PUT YOUR SPIRITUALITY TO THE TEST

New Age movements dating from the early 1970s, which often embrace Eastern-influenced metaphysical thought systems, have blurred the distinction for some people between "being religious" and "being spiritual."

Mary Baker Eddy, herself a religious leader, minced no words in discussing this subject. In 1892 she wrote, "Spirituality is the basis of all true thought and volition." She also said, "Through the accession of spirituality, God, the divine Principle of Christian Science, literally governs the aims, ambition, and acts of the Scientist" (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, pp. 156, 204). Such passages leave one in little doubt that the source of spirituality—and that includes everyone—is our relationship with God.
