Start with the solution

One very encouraging aspect of studying Christian Science is that it offers a solution to any type of problem. From individual concerns to global ones, this Science offers divine Truth to correct the situation. 

Christian Science does this by starting with the solution, reasoning intelligently from the basis of the allness of God—of God’s divine presence and eternal control as the one Mind, the only true cause of existence. When we glimpse the truth of God as the only Mind—the Mind of man and the source of all being—we begin where Christ Jesus did. He understood the allness of God, divine Spirit, and his teachings and example show that “to begin rightly is to end rightly” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 262). 

In fact, Jesus was so conscious of Mind as the source of reality that he could prove the presence and power of God by canceling the effects on individuals of believing in mortality. No matter what human problems were brought to his attention, Jesus was never influenced by the pernicious belief in a material world filled with mortals coping with mortality. Jesus’ fidelity to the spiritual understanding that there is only one Mind and its expression, man, rather than many competing independent mortal minds, brought him success in healing.
