Meeting the Demand

[Original article in German]

An inescapable demand of human existence is its preservation. According to the material senses, this preservation consists in provision for food, clothing, on clothing, and shelter, which are dependent on wages or income, on climate and soil conditions, and other material circumstances. Consequently, the aspirations of individuals and peoples largely center in gaining control of material things and conditions. The paradoxes of overproduction and lack, overwork and unemployment, prove the inadequacy of material ways and means to meet satisfactorily the demand for the preservation of existence by material methods.

Christian Science is the Science of Life. It is absolute, embracing all the laws governing real existence; and all legitimate demands are satisfied if the rules of this Science are followed. On page 275 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes, "To grasp the reality and order of being in its Science, you must begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle of all that really is."
