The Challenge of Education

"There is no skepticism in Mind, for Mind, being omniscient, knows all there really is to know"

Our Leader tells us in Science and Health (p. 195): "Academics of the right sort are requisite. Observation, invention, study, and original thought are expansive and should promote the growth of mortal mind out of itself, out of all that is mortal." This is a helpful statement for young people who are pursuing their academic education to bear in mind. In the course of their studies they will be required to grapple with certain subjects which may seem to throw doubt on the teachings of Christianity. Such a challenge should not disturb the Christian Science student if he recognizes it as such.
