Proving that Christian Science is here to stay

From the May 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I had just finished reading the story of Moses’ encounters with God in Exodus. The Bible records that “the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend” (Exodus 33:11). Moses came to have total faith in God. But not content to just witness miraculous events, he yearned to know the why of it all and asked that the divine character, the very Mind of God, be revealed to him. The power realized in Moses’ communion with God changed history and has galvanized people for some 3,500 years. 

Yet, by the time of Christ Jesus’ appearance on earth, the spiritual impact of Moses’ experience seemed all but lost. In my studying, I noticed that Jesus cut through centuries of ritualism and tradition to again make public the ever-present I am of Moses’ experience. But over time, Jesus’ teachings, too, seem to have lost their impact.

That seeming loss has roused me to be more awake to the need to defend the practice of the Science of Christ, which, when Mary Baker Eddy discovered it, brought the spiritual reality Jesus taught, and its healing power, back to public attention. Over several months, some challenging questions persistently came to me, impelling some self-examination of my thinking.
