I was told countless times that we were going to know the truth, that is the truth according to God. Sometimes I wondered what that truth was, but remembered that Jesus told us that we had to be like little children to enter into the Kingdom, so I figured that it couldnt be too difficult to understand. I was also taught that our experience in earth is preparing us for whats coming later and that we need to pass each class, accepting the requirements at each new grade level. That means that the courses would be getting more detailed and require more study, even as grade school progresses each year, but that if we apply ourselves to where we are at the time, then we should be ready to move on to the next step without the work being too difficult for us. Ive hesitated along the path many times, afraid to grow on, because I didnt want to do harder work. I had a first grade student like that once- she had learned the alphabet and letter sounds but didnt want to go on to writing sentences, begging instead to just practice the alphabet-but that was not allowed. Jesus told us to Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers and cast out demons. Would he have told us this if it were not possible? Everything Ive learned about God, man, and Christ Jesus, Ive learned from my upbringing in Christian Science, discovered in 1866, by Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Science explains how Gods Laws lift the mist and dust out of our thinking- repentance- so that we can see our reflection as His image and likeness.
