Principle not person

Originally published in the 1915 pamphlet titled “‘What went ye out for to see?’”


Nineteen centuries have elapsed since the star stood over Bethlehem and proclaimed the coming of the man who was to bring "on earth peace, good will toward men." Any one reading the gospel story of that night must be impressed with the vastness of the vision which came to those wise men who, perceiving an idea far larger possibly than they could themselves interpret, came bearing their gifts to the young child. They told Herod that Bethlehem was not the least among the princes of Judah, because out of it should come "a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel" The Discoverer of Christian Science, Mrs. Eddy, declares that "the Wisemen were led to behold and to follow this daystar of divine Science, lighting the way to eternal harmony" (Science and Health, Pref., p. vii ).
