There is music in the word redemption. It means rest from all our labors. God has promised to redeem His people. They shall be redeemed "from the curse of the law." The curse of the law is sin, and "the wages of sin is death." Redemption removes the curse, overcomes mortality, abolishes death, and reveals true Being in the light of Spirit.

To be redeemed, we must understand both the letter and spirit of Christian Science. Divine Science teaches that both are necessary to our redemption and salvation. To be redeemed, we must learn how to overcome self, through understanding the Principle and rule of Christian Science, and demonstrate unselfishness and spirituality. Unselfish love redeems and saves us. Growth, knowledge, and understanding awaken us from the dream of unreality, and purify us through the Word of God. "And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities."

Repentance, regeneration, spiritual baptism, demonstration, and understanding are steps leading to redemption. Justice, true judgment, righteousness, faith, hope, and charity are the pillars of redemption.
