The follower of Christian Science is not out to satisfy his own desires. He places his life unreservedly under the law of God; he studies and strives in all his living to do the will of God and to do justice to the commands Jesus laid down in the Sermon on the Mount. For him the acknowledgment of sin as sin is the first step in the direction of gaining his freedom from it. In this connection we read in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 19): "Every pang of repentance and suffering, every effort for reform, every good thought and deed, will help us to understand Jesus' atonement for sin and aid its efficacy; but if the sinner continues to pray and repent, sin and be sorry, he has little part in the atonement,—in the at-one-ment with God,—for he lacks the practical repentance, which reforms the heart and enables man to do the will of wisdom."
