The Comfort of Christian Science

Christian Science , as set forth in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, has come to humanity as the answer to prayer. All through the centuries there have been rising to God from countless hungering hearts silent petitions for a better sense of life, a more enduring substance, purer and fairer human relationships, and for health untouched by sickness, feebleness, and death.

We are shown in this great teaching that the good we have sought and intuitively known to be available for us is ours now to claim and to manifest. We know we have a right to all these blessings, for the Bible tells us that we are the children of God, and that God is Love; so, as children of Love, we inherit all good, for infinite Love must necessarily confer the fullness of good upon its offspring. By this knowledge of God the mistaken beliefs which we formerly held, and to which the material senses bear witness, that man is fabricated from materiality and the lusts of the flesh, are disproved. This revelation, that "now are we the sons of God," enables us to lay hold on the undying, harmonious, immortal substance of which Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 468): "Substance is that which is eternal and incapable of discord and decay. Truth, Life, and Love are substance, as the Scriptures use this word in Hebrews: 'The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.'" This substance or Mind which is reflected in man, constitutes true being and cannot be touched by any sense of limitation, for there is no power or presence but God.

As these truths about a perfect God and His perfect man fill our thought through the consecrated daily study of the Bible and Science and Health, and the faithful effort to put them into practice in all the details of daily living, our thought gradually becomes more spiritual and our experience shows a greater degree of harmony.
