The Call of the Christ

Christian Scientists are well aware that they need to be awake these days; that they need to live their religion with all faithfulness and consecration. Ever since they were first led to the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, they have endeavored to proclaim the supremacy of God, the one Mind, and to realize that He is expressed universally and eternally, to the exclusion of evil. They have averred that man is God's image, the reflection of His goodness and perfection; that God governs the universe and man by His immutable laws, and that the order and rhythm of creation are forever harmonious and complete.

The student also knows that material sense claims to set forth the opposite of these primal and indestructible facts. But as Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, tells us in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 14), "What appears to mortals from their standpoint to be the necessity for evil, is proven by the law of opposites to be without necessity;" and she continues: "Good is the primitive Principle of man; and evil, good's opposite, has no Principle, and is not, and cannot be, the derivative of good. Thus evil is neither a primitive nor a derivative, but is suppositional; in other words, a lie that is incapable of proof—therefore, wholly problematical."
