God's Law Universal

The paths by which the seeker after Truth and the sick, the sinning, the sorrowful, enter Christian Science are as varied and numerous as are the individuals who thus seek spiritual satisfaction or surcease from pain. While in every instance the goal is the same, the human reasons for striving for that goal may be different. There comes a time when in one way or another interest in Christian Science is awakened. One is in need of that which material methods cannot supply,—health, substance, righteousness, a sense of peace and harmony,—in short, a clearer understanding of the laws which govern true being, though one may not, at the time, so analyze his longing.

In "Rudimental Divine Science" (p. 1) our Leader defines Christian Science as "the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony." The student does not progress far in the study of Christian Science before proving, in a degree, the accuracy of this statement; and it must become apparent to him that since God's law is the law of harmony which Christian Science demonstrates, then it must be universal law; and, being universal, it governs all that truly exists. All that God creates is obedient to His law. Since God's law is "the law of good," obedience to His law is manifested in health, harmony, and life eternal.
