From clairvoyance to Christian Science

One of an occasional series of articles by young people who in recent years have become Christian Scientists. They explain how they became interested in Christian Science, what convinced them of its utility and truth, and how its teachings have changed their lives.

As a youngster I turned to religion for answers, but I was dissatisfied with traditional theology. The concept that Christ Jesus was the only begotten Son of God bothered me. I felt it meant that no matter how hard I tried, no matter how much God loved me, I would never be as acceptable to Him as Jesus, never as perfect as His Son. So why even try?
