Starting from a Right Premise

How important is a right premise! It is helpful in forming human opinions. It is necessary in classes of logic and courts of law. And it is absolutely vital to the successful practice of Christian Science.

One derivation of the word "premise" is from a word meaning "to place ahead," and the definition of "premise" in line with this is "a proposition antecedently supposed or proved: a basis of argument." Mrs. Eddy writes, "To begin rightly is to end rightly."Science and Health, p. 262; How do we begin with a right premise? By beginning with God. By beginning with the premise that God is perfect and that He is the only creator of the universe including man. And reasoning correctly, we come to the conclusion that creation is perfect.
