"God's method"

To be securely anchored to the rock that is Christian Science, unmoved by the waves of semimetaphysics vainly attempting to simulate or to deny pure Christian Science, it is highly important for the student to know exactly what he means whenever he uses the term "metaphysics." It is significant that the dictionary gives two distinct meanings: (1) Ontology, or the science of being; (2) Epistemology, or the theory of knowledge. Is it not clear that much that one hears loosely spoken of as "metaphysics" has in reality this secondary meaning, which, the dictionary further states, has special reference to "the limits and validity of" metaphysics?
