Grow spiritually with the Church Manual

Regarding an individual's spiritual growth, Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science and author of the Manual of The Mother Church, writes, "Of this I am sure, that each Rule and By-law in this Manual will increase the spirituality of him who obeys it, invigorate his capacity to heal the sick, to comfort such as mourn, and to awaken the sinner." The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 230.

Simply reading the By-Laws may have little effect in helping one attain a better understanding of God and of man's relationship to Him, and of how to heal the sick. The statement, however, refers to obeying each By-Law. It is the deep study of the Bible and the writings of Mrs. Eddy, put into practice within the framework of the Church Manual, that progressively spiritualizes one's thinking.
