The belief in the unreality of matter would little profit us if we did not know the reality and allness of God. In Christian Science we believe that God is all, and that He is Spirit; and that man, being His image and likeness, must be spiritual; hence, if God, Spirit, is real, and God is all, the unreality of matter is but the necessary deduction; but Mrs. Eddy teaches that the belief in the reality of matter will not be entirely overcome in our consciousness until each has fully demonstrated the omnipresence of God.

Christian Science does not assume to eliminate nature, for whatever is natural is true, and a truth exists forever; but it does assume that God's laws are the only natural laws, and that these laws were taught by Jesus. He did not teach that sickness or disease was natural. His mission was to show their unnaturalness, that sickness had no causation, except sin; and if we do not obey the will, or law, of God, or if we obey so-called natural laws which He did not make, we shall certainly be punished, as the sins of omission or commission bring their own reward.
