The Open Door

Humanity is looking in many directions today, seeking a way of escape from its difficulties, social, political, and religious. Individuals and nations are experimenting with new and untried methods, hoping to find a door which will lead to a permanent solution of all the troubles which seem to beset mankind. Meanwhile the question is being asked by many, Has Christianity failed mankind? An affirmative answer might seem natural in the face of the overwhelming testimony of the material senses. For example, the unprecedented cruelty and callousness exhibited in various quarters of the world today, falsely carried on in the name of freedom, are certainly a long way from the teachings of him who overcame the world, and said: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Thanks to Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, the truth of real being has been revealed in this age. The falsity of mortal sense has been exposed through her spiritual teachings, and it is clearly seen that it is not Christianity which has failed men. On the contrary, men have failed to grasp the spiritual import of that which our Master and Way-shower, Christ Jesus, came to teach and to prove for humanity's sake. This failure to reason correctly from that spiritual basis, and to recognize the fact that Jesus of Nazareth was the greatest Scientist the world has ever seen, has prevented untold millions down through the ages from experiencing the beauty of health, peace, prosperity, and joy, which naturally belong to all who discern and obey the divine Principle of Jesus' teachings.
