"Follow thou me"

The first tenet of The Mother Church reads, "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life." This tenet is found on page 497 of Science and Health by our Leader. The textbook enables us to understand the spiritual meaning of the Bible and shows us how we can apply Scriptural truths in our daily life.

In the Gospel of John we read that when a disciple once expressed concern over what another disciple was going to do and questioned Jesus about it, he received a reply which included the words (21:22), "What is that to thee? follow thou me." The Master's words indicate clearly that each one is responsible only for his own thinking and action. Therefore, no matter what problem may present itself, a study of the Bible, together with Science and Health, and earnest prayer for guidance can bring the light needed for a right solution.
