In the experience of those who are earnestly striving for a deeper understanding of Christian Science and a wider experience in its practice, there may sometimes be one problem that does not seem to yield to the healing truth. If only that demonstration were made, we think, then we should be free to glorify God in those greater works of which Jesus spoke. Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 574), "The very circumstance, which your suffering sense deems wrathful and afflictive, Love can make an angel entertained unawares."

It is helpful to consider the meaning of the word "demonstrate." According to Webster, "to demonstrate" is "to make evident; prove." Then, as Christian Scientists, what is it we have to prove? Is it not Truth? That is all that ever can be proved. It is impossible to prove what is not true.
