TRUTH AND FINALS
[Of Special Interest to Young People]
Some college freshmen in a Christian Science Sunday School class were facing their first period of academic finals. Their tenseness showed plainly that an apparent case of "college jitters" needed to be healed. The subject of the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly that day was "Truth," and the teacher recognized her opportunity of using the Lesson to correct the girls' thinking.
Opening "Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy to page 506, one of the pupils read, "Understanding is a quality of God, a quality which separates Christian Science from supposition and makes Truth final."
Through questions and answers it was brought out that Truth is God and man is the image and likeness of God. Then it was seen that man must necessarily possess by reflection the qualities of God, including understanding; so each one, as God's likeness, must possess understanding. This simple logic eliminated the fear of failure, for where there is understanding, there can be no failure, It was brought out also that the Bible and Christian Science teach that God is All. Then God must include man and all that concerns him, for there cannot be All and something else.
