Today, perhaps more than ever before, mankind is seeking a way out of worry. People worry if all is not well, if sin, sickness, lack, or other discords seem a part of experience. Conversely, men often worry if all is well, fearing that things are "too good to be true," and that well-being, health, and prosperity cannot last.

It is a well-established fact that thousands of students of Christian Science have experienced much joy and a large measure of freedom from worry through the consecrated study of the Bible, together with the works of Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Scientists have been able to demonstrate this freedom because Mrs. Eddy gave to the world the spiritual rules and laws which enable the Scientist to successfully overcome false, mortal beliefs of intelligence in matter or of the supposed reality of evil.

Mankind generally approaches the problem of worry from the standpoint of matter's reality and evil's domination. Christian Science approaches any problem from the standpoint of perfect God and perfect man, Spirit and its spiritual idea, and thus does away with the belief of matter's reality and establishes the fact of man's spiritual dominion. Mrs. Eddy did not delve into a discussion of the why and wherefore of worry; rather did she destroy its claim to power by revealing man as God's image and likeness, as the Bible declares.
