THE FUNDAMENTAL ISSUE

From the February 1913 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Amid the stress and turmoil of a material civilization embracing widely differing ideals and involving rapidly shifting conditions, most individuals find themselves so beset by a multiplicity of pressing and perplexing problems that they are blinded to the fact, made so clear in Christian Science, that the one really fundamental consideration is spiritual, and that all specific human problems bear a merely incidental relation to this issue. According to the rationale of living which appeals to the world at large, the term spirituality stands for a condition of thought and feeling quite apart from the realistic and so-called called practical things of life.
