Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
8 - - Footsteps of Truth
Clergymen, occupying the watchtowers of the world,
should uplift the standard of Truth. They should so raise
their hearers spiritually, that their listeners
will love to grapple with a new, right idea
and broaden their concepts. Love of Christianity, rather
than love of popularity, should stimulate clerical labor
and progress. Truth should emanate from the pulpit,
but never be strangled there. A special privilege is vested
in the ministry. How shall it be used? Sacredly, in the
interests of humanity, not of sect.
Is it not professional reputation and emolument rather
than the dignity of God's laws, which many leaders seek?
Do not inferior motives induce the infuriated attacks on
individuals, who reiterate Christ's teachings in support
of his proof by example that the divine Mind heals sickness
as well as sin?
