The Comfort of Principle

Christian Science is for the full comfort, healing, and salvation of mankind. It shows the way of spiritual progress to release from sin and sickness—and not only from these self-evident evils but also from relatively good human conditions, which are nevertheless limited. We are made by God for the unfenced freedom of pure, spiritual bliss, without hint of discord, and Christian Science is the divinely ordained means by which we will eventually attain it.

The Principle of this Science is divine Love, the living Truth sustaining all creation; it is God, Spirit, who creates only the spiritual and perfect, since He expresses His own nature. In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy says, "This Principle makes whole the diseased, and brings out the enduring and harmonious phases of things." Science and Health, pp. 487—488;

Christ Jesus, who supremely demonstrated the healing and liberating power of divine Science, revealed God in word and deed as our loving Father. But he said to his disciples: "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth." John 16:12, 13; May we reasonably assume that the world had much to learn before it would be ready for the revelation of God as Principle?
