The True Source of Knowledge

[Written Especially for Young People]

Wrong thinking often causes students in our schools and colleges to fear examinations. The students are told that credit for a whole quarter's or perhaps a whole year's work depends upon one examination. No matter how much work has been done previously, the examination is the final test. Some examinations are comprehensive, but more often just a few points are selected for consideration. Thus it is imperative that every point be thoroughly mastered. Some students, particularly freshmen, are apt to become so panic-stricken as the period for the examination approaches that they become confused and incapable of expressing their thoughts. The task of mastering a subject seems to them almost insurmountable.

However, to the student who is a Christian Scientist, an examination is but another opportunity for expressing the unerring intelligence of divine Mind and Love. Mind, the source of all true thoughts and ideas, is defined by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 591), in part, as "the one God; not that which is in man, but the divine Principle, or God, of whom man is the full and perfect expression." On the same page Mrs. Eddy explains mortal mind, in part, as "nothing claiming to be something, for Mind is immortal."
