The First Commandment

Throughout the centuries, countless human hearts have yearned to know God and love Him with more understanding. Many true Christians have felt that by obeying the Commandments and loving Christ Jesus they would be brought nearer to God. But still the ideal of a closer communion with Him has been unattained.

Many who today are students of Christian Science had sought God through long and weary years of suffering, but the search seemed to be in vain until they became familiar with the spiritual interpretation of the Bible through the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Through the consecrated and prayerful study of the Bible in the light of this textbook. their consciousness has been so uplifted and purified that they are enabled to free themselves and others from the many ills and misfortunes which seem so real to mankind. They have found that the true God, who is divine Principle, Life, Truth, and Love, and man in His image and likeness are so clearly revealed in Christian Science that they no longer believe the deceitful testimony of the material senses, and are healed.
