Sometimes when a young student of Christian Science is counseled to apply his own understanding of the truth to a situation that calls for healing, he appears amazed at the thought, yet in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy states.
For the first time in many centuries mankind is beginning to realize that there is something fundamentally wrong with its concept of how to protect itself from what it regards as wholesale destruction.
Before belief's time-world took form,Or temporal things seemed true,Or solar day brought cloud or storm,Or night obscured Life's view,Or error's serpentine deceitClaimed mortal life began,God saw His universe completeIn perfect spiritual plan.
Membership in The Mother Church, together with membership in one of its branches, affords opportunity for participation in the worldwide healing and redemptive work of Christian Science, as provided for by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy.
I was not primarily interested in healing when I began to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, but I was much in need of a better understanding of God.
