"A definite rule discovered"

To apply a science successfully, we need definite rules to use. And this is true of Christianity, which is spiritual Science. Under the marginal heading "A definite rule discovered," Mary Baker Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 147): "Our Master healed the sick, practised Christian healing, and taught the generalities of its divine Principle to his students; but he left no definite rule for demonstrating this Principle of healing and preventing disease. This rule remained to be discovered in Christian Science."

A rule is a guide for action, and many rules come under the "definite rule" by which the truths of being revealed by divine Science are made practical. The textbook, Science and Health, is replete with carefully stated rules, and so are the other writings of Mrs. Eddy. Following these rules obediently and in the Christly spirit of their meaning, one cannot fail to demonstrate Christianity in its Science.
