Knowing God Aright

"Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!"—Job's prayer—is still echoing down the ages, reaching the ear of mortals as they struggle to extricate themselves from their difficulties. And it carries with it the desire for achievement. When eventually a severe testing time comes, the search for God begins in earnest, and a great effort is made to find and know God, and thereby discover a way out. Christian Science is revealing God to the world, not as a far-off Being, but as the living, loving, ever present God, who is ever available to help and heal.

On page 22 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, is found the statement: "Waking to Christ's demand, mortals experience suffering. This causes them, even as drowning men, to make vigorous efforts to save themselves; and through Christ's precious love these efforts are crowned with success." Christian Science teaches not only that it is possible to know God, but that only by such knowing, and the consequent courage and confidence such understanding inspires, is it possible to work out our salvation in the way Jesus taught, and so find freedom.
