From the November 1913 issue of The Christian Science Journal

DOUBT is never a good thing, for it tends to cripple action, and neither prevents us doing wrong nor aids us to perceive the right; for this reason it is a subtle enemy which should be attacked and overcome. In this connection it is interesting to note, in many of the Bible narratives, the various expressions of doubt uttered by mortal mind when confronted by spiritual truth; for we have all at times been assailed by doubt and, according to our understanding, we have either covered it up, nursed it until it became a full-grown conviction, or, best of all, destroyed it.
