Knowing Ourselves

Until Mary Baker Eddy discovered Christian Science, no one except Jesus had known that there existed the Science of being which could be worked out as accurately as the science of numbers. In obedience to its laws, which are wholly laws of good, students of Christian Science are striving to put aside their erroneous concepts of themselves as frail mortals who can be sick, have accidents, be poor, and die. They are learning to "change the human concept of Life," as Mrs. Eddy expresses it (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 359), and to know themselves "spiritually and scientifically."

How is this to be done? The student of Christian Science who is trying to practice the divine truth of God has often been likened to the student of mathematics. The student of mathematics has to follow a rule, or rules, implicitly before he can solve his problem. He knows that if he does this correctly the result is assured.
