"Obey this call"!

"Men and women of the nineteenth century, are you called to voice a higher order of Science? Then obey this call. Go, if you must, to the dungeon or the scaffold, but take not back the words of Truth." With these challenging and inspiring words (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 99), Mary Baker Eddy has shown her followers that each one is "called to voice a higher order of Science," which will fulfill its world-mission proportionally as Christian Scientists obey the call.

The truth about God and His perfect creation, as recorded in the first chapter of Genesis, is unmistakably given by Mrs. Eddy in her elucidation of Christian Science; and our part is to grasp, through obedient study and application, the truth which makes free. Our Leader knew that to be a genuine Christian Scientist is possible for all, through persistent and devoted effort. She follows her words quoted above with the stirring question, "How many are there ready to suffer for a righteous cause, to stand a long siege, take the front rank, face the foe, and be in the battle every day?"
