The Important Question

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy states (p. 462): "Anatomy, when conceived of spiritually, is mental self-knowledge, and consists in the dissection of thoughts to discover their quality, quantity, and origin. Are thoughts divine or human? That is the important question." This question is so important, indeed, that upon its correct answer depends the progress of the world out of its difficulties and dangers into the realization of God's promises of good for His children. To rouse mankind to the importance of this question is a clarion call of Christian Science.

The world is daily presented with an increasing perplexity of questions which, when answered from a material basis of thought, leave it in great quandary. The evidence of this fact is observed in mankind's increasing interest in psychology and the allied medical study of psychiatry. Mortal man, governed largely by material thinking, believes that he must accept as genuine the testimony offered by the five physical senses. But Christian Science leads its followers into the clear atmosphere of logical and practical conclusions reached through its absolute and unique teaching that spiritual facts alone are real.
