Emergence from Self

In Christian Science, if we are obedient and seek to progress, we put aside every term, every thought, everything that could circumscribe or limit our concept of God, the one creator. We have come to know that divine Mind alone, by reason of its illimitable scope, is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. This abandonment of deep-rooted impressions, beliefs, and former convictions is not accomplished easily or speedily by anyone, but comes by degrees, through constant resistance to the intrusion of error.

As the reward of consecrated effort, we have been weaned through Christian Science from belief in a personal God; and nothing has been more helpful to us in the accomplishment of this tremendous change in consciousness than acceptance of the supremacy of God, divine Mind, as taught by Mrs. Eddy in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Through this acceptance we have been enabled to demonstrate conclusively the truth and efficacy of divine Principle, and to accomplish many wonderful things for ourselves and for others. Our Leader writes, in the Preface to Science and Health (p. x): "The divine Principle of healing is proved in the personal experience of any sincere seeker of Truth. Its purpose is good, and its practice is safer and more potent than that of any other sanitary method." And she adds, "No intellectual proficiency is requisite in the learner, but sound morals are most desirable."
