The Individual's Standard

[Of Special Interest to Young Men and Women]

True individuality is smothered by conformity to false material values or by nonconformity to moral and spiritual values. When either is evident, the material standard is claiming to dominate the essentially spiritual one. On the college campus, an onslaught of materialism may tempt us not to hold to the standard of Christian Science.

Mrs. Eddy writes on page 283 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany": "Individuals, as nations, unite harmoniously on the basis of justice, and this is accomplished when self is lost in Love—or God's own plan of salvation. 'To do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly' is the standard of Christian Science." By no rules other than the divine can we achieve health, harmony, alertness, and intelligence. We should always endeavor to live in accordance with the teachings of Christian Science.
