"Work out your own Salvation"

IT has often been said, and truly, that every statement of Truth made, either through our publications or at the testimonial meetings, is sure to appeal to some one in some way.

A speaker in one of the meetings at the Mother Church made the statement that a student of music does not study musicians but the principle of music, a student of art does not study artists but the principle of art, and a student of Christian Science does not study Christian Scientists but the Principle of Christianity.

Thus it is that only as we cease to rely upon human theories and doctrines, cease to look for aid from any other source than the true source of all Being—God— cease to measure and compare human capabilities, and with earnest hearts seek to gain an understanding of that Principle which enables us to "act as possessing all power from Him in whom we have our Being" (Science and Health, P. 160), are we able to prove for ourselves that a right understanding of God, the divine Principle, restores harmony where our ignorance of Him has produced seeming discord.
