The basic truth of Christian Science is that God is Spirit, and that man is made in His image and likeness; that God, Spirit, created all; therefore, all is Spirit and spiritual. This, as one can readily see, involves the reversal of the testimony of the physical senses. The Christian religion has no basis whatever if the testimony of the physical senses is valid, for if this testimony is to be depended upon, the immaculate conception is ruled out of the question, the marvelous works of Christ Jesus, the apostles and prophets, are fiction, the resurrection and ascension mere figments of a disordered brain, and immortality a myth. Christ Jesus said, "Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die," and St. Paul declares that Christ Jesus "hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light;" yet the apostles and St. Paul are dead, according to the testimony of the physical senses, and it cannot be disputed that the eleven apostles and St. Paul believed in the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
