The Christlike View
One who has accepted Christian Science has signified his intention to gain a Christlike view of his neighbor. He carries out that intention in the degree that he applies himself to the task of overcoming the belief in himself as a mortal with a mortal, material mind. From the standpoint of this false belief, one's neighbor is another mortal. But as one overcomes this belief he is able to see his neighbor as a divine idea, the reflection of God; this is the Christlike view which heals.
A sense of superiority of one individual over another is mortal. A sense of superiority over evil is spiritual. A Christlike view of a neighbor includes the discernment of his real selfhood and admiration for what is seen, but it also includes the condemnation of evil which may claim for the moment to be the neighbor. Christliness includes justice, and justice demands barring the door of human consciousness to this evil or expelling it if it seems to have gained entrance. But Christliness is always ready to help the neighbor who desires to separate himself from evil.
Under God's government an individual is always free to separate himself from evil. But until he does, one may find himself barred from respectability, along with that which he has falsely accepted as his own mental qualities.
