Always Right

The feeling that one is always right about everything is an undesirable human characteristic. It makes people try to have the last word; it fosters superiority and intolerance; and it even leads to warfare. Clearly this self-righteousness is a distortion of the demand for perfection voiced by Christ Jesus, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."  Matt. 5:48;

Through Christian Science one can put off self-righteousness by learning progressively to subjugate and destroy all the false claims of a finite, personal sense of self as a fallible mortal, stubborn or confused. Acknowledging that man is, in reality, the reflection of God, good, and consequently as perfect as God, is the key to overcoming all obstacles to perfection. Proving the Rightness, or righteousness, of man as God's perfect, spiritual child requires much patience and perseverance.
