Stability or Emotionalism?

According to the first chapter of Genesis, man is made in the image and likeness of God. This man is spiritual, not subject to mental stresses and strains but continually expressing God. In Christian Science, Mind is used synonymously with God, and students of this religion expand their understanding of God by knowing Him as ever-active, perfect intelligence, always controlling and understanding all that really exists. As we understand Mind's infinite nature, we begin to demonstrate calmness, assurance, stability.

However, if one does not recognize and claim his spiritual sonship with God, he may seem to express qualities apart from Mind. One such characteristic is the tendency to cry or become emotional when difficult situations present themselves or when one is involved with others. Is the man God made expressing these emotions? No. Is a person whom we see having extreme difficulty and needing our sympathy the real picture of man? No.
