Only One Right

IN Christian Science a plurality of rights is impossible. There is only one right. Outside of Christian Science there are as many rights as the suppositional human mind may suppose or opine. But the right or truth does not have its being in the human or carnal mind but in the divine and only real Mind, even that Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus." It is therefore passing strange that one should hear students of Christian Science, when there occurs a difference of human opinions, remark, "Both sides think they are right."

In Article VIII, Section 7, of the Manual of The Mother Church, Mrs. Eddy has placed a rule for Christian Scientists which reads, "In accordance with the Christian Science textbooks,—the BIBLE, and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES,—and in accord with all of Mrs. Eddy's teachings, members of this Church shall neither entertain a belief nor signify a belief in more than one Christ, even that Christ whereof the Scripture beareth testimony."
