Correct Reasoning

Christian Science teaches that the most active human faculty is reason. How important it is, then, that our reasoning should be based upon Truth, and be rightly directed! The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, makes the following statement in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 494): "Reason, rightly directed, serves to correct the errors of corporeal sense." According to the testimony of false material sense, errors of various kinds and varying degrees of severity throng the pathway of mortals throughout the tenure of human existence; and many, indeed, have been the ways and means proposed, or employed, by mankind in the effort to mitigate or overcome these errors.

Today the campaign against evil, as manifested in sorrow, fear, poverty, injustice, sin, disease, and death, is being actively waged in many parts of the world, but the results are not so satisfactory as men have hoped for. In some cases the ensuing failure and disappointment show clearly the necessity of abandoning inadequate methods. Evil can never be completely removed from human experience through material warfare, legislation, or personal dictation. Only by utilizing the spiritual method of Christ Jesus, which is reinstated by Christian Science, can men successfully meet and master the evils and discords so apparent today.
