This Bible passage always challenged me because I wondered if my faith in God was really applicable to the world. Were my ideals and faith the outcome of an easy, sheltered life, a middle-class environment, and then the comfortable ivory-tower existence of a university community?

Could I rely on Christian Science in every emergency, even if my environment seemed hostile or without Christian background?
