The First Step

When Christian Science enters one's life, one soon finds his viewpoint on many subjects changing; and an entirely new standard has to be reckoned with. Instead of the limited prospect of a few years to live, and of uncertainty concerning what then awaits him, one finds hope springing up and broadening his view, giving joy and bright promise. As one advances in understanding, burdens of fear begin to lessen, and a truer sense of life unfolds with every step. With new understanding one realizes the meaning of Jesus' words, "With God all things are possible."

Christian Science gives a new synonym for God, namely, divine Mind. This does away with the old concept of a manlike God; and the student begins to realize that it is this divine Mind, this divine intelligence, this infinite Life and Love that created everything "very good," and made man in God's own image and likeness, as recorded in the first chapter of Genesis. The sincere seeker for Truth begins to discover the real man as a spiritual, divine idea, reflecting God, and commences to build on a true spiritual basis, with right reasoning.
