THE CHRIST IDEALISM

If perfection were not the present fact, it could never be demonstrated. Therefore, Christian Science is the revelation of true idealism and presents the scientific understanding whereby perfection may be practically evidenced. In the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy, its author, writes (p. 353): "Perfection underlies reality. Without perfection, nothing is wholly real. All things will continue to disappear, until perfection appears and reality is reached."

Because perfection is the fact of being, we see that there is something prophetically indicative in the struggle and striving of mankind to rise into the achievement of higher ideals and accomplishment. Actually, to reach out for an ideal is to reach out for the perfect and eternal. The teaching of Christian Science shows us how the understanding of the real and ideal necessarily becomes the law to what appears as the human experience, and completely transforms it. Through Christian Science we may prove that the ideal is not something illusory and unattainable, but practical, livable, and demonstrable.
