From the June 1907 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Whenever a new and higher vision of Truth is proclaimed to the world, human ignorance and prejudice invariably render contemporary impressions regarding its advent and meaning more or less hazy and inaccurate, even as a dense fog causes objects to appear abnormal and indistinct. A righteous estimate of any great spiritualizing movement can be acquired only as the germinal concept from which it springs is distinguished from the incidental and contingent features which appear in the course of its historical development and which constitute its mental and moral environment.
