Learning about Jesus

What did I know about Christ Jesus before I studied Christian Science? Not too much; I wasn't too fond of him. My limited knowledge included the impression that he had coldly condemned all unbelievers to hellfire. I thought our Saviour should have been a little more compassionate. And I wasn't interested in learning much more.

When I began attending Christian Science church services and studying the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I discovered I was totally mistaken about Jesus. I opened my mind and opened my eyes and found there was so much to learn about the Messiah! Not Jesus, but I, was condemning myself to a loveless existence by not knowing about and accepting God's great love for man, so clearly shown in Jesus' life and teachings.
