By their understanding of Christian Science and the use they make of it, students prove the ever-presence of spiritual dominion and harmony. Through their study of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, they are shown the way of proof and resolve to walk in it. Their life motive is to bring into evidence the power of divine Mind to awaken humanity from the dream of evil and to banish this dream forever. A life rich in proof of the healing power of Mind is a rift in the mist of personal sense which veils the perfect spiritual creation. The mist is evanescent; the proof is substantial. Substantial also are the health, wisdom, and spiritual regeneration brought to the individual through Christian Science.

Mrs. Eddy writes (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 27): "Creation, evolution, or manifestation,—being in and of Spirit, Mind, and all that really is,—must be spiritual and mental. This is Science, and is susceptible of proof." Holding without deviation to the fact that all that is real is "susceptible of proof," the Christian Scientist rises toward the fullness of demonstration. Thereby he learns how to cease being susceptible to error. Strong in his ministry among men, he stands on the flawless basis of Spirit showing forth the beauty of holiness. Divine Mind furnishes the proof of its own beauty and harmony to each one who renders himself receptive to good by the consistent rejection of the errors which attempt to disturb and distract his thought. Because the spiritually real is "susceptible of proof," everything good is susceptible of proof for and by every loyal student.

In the practice of this Science, harmony appears and inharmony disappears from human thought and experience. The burden of an ugly disposition, not being God-imposed, gives no proof of God. And that which gives no proof of God, good, is nothing. On the other hand, the divine nature is real and provable because of its relation to divine Principle. For the same reason, health is in every case provable, abundance is in every case provable, loving-kindness is in every case provable. Error is undemonstrable because it is a lie. Good is omnipresent and demonstrable.
