A life transformed

Before I found Christian Science, there were a number of things I wondered about. For over two decades, I wondered why Jesus came only for the Jews and did wonderful miracles for them, and others were only to read about his works and teachings as history. I was also puzzled about teachings relating to Jesus’ second coming and to there being a hell for those who live in sin. Everyone I knew was living in sin; therefore, it seemed no one could escape hell. This made religion seem impossible to practice or understand. 

Then one day someone told me that he could do the works Jesus did and that I could do them as well. I was amazed. I asked him if he could live without sin. He answered that it is possible to attain purity and that there is a book whose ideas were making it possible for him to do so. He told me that the book explains the Bible spiritually and that if I read the book and followed its teachings, I would also be able to purify my life. I was excited and that same day went to his house, where he gave me an old copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. 

I read the book day and night for two weeks and went back to tell him that I had finished. He asked me what I understood in the book, and I told him I had seen that God is Love. He said I should continue reading and allow the new ideas from the book to sink in. He said I should think only of those ideas and refuse all contrary thoughts; then I would be more able to emulate the life and works of Jesus.
