The Student and the Cause

Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 450), "The Christian Scientist has enlisted to lessen evil, disease, and death." This enlistment, then, might be said to have become an actuality at the time we unite with The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, or a branch church, or both. For by this uniting with the Christian Science church, or both. For by this uniting with the Christian Science church, do we not declare ourselves to be in full accord with the teachings of Mrs. Eddy, its Founder, and with the purpose, motives, and aims of the Christian Science movement?

Let us consider for a moment what this means. The purpose of this church which our Leader under God's direction and guidance established, is to bring healing to humanity, the healing of all discordant material conditions through the bringing of God's kingdom, the reign of harmony, to earth. It is this church that has brought to us the healing, life-giving truth; and surely our gratitude to God and to our Leader, as well as our conviction that we have found the living way, prompts us to come out and take our stand beside our fellow Scientists, and declare to the world that we have found the Christ, Truth.
