"Thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children"

The teacher in a Christian Science Sunday School learns through a study of the Church Manual that Christian Science teaching is based on the moral law, as set forth in the Ten Commandments, and on the fuller revelation of law which Christ Jesus revealed in the Beatitudes and the Lord's Prayer (see pages 62, 63). We find that while these constitute the "first lessons," yet all through the Sunday school, from the elementary to the advanced classes, these revelations of scientific Christianity are the basis of instruction. The more we ourselves progress, the more we realize that to understand and obey these commandments of God is the foundation of all spiritual progress.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 62) Mrs. Eddy says, "The entire education of children should be such as to form habits of obedience to the moral and spiritual law, with which the child can meet and master the belief in so-called physical laws, a belief which breeds disease." Jesus stated this "moral and spiritual law" for all time when he said: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. ... Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." All sin and suffering arise from disobedience, in some form, to these great commandments of God.
