True Liberty

Materially-Minded men may dubiously deny and dispute the declaration that there is available to mankind the Science of liberty, by means of which the fetters of fear, disease, poverty, sin, and discord may be both broken and banished. It is strange and sad that among these doubters and disputers are many who honestly desire and profess to be followers of Christ Jesus, the master Christian, who both declared and demonstrated true liberty. The application of his understanding of God's law of life and harmony to human conditions resulted in breaking the bonds of sickness and sin, want and woe, discord and death. And he pointed the path of freedom for all men in this simple declaration which is recorded in the eighth chapter of John's Gospel, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

The Greek term here translated as "word" has the meaning of "something said including the thought," which leads us to see that the Master meant that, if we would know the truth which makes men free, we must think as he thought, we must have the Mind which was in Christ Jesus. Although the Christian world has had this instruction before it for twenty centuries, it has apparently deemed present literal obedience to the command impossible; and this mental attitude has precluded realization of the promised freedom. But this situation is now changed, due to Mrs. Eddy's discovery of Christian Science and the presentation of her discovery in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." The study of this book, together with obedience to and application of its teachings, enables men to prove that this Science is the Science of Christianly right thinking, whereby the truth about God and man may be realized and demonstrated as Christ Jesus enjoined upon his followers.
