From the June 1924 issue of The Christian Science Journal

MERELY to state that Christian Science is founded upon so distinctive a basis that it is necessarily differentiated from all other philosophies and religions does not carry conviction. Similarly, to assert sweepingly that the divine Principle underlying it constitutes the one and only true God makes no great appeal, unless there is unfolded a concept of God which is dearer than any that has before been entertained; for, ignorant though he may be of the fact, a mortal's right activities are conditioned upon his individual understanding of God; and no true reform can be consummated save through a transformation of thought originating in a clearer knowledge of what God really is.
