SALVATION, AN INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE

Students of Christian Science throughout the world recognize and acknowledge the unassailable and unique position of Mary Baker Eddy in the Christian Science movement as Discoverer, Founder, and Leader, and they recognize the fact that the full and final revelation of Truth has come through her; but they do not always recognize the necessity of putting Truth into practice. Each one of us must accept the Christ, Truth, for himself. Each must establish Truth in his consciousness as the foundation of existence, must allow Truth to lead him along the path, the ultimate goal of which is the full realization that God, Love, is All.

The truth of being, or Christian Science, may be presented to an individual through any one of a number of channels, and it may be received by that individual in a variety of ways. It may be looked upon as fantasy. This condition of human thought could well be what Jesus had in mind when, in telling the parable of the seed that fell on different types of soil, he said (Luke 8:12), "Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved." Is it not a belief in sin, sickness, and death, or the belief that matter is substance, that is the devil spoken of above and that suggests that the truths of Christian Science are not wanted?
