Now

A startling message was given to the world when Jesus began preaching the gospel, saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand." This may seem even more startling when we look at conditions that prevailed in the land where the gospel was preached. Discord, strife, oppression, want, woe, disease, and death seemed to abound. Yet Christ Jesus not only preached this gospel himself, but sent out disciples and told them to do likewise, and to prove true the message by healing the sick, cleansing the lepers, raising the dead, and casting out devils.

In our day Christian Science is preaching the same good tidings, and its adherents are learning to prove its teaching in the way Jesus commanded. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has written in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 470, 471), "The relations of God and man, divine Principle and idea, are indestructible in Science; and Science knows no lapse from nor return to harmony, but holds the divine order or spiritual law, in which God and all that He creates are perfect and eternal, to have remained unchanged in its eternal history."
