Principles and Practices - October 14

Is Our Mind Christian?

Mind is something between mere intellect and conduct. It is both a view and a behaviour. It is something more than character, as it implies a relish and a keenness for wide views - ­a thing not necessarily contained in character. Mind, again, has a practical side which does not belong to mere intellect, or to speculative thought, and is more intimately part of our individual life than abstract truths, or doctrinea held by our faith.
