By Mary Baker Eddy 

The Rules and By-Laws in the Manual of The First 
Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, originated not in 
solemn conclave as in ancient Sanhedrim. They were 
not arbitrary opinions nor dictatorial demands, such as 
one person might impose on another. They were im- 
pelled by a power not one's own, were written at differ- 
ent dates, and as the occasion required. They sprang 
from necessity, the logic of events,--from the immedi- 
ate demand for them as a help that must be supplied to 
maintain the dignity and defense of our Cause; hence 
their simple, scientific basis, and detail so requisite to 
demonstrate genuine Christian Science, and which will 
do for the race what absolute doctrines destined for future 
generations might not accomplish.
