THE CHIEF CORNER STONE

From the September 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Just as the corner stone of any building is that stone which lying at the corner of two walls unites those walls at the foundation, so the Christ, as understood in Christian Science, shows man to be united to his fellow man on the basis of one Principle, God. Just as to build a superstructure without regard to the corner stone or foundation is to sacrifice the strength and beauty of an edifice, so, according to Christian Science, to live without regard to this fundamental spiritual law is to sacrifice the harmony and peace of existence.
