Reasoning from reality

We can often be deceived by the way things look. Seaweed twisting, leaning, undulating in the blue ocean may look as though it is itself originating its motion, instead of simply responding to the currents about it. The actuality is not the same as the seeming.

Christian Science leads us to question some appearances in a very fundamental way—that of disease, for a primary example. In fact, a change in our mode of reasoning—its premises and direction—has everything to do with developing an ability to heal spiritually, to maintain a sense of wellbeing, to live more lovingly and ethically. And, above all, to grow in understanding Deity and His infinite spiritual phenomena.
