Christian Science and human progress

In human history, movements of thought come and go. Is Christian Science one of these?

When I first began exploring the teachings of Christian Science, I wasn’t even thinking of it as a movement of thought. I simply had a deep desire to understand the nature of God. Among other things, that quest led me to attend a worship service at a Church of Christ, Scientist. I listened attentively to the sermon, which was read from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. And as I considered thoughtfully what I was hearing, I felt a desire stirring within me to look further into the teachings of Christian Science.

In the display window of a nearby Christian Science Reading Room, the Bible and Science and Health were open, with passages marked for passersby to read. I went in, read further, and I became inspired to explore Science and Health more thoroughly at home; so I bought a copy to go with my Bible, which I loved.
