Our proportionate admission of the claims of good or of evil determines the harmony of our existence,—our health, our longevity, and our Christianity." So writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 167 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." In this brief sentence is indicated the healing method of Christian Science, the complete rejection of the belief of an evil cause and the acceptance of the truth that God is the only cause and that His creation is perfect. Thus Christian Scientists accept the fundamental fact as stated in Genesis (1:27, 31): "God created man in his own image. ... And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."

The student of Christian Science learns that man in Science is perfect, expressing the qualities of his creator, God, in health, harmony, love, joyous activity, graciousness, and co-operation. In proportion as one affirms and realizes this basic fact will he be able to correct inharmonious conditions wherever they appear, whether in the home, the office, the shop, the schoolroom, in church work, his business, or in any other activity. The student learns that God, omnipresent Love, supplies him with all things needful for his well-being and happiness; that omnipotent Truth gives strength to do His work, and that omniscient Mind gives the wisdom and understanding necessary to carry on daily activities.
