Corrective Examination

[Written Especially for Young People]

Often we find ourselves at a point in our experience where we see there is a need for correction. When the error in question is disclosed to us, we cannot continue doing things in the same old way. How good it is to learn in Christian Science how to rectify the mistake so that our daily journey may be smooth, safe, and harmonious!

The one seeking scientific correction will find many avenues of aid and assistance as he turns to divine Principle wholeheartedly when it is evident that a mistake has been made. The assistance we need may come directly to us through spiritual inspiration. Or it may come through family, friends, Sunday school teacher, or practitioner, who with love, compassion, tenderness, and understanding will set us on the straight path. The way of scientific correction is not through enlarging upon the error, but through helping one to see and to prove its nothingness. Thus, the one needing correction will learn that man, as the reflection of Principle, never makes a mistake. The human belief in a mistake has to be uncovered, and replaced with the realization of God's allness and perfection. Mrs. Eddy states in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 206): "Omnipotent and infinite Mind made all and includes all. This Mind does not make mistakes and subsequently correct them." Working from the standpoint of one Mind, divine Principle, one sees that all true correction is spiritually mental.
