Miscellaneous Writings (1883-1896) by Mary Baker Eddy

   It is sometimes said, cynically, that Christian Scientists
set themselves on pedestals, as so many petty deities;
but there is no fairness or propriety in the aspersion.
   Man is not equal to his Maker.  That which is formed
is not cause, but effect; and has no underived power.
But it is possible, and dutiful, to throw the weight of
thought and action on the side of right, and to be thus
lifted up.
   Man should be found not claiming equality with, but
growing into, that altitude of Mind which was in Christ
Jesus.  He should comprehend, in divine Science, a
recognition of what the apostle meant when he said:
"The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that
we are the children of God:  and if children, then heirs;
heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ."
