"THE EL DORADO OF CHRISTIANITY"

IT is safe to say that we all have our El Dorados, goals that we seek from the first moments when in childhood fancy we build castles in the air. Men ceaselessly pursue material power, wealth, and fame only to find that the attainment of such objectives does not bring lasting happiness or true peace of mind. Many have echoed the words of the Preacher (Eccl. 2:11), "Behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit and there was no profit under the sun."

Mary Baker Eddy was a seeker and finder of the true El Dorado. She writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 9): "Dost thou 'love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind'? This command includes much, even the surrender of all merely material sensation, affection, and worship. This is the El Dorado of Christianity." She then adds, "It involves the Science of Life, and recognizes only the divine control of Spirit, in which Soul is our master, and material sense and human will have no place."
