The Truth that Frees

ON page 463 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, we read, "A spiritual idea has not a single element of error, and this truth removes properly whatever is offensive." This statement corresponds with Jesus' words, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

What is the truth which frees? Through the study of Christian Science we learn that it is the truth about God and His universe, including man in His image and likeness, the record of whose creation is given in the first chapter and the first five verses of the second chapter of Genesis. On perusing this account, we find that "not a single element of error" is to be found therein. And why? Because it portrays the creation of the perfect spiritual creator, God, who is defined in Science and Health (p. 587) as "the great I AM; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence;" who, as we read in the first chapter of Genesis, "saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."
