Spiritual Understanding versus Material Knowledge

The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, states in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 195): "Academics of the right sort are requisite. Observation, invention, study, and original thought are expansive and should promote the growth of mortal mind out of itself, out of all that is mortal."

Although the world generally agrees with the first part of this statement, it does not as yet see that "observation, invention, study, and original thought ... should promote the growth of mortal mind out of itself, out of all that is mortal." Christian Science is rapidly teaching those who turn to this Science how to imbibe the true, eternal, and immortal, which annul the false, temporary, and mortal. It brings the light of spiritual understanding, which lifts one's vision above the material realm to spiritual reality and fills one's consciousness with comfort and peace.
