One of the oldest questions in Christian history is, "What shall I do to be saved?" and the answer is, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved."

Christendom has been trying for two thousand years to determine what constituted an acceptable belief in Christ, or in other words the Christ-way, and in so doing has externalized itself into something like one hundred and sixty five different sects with a widely divergent sense of creed and practice. This in and of itself constitutes prima facie evidence that none have been following the Christ-way. It is not possible for the Christian to believe them all nor to reconcile their different interpretations of Christ, as they are in many respects, both as to statement and practice, irreconcilable. Quite apart from what critics may say in the matter, and apart from all discussion and debate thereon, there must exist and always has existed the truth about God, man, and Christ. In other words, there must be and always has been a Christ-Science or Christian Science. The very existence of being proclaims a truth about it, and the very existence of the Christ proclaims an exact truth about it, and this is of necessity a scientific way and a Christian way. Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
