The Proof That Is Essential

[Written Especially for Young People]

There are no mysteries or abstractions in Christian Science as revealed and presented to the world by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. There is, of course, a deep metaphysical basis for all her words and works. But the precedent for her metaphysics was found by her in the words and works of the master Metaphysician, Christ Jesus. In these there is no mystery and in the Scriptures there is no abstraction when studied in the light shed upon them by the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, who discovered and clearly stated the Principle and method of Jesus's healing work. She set forth her discovery in language plain to those who have "ears to hear."

As in Jesus' time, so today, Christians who have sought to learn more of the nature of God and of man's relationship to Him have had to guard themselves against pitfalls. Dogma and creed on the one hand, and enticing speculations and philosophies on the other, have often clouded the clear meaning of our Leader's words, as they did the Master's. Every great forward step in spiritual progress has been resisted and threatened by the subtle persuasions of comfortable "systems," by error masquerading as good, by false prophets who, as Jesus warned, "come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
