Article VIII

GUIDANCE OF MEMBERS


A Rule for Motives and Acts. Section 1.
Neither animosity nor mere personal attachment
should impel the motives or acts of the members
of The Mother Church. In Science, divine Love
alone governs man; and a Christian Scientist
reflects the sweet amenities of Love, in rebuking
sin, in true brotherliness, charitableness, and
forgiveness. The members of this Church should
daily watch and pray to be delivered from
all evil, from prophesying, judging, condemning,
counseling, influencing or being influenced
erroneously.


To be Read in Church. Sect. 2. The
above Church Rule shall be read in The Mother
Church and in the branch churches by the First
Reader on the first Sunday of each month.
On Communion day the Church Tenets are to
be read.
