Christianly Scientific Practice

In carefully considering Christian Science treatment and comparing it with the manner in which Jesus overcame all forms of evil and disease, we find that our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has discovered and revealed, for the practical use of every earnest seeker, the same Christly methods as were used by the Master. Is it not, then, of great importance that every sincere follower of Christ Jesus in the present time should gain a clearer understanding of how to do more of the works which he promised would follow them that believe, understand his teachings?

Throughout all his ministry Jesus showed plainly that it is necessary for each student to gain an understanding of the fundamental truths that are available to us for instant and practical application to each and every problem. We see that he had a clear knowledge of the truths revealed by the inspired words of the prophets before him; and in the fourth chapter of Matthew is shown the process of right thinking which he used in his overcoming of the temptations which came to him early in his earthly career, acquainting us with the way he refuted and destroyed each erroneous suggestion. When he was tempted to satisfy material hunger by turning stones into bread, the spiritual fact declared by Moses, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God," was at hand to dismiss the evil suggestion. When tempted to make a display before men of the protecting power of God, by casting himself down from the pinnacle of the temple, he employed the Scriptural command, "Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." In like manner did he destroy the temptation to bow down to materiality and worldly gain, with the further Scriptural command, "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve."
