A College Student Writes

Bearing the Standard of Christian Science

Human sense would have us believe that the period called adolescence is fraught with difficulty. Christian Science can relieve voting men and women of the encumbrance of ungodlike qualities with which mortal mind would saddle them.

One persistent but erroneous claim that would deprive young persons of their true being is that they acquire sophistication by rejecting traditional concepts in general and religion in particular. Another claim is that happiness and acceptance by others are gained by adherence to codes of behavior set by a majority of mortal minds. These two false beliefs may tempt the young person to be indifferent, apologetic, or embarrassed about being a Christian Scientist.
