What Christian Science Can Do for Us

Christian Science encourages us to seek a spiritual sense of ourselves, a sense of our oneness with God as His expression. It enables us to assess our abilities, our possibilities our responsibilities in terms of this relationship. It helps us to gain a satisfying sense of our present existence, including our relationship with others, through a correct understanding of our inseparability from God.

A helpful paragraph on page 128 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy bears the marginal heading "Practical Science." When I first saw how valuable Science could be to me in my business life, I quickly memorized this particular paragraph. Seldom was there a day in which I did not expectantly turn my attention to the promises it conveys. The paragraph begins with this statement: "The term Science properly understood, refers only to the laws of God and to His government of the universe, inclusive of man."

It is helpful to note that here the word "Science" is spelled with a capital S, which elevates the word to its absolute, or divine, status. Omniscience can be attributed only to Deity. True Science, then, must be divine.
