mary Baker Eddy sometimes uses the words garments and clothes symbolically in referring to states of thought. She writes (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 108), "Ignorance, slang, and malice touch not the hem of the garment of Christian Scientists, for if they did once touch it, they would be destroyed."

What a challenge to every student of Christian Science! He learns how vital and how necessary it is for him to put on the robes of holiness, righteousness, and immortality. And he strives to discard and replace the garments soiled by materiality—by self-pity, self-righteousness, self-indulgence—for the pure garments which clothe God's child. He realizes that progress demands that the misfitting counterfeit be replaced with Christlike raiment.
