[Part of a sermon delivered in Chickering Hall, September 4, 1887, and now published by request.]

From the October 1887 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In calling Abraham the Lord said unto him, "Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from, thy father's house, into a land that I will show thee. " What were Abraham's country, his kindred, and his father's house? His country was mortal mind; his kindred , the thoughts that are akin to mortal mind, the aggregate of which compose mortal mind, such as envy, jealousy, malice, hate, selfishness, and the desire for worldly things.
