It is only when we begin to make some progress in our understanding of Christian Science that we are able to see the immense importance of our Master's words, "Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."

Many of us, when we first start to study Christian Science, strive to comprehend spiritual truth from the standpoint of our human intellect and material intelligence. How foolish this is we do not see at first, and we wonder why it is we cannot gain the quick understanding, followed by demonstration, which has come to one who we know is what the world calls unedcated and unlearned. It is not until we see how useless human cleverness is, and how we are unable to solve the simplest problem in Christian Science through its aid, that we are willing to lay aside our false belief of education and start to learn the alphabet of true education. We find we have to unlearn so much that before we prided ourselves upon knowing, it is well nigh a complete reversal of all our most cherished opinions and beliefs. One after another false idols are destroyed and the true ideas are substituted for them.
