The True Metaphysical Student

To grasp the real import of Christian Science, to gain some sense of its infinite scope, to realize its infallibility and render unquestioning obedience thereto, one must perceive it to be a revelation from God, hence unalterable eternal truth. To believe in the inspiration of the Bible and of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, is a step in the right direction, but to discern intelligently these writings as revelations from divine Mind to the human mind calls for scientific understanding.

This understanding marks the true metaphysical student. To his apprehension all fundamentals of divine logic—such as the fact, substance, self-existence, supreme government and perfection of infinite Mind, and of man as Mind's idea—become self-evident. Self-evident truth alone is the rock of scientific reasoning against which "the gates of hell shall not prevail." With this basic insight and the sincere desire and purpose to find his real identity in being, no student can lose his way, no matter if he at times may seem to fail or fall. Whatever is not yet understood is given pause, with the assurance that obedience to what is already comprehended will unfold the further interpretation.
