Never to Discredit

A good rule to follow is never to discredit anyone in the eyes of another indiscriminately. Of course, there are occasions when the truth about the lie of evil needs to be told, but this should never be done uncharitably.

The rule of refraining from personal discrediting is especially meaningful to the Christian Scientist because he has accepted the teaching of the Bible that man is the likeness of God, or Love, and that anything discreditable about an individual is a lie, a false belief, and is not to be attributed to identity. A false belief is a delusion of the carnal mind, not something to be magnified or given reality by repeating or supporting it.
