The Divine Purpose

IT is fairly safe to assume that there is hardly a single poet, sage, religionist, philosopher, or in fact any seriously thinking person, who has not spent much time in trying to find a satisfying answer to what has been called "the riddle of the universe," or the divine purpose of existence.

Before the discovery of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy, in 1866, it was thought by many that the statement put forth by Christ Jesus, "For this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth," had reference to his witnessing only and not to that of his followers as well, and this despite the many earlier Scriptural writings to the contrary, as for instance the words of Isaiah, "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen."
