For the deeper understanding of...

For the deeper understanding of God which has come to me through the study of Christian Science, I am truly grateful. I had been most antagonistic, convinced that Christian Scientists either had no problems and were "up in the clouds," or ignored them, along with all evil, entirely. I had to learn that Christian Science teaches one how to overcome evil through God's law, which, spiritually understood, erases error, or false beliefs, thereby bringing forth the fruits of healing and revealing the holiness (wholeness) of man and his at-one-ment with God. This is one of the most precious unfoldments which can come to an individual. I am grateful for Mary Baker Eddy the revelator, Discoverer, and Founder of Christian Science, who gives us this great truth in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

I also thought that Christian Science was a form of will power or hypnotism. When I read the biograph, "The Life of Mary Baker Eddy" by Sibyl Wilbur, and learned of our Leader's experience in writing and including the chapter "Animal Magnetism Unmasked," and studied this chapter of our textbook, it became plain to me that Christian Science is opposed to any practice of mental manipulation. For the practitioner's alertness in early detecting my need for this corrective thinking, which freed me in large measure from the temptations of personal sense, I am grateful.
