Beginning with Perfection

For numberless years mankind has been trying to extricate itself from the vicissitudes of mortal existence, from sin, disease, and death, and it seems to have failed. Is it any wonder, then, that an intelligent humanity is asking the reason for this apparent failure and is searching for the way out?

Christian Scientists are rejoicing that they have found the way out of mortal error. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, points out the way where she says in no uncertain terms, in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 259), "The Christlike understanding of scientific being and divine healing includes a perfect Principle and idea,—perfect God and perfect man,—as the basis of thought and demonstration." Is not the reason for the seeming failure that men start from the wrong basis, from imperfection instead of perfection?
