Spiritual education and its profound results

From the April 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In a world seeking safety, health, peace, and prosperity, spiritual education is essential. It gives us an understanding of God, divine Principle. It opens our thought to spiritual solutions not gained by human knowledge and experience. And it saves and heals. 

The word educate is derived from a Latin word meaning “to lead out.” Spiritual education promises to lead us permanently out of fear, ignorance, and error. It enables us to distinguish good from evil, truth from error, reality from unreality. It reveals the allness of God, good, and helps us to reject all that is unlike God. 

According to academic theories, in education teachers’ minds lead the minds of their students. In Christian Science, however, it is understood that God is the only Mind of man—of each one of us as God’s spiritual idea. And this Mind imparts truth. In fact, the divine Mind is the saving Truth for which humanity is yearning. Individuals, through study of divine Science and prayer to the one Mind, are led to understand absolute Truth and to find healing solutions for the problems they may face.
