The precision with which Christ Jesus overcame the distresses of humanity shows that he was applying an absolute and divine Science to these errors and that his understanding of it was complete. Others before him had applied this Science in a measure, as when in Old Testament times the sick were healed, the dead raised, a large number fed with very little food, and weather conditions controlled. Today, because of Mary Baker Eddy's great discovery, this same divine Science is available to everyone, and unnumbered healings have taken place through its application by those who have understood its Principle and obeyed its rules.

The Principle of divine Science is Love, God, and the fundamental rule in its practice is to express the nature and will of Love. The healing Principle can never be dissociated from the divine character, and it is the nature of divinity expressed by individuals that makes it possible to bring divine Principle successfully to bear upon human problems. In her Message to The Mother Church for 1901, Mrs. Eddy says (pp. 1, 2), "As Christian Scientists you seek to define God to your own consciousness by feeling and applying the nature and practical possibilities of divine Love: to gain the absolute and supreme certainty that Christianity is now what Christ Jesus taught and demonstrated—health, holiness, immortality." And she continues, "The highest spiritual Christianity in individual lives is indispensable to the acquiring of greater power in the perfected Science of healing all manner of diseases."
