A Solemn Promise
If we had to choose a single directive to explain what Christianity stands for, Paul's admonition to the Philippians would serve very well: "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." Phil. 2:5; In other words, learn how Jesus thought, clearly, concisely, compassionately, constructively, and authoritatively, as well as prayerfully, and learn to have no thought apart from God, the one divine Mind.
Paul was not asking the Philippians, or the many other Christians since their time, to do something impossible. He was asking them to be willing to be spiritually-minded, to be conscious of divine reality and direction.
Christian Science explains that anyone can learn to do this. The Mind which was in Christ Jesus was not a human, personal mind, however elevated in character, that everyone else must try to emulate. Jesus consciously acknowledged, claimed, and reflected the one divine Mind, which he often called "Father.' Besides, he showed it not only to be possible but also imperative for each one of his followers to do this. And he gave convincing proof that the effect of such conscious reflection is to inspire human experience and solve human problems.
