[Written Especially for Young People]
Everyone desires companionship, but this desire, although a legitimate one, often seems to go unsatisfied. It may appear that good companions are hard to find; or one may seem to be constantly haunted by the fear of losing the companionship he now enjoys; or if separated from a loved companion, one may believe that he suffers a sense of loss and heartache. Only through Christian Science is unfailing companionship demonstrated, and desire for it permanently satisfied.
The application of Christian Science to the problem of companionship may be likened, in one respect, to the applying of tests to certain foods: these tests are applied in order to establish the purity of the articles tested; they are a safeguard against adulterations. Much more do one's beliefs about companionship need to be tested that only what is pure may be maintained. A dictionary definition of the verb "adulterate" is to "falsify by mixing with baser ingredients."
The good that comes to us from God is unadulterated. The belief that good is mixed with evil—that our happiness cannot be pure, but must be accompanied by at least a little unhappiness—is condemned many times in the Bible; yet without the true understanding of the Scriptures given by Christian Science one is liable to be deceived by this erroneous belief of adulteration. Students of Christian Science are grateful that their study is providing them with scientific knowledge by which they are enabled to obey Paul's injunction, "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."
