I am a Christian Scientist because Christian Science enables me to solve human problems in a scientific. Christlike way. It has revealed to me the availability of God's power on earth to heal the sick and the sinning. And it has given me a correct understanding of the nature of God and of man, created by Him in His own image and likeness. Briefly, it is a wonderful revelation of the true facts of being. Finally, it teaches one how to put on the "new man"; that is, how to entertain only good thoughts which purify consciousness. The last tenet of Christian Science, on page 497 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, reads, "And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure."

Having regard to the spiritual nature and quality of God's creation. Mrs. Eddy says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 307): "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies." We see, then, that every honest undertaking which is inspired by wisdom, receives its inspiration and fruitage from God, who is the source and Giver of all good. This understanding made all the difference to my outlook on life and work. God prospers every right effort to serve. Therefore there is common ground for appreciating the good that is being accomplished through organized denominations and institutions, and Christian Scientists are grateful for the opportunity of sharing with others the good which Christian Science reveals.
