From the August 1886 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The ambition of mankind cannot engage in a nobler and more profitable pursuit in the world, than to employ every faculty in conforming self, and all things subordinate to self, to the model presented by the man Jesus. To derive edification and help from the example of Jesus, his teachings and work should be studied and received, and applied to all our necessities—to sin and sickness—in just as practical ways, and with just as much determination of purpose, as the methods adopted and employed in various mercantile, professional, and artistic pursuits.
