A newcomer to my practice asked me about Christian Science and what its teachings were all about. I replied, “It’s the pursuit of truth.”
I went on to explain that people pray in Christian Science for healing of all sorts of problems, but the bottom line goal is to learn something more about truth. And God is the ultimate Truth.
For instance, if struggling with a disease, a student of Christian Science might ask in prayer, “What is the spiritual truth about me in God’s likeness?” And that truth would not include disease. He would pray to understand God’s likeness better until he could see the unreality of the disease.
Or, if someone lacked money to pay their bills, they might ask in prayer, “What is the truth about my abundance coming from God?” And they would pray to see how God had already met their needs through love, wisdom, care, compassion, and the infinite resources of Mind, and they would continue praying until their growing understanding of abundance made the lack go away.
The study of Christian Science is the pursuit of truth, Truth, God!
God is all good. There is no room, space or place for evil in God, thus evil is not the reality it appears to be. It is not a truth, but a temporal deception of the human mind, a lie, to be conquered and overcome with an understanding of reality, or truth.
Enjoy your pursuit of Truth today!
