Radical living and scientific Christianity

As a student I was an idealist. Like many others in my generation, which came of age in the 1960s, I was involved in political activity. At that time I had no formal religion of my own. I felt, however, that there must be more to life than what was presented to me by the dominant thought of my culture. I began a long search that led me eventually to Christian Science.

As student activists we wanted to free our lives from materialism. The Science of Christ teaches that all is Spirit, God, and His spiritual creation. The material senses report the apparent substantiality of matter. Nevertheless, even our day-to-day experiences show that the material senses are not reliable. Spiritual sense, alone, reports the truth of being—that what is really substantial is man's spiritual nature, not the material.
