God showed me what was true

While I was getting my doctorate in religious education at New York University, I spent quite a bit of time reading the Bible. As I read and pondered its teachings, I found it harder and harder to reconcile what I was reading in the Scriptures with what I was studying in theology class.

I spent many hours praying about this, begging God to show me what was true. At the time, I was active in an interfaith university group that included a Christian Scientist. One night as I was praying, I felt God was directing me to ask this woman about Christian Science. I’d been disappointed when exploring human thought systems because I couldn’t reconcile them with what I was learning in the Bible; they were more about personal mental power than God, and did not seem Christly in their message. Yet, much as I loved the church of which I was a member, it wasn’t answering my questions either.
