"The Science of perfectibility"

The highest concept of human attainment falls so far short of perfection that mankind have generally compromised in their efforts to reach such a goal. It is popularly thought that perfection in this stage of existence is beyond our present capacities. Indeed, a hint of sarcasm often accompanies the inference that one should think himself perfect.

The teachings of Christian Science, introduced by Mrs. Eddy, have brought the goal of perfection into clearer focus. Attaining this goal is not only possible but is indispensable to one's correct understanding of health and harmony. While conceding that mortals are far from perfect, this Science maintains that humanity can be lifted above its imperfections only by acknowledging God as perfect cause and His creation as perfect effect. This involves replacing one's material concept of identity with the true spiritual concept exemplified by Christ Jesus.
