24Christianity. Divine Love is our hope, strength, and shield. We have nothing to fear when Love is at the helm of thought, but everything to enjoy on earth and

27in heaven.

The systematized centres of Christian Science are life- giving fountains of truth. Our churches, The Christian

30Science Journal, and the Christian Science Quarterly, are prolific sources of spiritual power whose intellectual, moral, and spiritual animus is felt throughout the land.

1Our Publishing Society, and our Sunday Lessons, are of inestimable value to all seekers after Truth. The Com-

3mittee on Sunday School Lessons cannot give too much time and attention to their task, and should spare no research in the preparation of the Quarterly as an educa-

6tional branch.

The teachers of Christian Science need to watch inces- santly the trend of their own thoughts; watch that these

9be not secretly robbed, and themselves misguided, and so made to misteach others. Teachers must conform strictly to the rules of divine Science announced in the

12Bible and their textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." They must themselves practise, and teach others to practise, the Hebrew Decalogue, the Ser-

15mon on the Mount, and the understanding and enuncia- tion of these according to Christ.

They must always have on armor, and resist the foe

18within and without. They cannot arm too thoroughly against original sin, appearing in its myriad forms: pas- sion, appetites, hatred, revenge, and all the et cetera of

21evil. Christian Scientists cannot watch too sedulously, or bar their doors too closely, or pray to God too fer- vently, for deliverance from the claims of evil. Thus

24doing, Scientists will silence evil suggestions, uncover their methods, and stop their hidden influence upon the lives of mortals. Rest assured that God in His wisdom

27will test all mankind on all questions; and then, if found faithful, He will deliver us from temptation and show us the powerlessness of evil, — even its utter nothingness.
