We believe that selfishness can be cured only by religion...

From the July 1909 issue of The Christian Science Journal


We believe that selfishness can be cured only by religion —by a social religion, the aim of which is not to land the believer in heaven but to reform human nature upon earth. Religion has never fairly set itself to that direct object, though incidentally it has done much to promote it, often without intending it, and sometimes in spite of its own dogmatic precepts.
