Freedom

From the time our great Master uttered those wonderful words to his disciples, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," there has been before the world a promise unequaled in its appeal to all hearts. Throughout the ages the most cherished ideal of every nation has been freedom, an ideal differing in accordance with what the world in its varying degrees of civilization has considered freedom to be; and many and bitter have been the struggles to attain it, and many the sacrifices endured in bearing aloft its standard. Nevertheless, each unit of those many nations, conquered and conqueror alike, has been more or less enslaved by the cruel laws of material belief, the so-called laws of heredity and sickness, of sin and death, resulting in needless suffering.

How reassuring, then, in its simplicity is this statement of Christ Jesus, the Way-shower to all mankind, and how comprehensive is the promise contained therein and how certain of fulfillment! Yet, in spite of this, men have remained in bondage to the belief that matter has power, is sentient, and possesses life and substance, until through the spiritual vision of Mary Baker Eddy and her understanding of the Master's teachings, the way of attainment to perfect freedom was discovered and proved, and given by her in the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
