TRUE CHARITY

True charity reflects everlasting Love, God, in all respects. It is therefore always loving, orderly, pure, intelligent, and active in purpose and application. Charity which embodies these characteristics is powerful to do good, to heal, restore, and transform human experience; like all that proceeds from God, it cannot harm, degrade, or corrupt. This was the kind of charity which Christ Jesus taught and practiced and which brought to humanity the most perfect comfort it had ever known.

Christian Science, through its revelation of God and man, makes it possible for all to learn and practice true charity. Science maintains that God, divine Principle, Truth, Life, is immaculate, that is, perfect; and that no imperfection is known to God, is created or tolerated by Him or by the man whom He created. Charity which is based on this premise not only supplies the human need, but also corrects error with truth, while false charity excuses and overlooks unwholesome motives or acts. True charity expresses unselfed love, while the false sense of charity fosters indulgence in self-love, self-will, and self-justification, which Truth denounces.
