30 — WATCH lest you forget that human opinions expressed by a student of Christian Science who is neglecting to demonstrate wisdom from God, have no more value than opinions expressed by the children of this world — in fact even less, since the latter are wiser from the human standpoint than the children of light, who are taught to rely on divine wisdom, and so give up all else. Hence they take fewer steps to gain the wisdom of this world, than do the children of darkness. When they momentarily abandon the standpoint of demonstration, therefore, their human opinions are not the result of a greatly developed human intellect.
If Christian Scientists have any slogan at all, it should be: Whatever proceeds from the human mind is in its last analysis opposed to God, and hence destructive, even though it has been improved by truth; so let us seek demonstrated wisdom, and give up all else as fast as possible.
