The Time Is Come

Two statements of our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, on the opening page of the Preface to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," are: "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings," and, "The time for thinkers has come." These statements afford simple enlightenment to those seeking Truth. The sick, the sinner, the discouraged, and the pessimist, find material ways and means of no avail in this war of Armageddon. The desire to know something demonstrable of God, awakens thought. Then like little children they are turned to divine Love and begin to learn what Life is as revealed through Christian Science. When one begins to think, one begins to analyze; and to analyze is to test,—for all that is learned about God in Christian Science can always be proved to one's perfect satisfaction, and brings joy and peace and never ending gratitude.

The two statements referred to are helpful in understanding the definition of Church which Mrs. Eddy gives us on page 583 of Science and Health. As we lean on "the sustaining infinite," we understand "the structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle." Of course this structure can mean none else than divine consciousness manifest, which the only man there is must ever reflect. This right reasoning begins to destroy wrong thoughts. No headway can be made in trying to put new wine into old bottles. For good and evil to go hand in hand in this process of purification is an impossibility. "To begin rightly is to end rightly," our Leader tells us on page 262 of Science and Health. Always by keeping before us the unchanging and ever present truth that God is good only, and man His perfect reflection, we experience the blessings which come to us through comprehending the true meaning of "leaning on the sustaining infinite" and "the structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle." Truly this is Life eternal.
