No longer does anyone need to think of Christianity as experimental, or to accept vague hypotheses as a working basis for theoretical formulae. Human reasoning from a material basis has been superseded by the revelation of divine Science, the Science of God, man, and the universe, through which is discerned the actuality of ever-present spiritual harmony. This revelation has reopened for humanity the path to the door that no man can shut, even the door of which Christ Jesus said: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. . . . I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture."

In succeeding centuries human beliefs have closed the pathway marked out by Christ Jesus. (See Science and Health, p. 171:7.) However, the immortality of his work, as prophesied by him, was proved when, after finding his pathway and clearing away obstructions, our Leader declared of this same door (Christian Science versus Pantheism, p. 12), "The altitude of Christianity openeth, high above the so-called laws of matter, a door that no man can shut; it showeth to all peoples the way of escape from sin, disease, and death; it lifteth the burden of sharp experience from off the heart of humanity, and so lighteth the path that he who entereth it may run and not weary, and walk, not wait by the roadside,—yea, pass gently on without the alternative agonies whereby the way-seeker gains and points the path."
