While differing from scholastic dogma and modes of human reasoning, Christian Science sets forth the spiritual facts of existence whereby mortals may understandingly accept Paul's admonition, "Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith."

Mrs. Eddy says on page 364 of "Miscellaneous Writings," "Christian Science refutes everything that is not a postulate of the divine Principle, God. It is the soul of divine philosophy, and there is no other philosophy. It is not a search after wisdom, it is wisdom: it is God's right hand grasping the universe,—all time, space, immortality, thought, extension, cause, and effect; constituting and governing all identity, individuality, law, and power. It stands on this Scriptural platform: that He made all that was made, and it is good, reflects the divine Mind, is governed by it; and that nothing apart from this Mind, one God, is self-created or evolves the universe."

Christian Science is not lacking in proof of its utility. For half a century it has stood the test of demonstration as well as that of criticism and persecution. The goodness of Christian Science is expressed in the betterment of humanity, physically, morally, spiritually.
