KNOWING VERSUS FEELING

From the August 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal


No teaching of Christian Science is more distinctive or more significant in its effects than that found in the emphasis which it lays upon demonstrable truth-knowing as the essential factor of Christian faith. In this it presents a great contrast to that very general religious teaching which gives prominence to unquestioning belief as the ground of our salvation, and to an ecstatic state of emotion as the evidence that one is saved or forgiven.
