The Christian Scientist Today

Most of us have at some time been stirred from a rut of spiritual indifference and have been raised to fuller metaphysical effort by the impressive example of a real Christian Scientist. Christ Jesus is of course, our foremost figure of encouragement and inspiration. And through adherence to his teachings many present-day Christian Scientists provide heartening and uplifting examples which inspire those about them.

"A real Christian Scientist is a marvel, a miracle in the universe of mortal mind. With selfless love, he inscribes on the heart of humanity and transcribes on the page of reality the living, palpable presence—the might and majesty!— of goodness. He lives for all mankind and honors his creator." So Mary Baker Eddy pays tribute to the "real Christian Scientist" in "Miscellaneous Writings" ( p. 204). And surely, she who was qualified to discover this Science of Christ and elucidate it to mankind, is the superb exemplification of a genuine Christian Scientist in this age. We all strive to merit the name "Christian Scientist." and, according to the extent of our willingness to work and to live aright, we are successful.
