The Inextinguishable Light

Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health: "If men would bring to bear upon the study of the Science of Mind half the faith they bestow upon the so-called pains and pleasures of material sense, they would not go on from bad to worse, until disciplined by the prison and the scaffold; but the whole human family would be redeemed through the merits of Christ,—through the perception and acceptance of Truth. For this glorious result Christian Science lights the torch of spiritual understanding." Science and Health, p. 202;

The Christ, Truth, is desperately needed today. When the Master told his students that they were "the light of the world," Matt. 5:14; he was referring to the effect of the Christ, which so illumined his own consciousness that he ultimately made his exit from the flesh through ascension.

In the first chapter of John there is much discussion pertaining to spiritual light. We read that "the light shineth in darkness" John 1:5. 9; and that it "lighteth every man that cometh into the world." This light is inextinguishable. It is everywhere. It reaches human consciousness to light the way even amid black darkness if there is the slightest receptivity.
