and saves.
   Schisms, imagination, and human beliefs are not
parts of Christian Science; they darken the discernment
of Science; they divide Truth's garment and cast
lots for it.
   Seeing a man in the moon, or seeing a person in the
picture of Jesus, or believing that you see an individual
who has passed through the shadow called death, is
not seeing the spiritual idea of God; but it is seeing
a human belief, which is far from the fact that portrays
Life, Truth, Love.
   May these words of the Scriptures comfort you: "The
Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God
thy glory."  "The city had no need of the sun, neither
of the moon, to shine in it:  for the glory of God did
lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof."  "Ye
are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy
nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the
praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into
His marvellous light."  "Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance
of the saints in light:  who hath delivered us from
the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the
kingdom of His dear Son."  "Ye were sometimes darkness,
but now are ye light in the Lord:  walk as children
of light."

Mrs. Eddy's Reply

   "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: . . . enter
thou into the joy of thy lord" - the satisfaction of
meeting and mastering evil and defending good, thus
predicating man upon divine Science.  (See Science
and Health, p. 227.)
