Theology has for so long been concerned in devising creeds to bring the teaching of the Bible within the range of human understanding, in explanations and interpretations intended to satisfy the human mind and to transgress as little as possible its materialistic limitations and methods, that the reversal of this process demanded by Christian Science is often at first a little startling and disconcerting. Truth is and must ever be unerring, immutable, spiritual; it is the huma mind that is in need of change if we are to comprehend it. This is the literal meaning of repentance.
How clearly Paul saw this as the great necessity is shown by his constant insistence on it in his letters: "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind;" "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus;" "If any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know;" "The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned," etc. So that the human, material mind can get in answer to its query, "What is truth?" no more enlightenment today than it did when it spoke through the lips of Pilate. The fact is that it is as impossible for that mind to comprehend Truth as it would be for one who had been in darkness all his life to comprehend the nature of light without seeing it. Consequently the only real argument for Christian Science is the demonstration of it. The great fact of Truth and the strict logical deductions from it must be accepted; that is the province of faith. Christian Science comes to transform this faith into knowledge.
