MONEY THOUGHT – 6 

      Then I begin to look up to Science and hear what it tells me man and woman are, and I go to work to purify myself from the wrong concept. I cut myself off from every person’s thought in every way, never allowing myself a moment in their thought unless to help. But I go on purifying myself of a false human concept, and when help comes from me to another, it is because I have brought out my manhood and womanhood. I see what a dreadful mis­take we have been making and thwarting our dearest desires by looking at things from a mortal standpoint. Jesus never did. He rebuked the Pharisees because they said, “This is good and that is evil. How awful it is. I would not do it.” So they stood aside and would not let their thoughts touch it in any way on account of their great purity. Are we very different today? No, not even we Christian Scientists.   Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.30-31)
