Its “Clear Correct Teaching”
“Christian Science: ‘It’s Clear Correct Teaching’”
(Pages v – viii)
The multiplication of books has no justification unless something new can be added to the subject-matter under discussion.
Nothing can be added to the completeness of Mrs. Eddy’s statement of Christian Science, Science and Health, the textbook of Christian Science, for it is all-sufficient, needing no amplification or elucidation.
What, then, it may be properly be asked, is the reason for this book?
The answer must rest upon the effectiveness with which it helps the reader to understand Christian Science and so proves “useful” (S&H Pref. x:10) in compelling him to think Science and Health, instead of merely reading its words.
During the thirty-two years that I have been holding Christian Science classes, approximately twenty-seven hundred people have attended them and, inevitably, countless questions have arisen.
Since 1923 there has been no restriction placed upon the taking of notes in the classes, as it has been my conviction that each one has the right to acquire an understanding of Christian Science in his own way. As a consequence, there are in circulation a great many notes taken by various persons and passed about among friends.
When these were brought to me, as sometimes happened, with the request that I correct or revise them, I invariably refrained from doing so because notes convey to the one who originally took them vastly more than appears on the surface. Were another to attempt to revise them, their meaning to the recorder might be endangered.
But with this large accumulation of notes in a wide diversity of phrasing already circulating freely, it is, I feel, not only expedient but honest that I should state clearly—by going completely through a class—the fundamentals of the pure metaphysical reasoning of “clear, correct teaching, (Miscellany 297:18) as it has unfolded in the various classes.
A class in Christian Science is spontaneous communion with Mind. Questions and answers arise naturally in the course of its unfoldment, for “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord,” (Isaiah 1:18) is the invitation of Mind always.
Each class is individual in character and progresses from its own starting point as though it were evolving for the first time.
A Christian Science class is not a lecture course. It has nothing about it that is stereotyped. It is purely spontaneous from beginning to end, full of “wit, humor, and enduring vivacity.” (Miscellany 117:11)
However, there is the general foundation upon which all classes must be laid, and it is the purpose of this book to present such a foundation.
A record of what has taken place in the discussion of a subject is not at all the same thing as an effort to reformulate the subject. A book, for instance, may record facts deduced from mathematics without reformulating the basic principles of mathematics. It is impossible, in fact, to reformulate a subject that has once been revealed as exact scientific truth. As such, it is unchangeable, and thereafter it is only possible to draw conclusions from it that are applicable to human advancement. Hence this book will be a presentation of facts deduced and the fundamentals from which they are deduced, not an attempt to reformulate the subject.
It is, of course, impossible to go into the minutiae of class discussion because every class takes its own trend according to the demand of those in the class. It is my purpose to cover the general ground of what the metaphysical reasoning and the application of such reasoning in Christian Science actually means, and, in doing so, to show how it is in consonance with all that Mrs. Eddy has written on this subject.
For the unselfish assistance of a number of scholarly, consecrated Christian Scientists in the preparation of this book, I am deeply grateful.
If the book proves profitable to the reader, I know his appreciation of their work will be added to mine.

************The following is an excerpt from Mr. Eustace's "Clear Correct Teaching"************
The “Pilgrim Fathers” were the “Separatists” who separated themselves entirely from bondage to ecclesiastical and political formulas and founded what is called
The Puritans, on the contrary, did not wholly separate themselves from their old affiliations. They still clung to an ecclesiastical mental unity with the old theology and still looked to an intermediary in the form of the ordained minister between themselves and God, even in the conduct of government. So they could not be wholly single-minded in their purpose.
It was not the Pilgrims who indulged in the
It is not the Puritans, but the Pilgrims who are the real “fathers” of
At first, the Pilgrims felt that community interest, rather than individual interest, in crops would better serve their ends, for the moment. But they quickly learned, as Governor Bradford records in his “History,” that collectivism was doomed to failure. Complete individuality was essential for true spirituality and prosperity - as it always must be.
Beardsley, in his work, “The Builders of a Nation,” brings this out clearly on page 265:
“Until the spring of 1623, Plymouth Colony had been upon a communistic basis. The houses of the settlers were individual property but the crops were raised in common for their general consumption. The results, however, did not justify the continuance of the scheme. ‘At length,’ he wrote Bradford, ‘after much debate of things, the Governor (with the advice of the chiefest amongst them) gave way that they should set corn every man for his own particular, and in that regard trust to themselves; in all others things to go in the general way as before . . . . This had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little ones with them to set corn, which before would allege weakness, and inability; whom, to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression!’
Man, as God’s idea, is necessarily individual.
The negative is as individual as is that which is negatives and cannot be changed. The attempt of evil to change
To surrender its Pilgrim heritage, would be to sell the birthright of
Mrs. Eddy emphasizes individualism thus: “Is not a man metaphysically and mathematically number one, a unit, and therefore whole number, governed and protected by his divine Principle, God?”
This individualism, this oneness is
All forms of government ownership are subtle attempts of evil to thwart this individualism. Government, like Principle, exists because of its citizen, or idea. It does not and cannot exist alone. Then government’s ownership, possession and being must be shown forth as the owning, possessing and being of its man, its citizen.
If government owned and man did not, there could be no ownership expressed and government would fall.
Man, individually, owns all as idea. He does not own it collectively any more than he owns the multiplication table collectively. This in no way interferes with the inevitable combination or merger of like businesses - expressing the one business in which all can be owners, but only as individuals, never as government ownership.
Government has no place in business, as such, any more than God is in man.
Man is the business of God and shows forth God’s business in individual ownership, expression and unfoldment.
He needs no interfering with, and will brook none.
Man’s diadem is his eternal individuality as the expression of the one infinite Mind.
The true sense of what the Pilgrim Fathers,
