OUR FIRST TENET

The paramount importance of a knowledge of the Scriptures in their application to the welfare and salvation of mankind was never more truly expressed than when Mary Baker Eddy wrote the first tenet of Christian Science. It reads (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 497), "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life."

Mrs. Eddy was able to make this positive assertion because she had discovered through her study of the Bible the underlying healing truth which is implicit in the Scriptures and which, when understood, is as demonstrable today as it was in apostolic times. Furthermore, through the practical application of the rules for living laid down in the Bible she was able to elucidate her discovery so clearly that the reading of her writings has since restored innumerable victims of so-called incurable diseases to health and usefulness.
