"The fruit of her hands"

More than a hundred years ago the most important event of that century and of many centuries took place: Mary Baker Eddy discovered Christian Science, the great spiritual law of spiritual healing, and dedicated her life to the giving of this law to humanity, thus founding the Christian Science movement.

The world of that day was shocked at what it called her heresy. Her challenge to the three great channels of human thought—theology, medicine, and material science—was tremendous. To theology she said that God is not a glorified person who both blesses and condemns mankind, swayed at times by prayer to change His will, but unapproachable at other times. She also said that God's will is not at times tyrannical and even cruel, but that it is good— infinite, unchanging good! She declared that Deity does not express anger, repentance, and changeableness, for He is divine Truth, Life, Love, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Principle. Heaven, she taught, is not a far-off place to be reached only after death but is within our consciousness, even as Christ Jesus taught.
