The progress of the Christian Science movement presents one of the profoundest problems of the age. Christian Science keeps close to the teachings of Christ Jesus, yet to human sense it seems unsolvable, and not until it is approached from a spiritual basis can it be understood.

In John's gospel we are told that "the Jews marveled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?" In early boyhood Jesus went into the temple and taught the wise men, both asking and answering questions; but they, being blinded by scholastic theology, did not discover the source of his power, which was divine, or God's reflection. He knew no other power than God, and consequently demonstrated that only which expresses God; and the Father gave him all power, so that he caused the blind to see and the lame to walk; he cleansed the lepers, turned water into wine, raised the dead, went through the multitude unseen, and stilled the tempest. The Scriptures state that he "was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin," and we can understand how it was that temptations were nothing to him, for, as Mrs. Eddy points out, "he plunged beneath the material surface of things, and found the spiritual cause" (Science and Health, p. 313). He served only the one true God; and so must we, if we would find the same deliverance from the one evil.
