ADHERING TO PRINCIPLE

Divine Principle is a term of supreme importance in Christian Science. The student of this Science learns that Principle, eternal Life, or Soul, is vital to his present experience and that obedience to it brings concrete blessings. "Principle" is defined in a dictionary as "a source or cause from which a thing proceeds; a power that acts continuously or uniformly; a permanent or fundamental cause that naturally or necessarily produces certain results."

In human experience anything that is considered stable and reliable is supported by a fixed rule. The principle of mathematics is used and depended upon constantly for accurate results in finances, physics, building, and almost every phase of human life. If the architect and the construction engineer did not have this accurate, irrefutable, unfailing principle to apply to their work, they could not expect certain and correct results from their plans. A tunnel may be started simultaneously on opposite sides of a river. Slowly it will take form; each side will be built separately, and yet the sides will meet precisely in the center. The certainty of the fundamental rules of mathematics, physics, and architecture, when correctly applied, makes this possible.
