Correcting False Concepts

Children attending the Christian Science Sunday School from their earliest years have the unique privilege of gaining the correct understanding of God and of man, and of learning the spiritual meaning of the Scriptures. But often the adult beginner in the study of Christian Science may find that numerous misinterpretations of the Bible must be corrected, and that many of his preconceived beliefs and notions concerning the nature of God must be discarded and eradicated from thought.

Many familiar texts, thundered from old-time pulpits, have struck fear and consternation into sensitive childish hearts, leaving deep impressions of a God of wrath and vengeance watching from a great white throne to punish every youthful misdeed. And oftentimes these impressions have remained firmly embedded in thought throughout the years. However, when the light of Christian Science is thrown upon the Bible, through the inspired words of our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and her other writings, it is with relief and joy that we begin to discern the true nature of God as Love, Truth, Life, Principle, unchanging and unchangeable, and not as a sort of potentate administering both good and evil.
