8 — WATCH lest gossip, human opinions, and the “strife of tongues,” upset your thought so that you are tempted to lose your mental poise; to believe that the Cause of Christian Science is going to the dogs, and to doubt the sincerity of other Christian Scientists, your brethren in Christ. Animal magnetism sends forth this miasma, or poison gas, to produce this very effect, to weaken the strong and to divide the ranks. The antidote is the reflection of divine Love, that panoply which enables one to impersonalize error, and to know that in spite of false evidence, God is keeping watch above His own.
