"The wheels of reason"

"This movement of thought must push on the ages: it must start the wheels of reason aright, educate the affections to higher resources, and leave Christianity unbiased by the superstitions of a senior period," writes Mrs. Eddy in an article entitled "Christian Science," on page 235 of her book, "Miscellaneous Writings."

The student of Christian Science who, in face of seemingly insurmountable difficulties, courageously holds to the truth of being, is reaching far beyond the fading material sense of things, which largely comprises human experience, and is not easily influenced by superstitions and false beliefs regarding the necessity of sin, disease, and death. His spiritual understanding that God, good, is the only Mind and man the image of God, Mind—immortal, eternal, invulnerable—affiliates him with "this movement of thought," which is leading the ages out of the darkness of material reasoning into the marvelous light of spiritual understanding, revealing man's boundless possibilities as the reflection of God, limitless Love!
