Worship and Dedication

Mrs. Eddy writes (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 596): "Paul saw in Athens an altar dedicated 'to the unknown God.' Referring to it, he said to the Athenians: 'Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, Him declare I unto you.'" Through the practice of Christian Science the worship of Deity is enlightened and brings practical blessings. God, infinite Mind, needs no visible altar, no material sacrifices, but only the sacrifice of material ignorance, idolatry, and their dire results.

The Christian Scientist knows that his worship consists in giving up sin, false thinking, and in manifesting the qualities of spiritual man. The true altar stands for spiritual consecration. The individual himself knows the quality of his own unuttered thoughts and the extent to which he is or is not dedicating his thought and life to the purposes of God, good.
