Proving the Allness of God, Good

Christian Scientists recognize that true worship is allied with true effectiveness in the overcoming of sin, disease, and death, and that the basis of both is recognition of the allness of God, good, and the consequent nothingness of evil. Very early in its study, as a rule, one accepts these fundamental propositions of Christian Science, not only because one sees they are in manifest accord with the Scriptures, and because they satisfy him spiritually, but because he finds them demonstrable. But so radically different is this teaching from what he has learned in the ordinary human way that even after he has accepted it with deep conviction he finds he must go on with persistent endeavor to bring his thought and life into accord with it—that is, to prove in his own experience the allness of good. This is the further work of Christian Science, which is assuredly not without its joyful inspiration.

The Apostle Paul writes, "I delight in the law of God after the inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind." But the apostle also points to the remedy when he writes, "The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." Christ, the true idea of God, brings the evidence of spiritual freedom.

Christian Scientists find that they must and can school themselves progressively to think and act in a manner truly illustrative of the allness of good, and that as they do this their healing ability is enhanced, and limitations fall away.
