AS GOD WORKS

Christian Science teaches that the real man exists now at the standpoint of perfection, and from that vantage point he sees all things as they actually exist. We need to gain this true vision. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 316), "The real man being linked by Science to his Maker, mortals need only turn from sin and lose sight of mortal selfhood to find Christ, the real man and his relation to God, and to recognize the divine sonship," This turning from sin and losing sight of mortal selfhood is a most important step in progress.

When a shepherd wishes to save a sheep that has fallen into a rock crevice or a pit he uses the crook of his staff to lift the animal. However, he cannot slip the crook under the sheep to lift it until the animal stops struggling. Therein lies a lesson. As long as one struggles with a problem, believing in its reality, he finds that he is not lifted out of it. The solution to the problem is never found within the problem itself. We need to realize that Truth discloses and unfolds itself. With scientific certainty it disposes of error without contending with it. The very nature of Truth precludes the existence of error.
