Erroneous charges of inconsistency in the Bible narratives and sayings of our Lord, are fast melting away through Christian Science. As the errors of sense in mortal thought are uncovered and destroyed, and self-righteousness gives place to humility, the sublimity and completeness of the Word of God becomes understood. This is due in a very large measure to the study of the Bible with Science and Health, as set forth in the Lesson-Sermons of the Christian Science Quarterly. There is an understanding gained from this study which we are able to make our own, and yet we get this spiritual insight only as we apply the Christ-Science to our needs.

To the student, the link between Principle and these two books is a revelation, but it takes time to define and express it. The student, then, should not be discouraged because he finds many things "hard to be understood." This simply means that he has farther to go in his own demonstration. In Science and Health there is an answer to every question, and if he will only search he will find it out. The action of truth is "quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword," but there are very few who at first understand that it is a help to see and experience more of the difference between Truth and error. True, the two never really meet because of their oppositeness, and yet when error is destroyed, that is, when wrong thinking and wrong actions are changed, we know that Christ, Truth, has made the correction.
