"WHO WANTS TO BE MORTAL?"

Sometimes a student of Christian Science asks himself in all seriousness, "Why do I not progress faster than I do in Christian Science?" Or he may question: "Why have I not been healed in Christian Science? Why does the discordant condition continue in spite of my earnest study, together with prayerful efforts of consecrated Christian Science practitioners?"

Every claim of discord, whether physical or mental, is due to a misunderstanding of man's true being and of his relationship to God. Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, and who is the author of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," asks (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 104), "Who wants to be mortal, or would not gain the true ideal of Life and recover his own individuality?" Then she adds (pp. 104, 105): "I will love, if another hates. I will gain a balance on the side of good, my true being. This alone gives me the forces of God wherewith to overcome all error. On this rests the implicit faith engendered by Christian Science, which appeals intelligently to the facts of man's spirituality, individuality, to disdain the fears and destroy the discords of this material personality."
