CONFORMITY TO RIGHT STANDARDS

Thoughtful women and men acknowledge the need for conformity to high standards which have been evolved by society for its betterment and protection. But they are disturbed by what appears to be thoughtless conformity to mass standards of taste and conduct, regardless of their value.

Christ Jesus, the most individual and original man who ever trod the earth, said (John 5: 19), "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." This saying indicates that the Master recognized the necessity of conforming to the Christ, his spiritual selfhood as the perfect reflection of God. This in no way denied his individuality or originality, nor did it interfere with his spontaneity of expression.
