The healing Principle that’s discoverable—daily!
Occasionally, we hear the word discoverable, referring, for instance, to making things easier to find online or to a lawyer’s right to gain access to documents. More broadly, it simply means something can be discovered. “Eureka!” moments are scientists discovering the discoverable.
In particular, Christian Science is the discovery of spiritual truths that have been discoverable forever. The Bible records the Hebrew fore-fathers, who lived thousands of years ago, proving something of the Science of Christ—the understanding of the universal, spiritual Principle that is God. Later, Jesus’ healings of others, and his own resurrection, proved the dependable, all-governing nature of this original and eternal Principle. Yet the “rule for demonstrating this Principle of healing and preventing disease . . . remained to be discovered in Christian Science,” announced the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 147).
This rule was discovered by Mary Baker Eddy. She authored Science and Health to share what she’d discerned and demonstrated of the scientific basis for the healings recorded in the Scriptures, and of the Christ-power behind such healing. Christian Science reveals this power as the spiritual idea of God. This is the Christ that Jesus’ healings attested to, revealing to human consciousness that God is the one divine Mind, both absolutely good and omniscient. This all-good, all-knowing Mind knows nothing outside of itself—nothing unlike its own infinite goodness.
