The Scriptures are timeless sacred records that are relevant to us today. To spiritually understand them is to receive proof that man is God's reflection. As one follows the example of Christ Jesus, he or she glorifies God, who "so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

In my youth questions about relationships, intelligence, and identity plagued me. I sought answers from ministers, doctors, and teachers but received no satisfactory response. As a young woman, I attended my first Sunday service of a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. What I heard there convinced me that I would find the answers to my questions. The brilliant clarification of the relationship of God to man ensured my success. Mrs. Eddy's words from the Explanatory Note for the Bible Lessons, given in the Christian Science Quarterly, stood out as a beacon (p. 2): "The canonical writings, together with the word of our textbook, corroborating and explaining the Bible texts in their spiritual import and application to all ages, past, present, and future, constitute a sermon undivorced from truth, uncontaminated and unfettered by human hypotheses, and divinely authorized."
