Advancement by sacrifice
Christianity causes men to turn naturally from matter
to Spirit, as the flower turns from darkness to light.
Man then appropriates those things which "eye hath
not seen nor ear heard." Paul and John
had a clear apprehension that, as mortal man
achieves no worldly honors except by sacrifice,
so he must gain heavenly riches by forsaking all
worldliness. Then he will have nothing in common with the
worldling's affections, motives, and aims. Judge not the
future advancement of Christian Science by the steps
already taken, lest you yourself be condemned for failing
to take the first step.
