Mrs. Eddy also wrote to Judge Septimus J. Hanna as follows: "I can do you most good by pointing the path showing the scenes behind the curtain. The united plan of the evildoers is to cause the beginners either in lecturing or teaching or in our periodicals to keep Mrs. Eddy as she is (what God knows of her and revealed to Christ Jesus) out of sight, and to keep her as she is not (just another white-haired old lady) constantly before the public. This kills two birds with one stone. It darkens the spiritual sense of students and misguides the public. Why? because it misstates the idea of the divine Principle that you are trying to demonstrate and hides it from the sense of the people. . . . The truth in regard to your Leader heals the sick and saves the sinner."
Such statements from our Leader emphasize the importance of the following By-law in our Church Manual entitled, "Alertness to Duty": "It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to defend himself daily against aggressive mental suggestion, and not be made to forget nor to neglect his duty to God, to his Leader, and to mankind. By his works he shall be judged, and justified or condemned" (Manual, p. 42).
