Christian Scientists, instead of regarding man as an object of psychological evolution, are striving to know him as God created him in the beginning. This, Mrs. Eddy teaches, can only be done by gaining a victory over the world, the flesh, and the devil, in the manner outlined by Jesus in his Sermon on the Mount.

The five physical senses are shown to be the avenues of temptation by which mortals are drawn aside from the paths of virtue, and thereby imprisoned in the dungeon of sickness and sin. Our hope of salvation is further shown to be in the restoration of our spiritual birthright, by means of which we can prove our power to become the sons of God. It will thus be seen that, instead of attempting to spiritualize the physical universe, Christian Scientists are aiming to bring about the kingdom of God and the brotherhood of man. In spite of the conflicting evidence of sense-testimony, which reports every form of sickness and sin, they declare on Scriptural authority, "Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."
