Christian Science's Argument

To "argue" is to offer reasons, and reasons often start with the word "because." It is important, therefore, to learn to use this word correctly. If we stopped to consider a little more carefully before we used it, we would make a valuable check on unsound reasoning.

Argument is an important factor in Christian Science treatment. This does not mean, however, that students of this Science are argumentative in the usual sense or that they can talk themselves into believing something that is not true. They try to use the word "because" only when it can be supported by some fundamental spiritual truth which satisfies divine logic. They think things through by asking themselves for example: Is this a fact because God is good? Is this a fact because good is ever present? And so on.
