INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY

From the January 1922 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Jesus ' insistence upon the responsibility of the individual for the working out of his own salvation was very emphatically stated in his memorable words uttered in the upper chamber at the close of his last supper with his disciples. He had taught them for three years, proving and illustrating the truth he revealed by miracle and parable, and he had often emphasized the necessity for individual effort by saying, in effect: Go and do thou likewise.
