Christian Science is the fulfilment of the teaching of Jesus the Christ. Thousands of intelligent people, healed through its ministrations, subscribe to its religious tenets, which endorse the sacred and inspired teachings of the Bible and acknowledge Christ as the Son of God and the Wayshower. Christian Science teaches the allness of God, or divine Mind, and His manifestations, but it does not deny nature nor its beauties. Christian Science gives the student a keener delight, a more vivid appreciation, and a grander and higher concept of nature. His mental view is lifted away and above the fading material sense of things up to the spiritual facts of existence, so that his sense of nature becomes more beautiful. Mrs. Eddy says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 331): "As mortals awake from their dream of material sensation, this adorable, allinclusive God, and all earth's hieroglyphics of Love, are understood; and infinite Mind is seen kindling the stars, rolling the worlds, reflecting all space and Life,—but not life in matter. Wisely governing, informing the universe, this Mind is Truth,—not laws of matter." We learn, therefore, from Christian Science that matter is but the concept of the mortal mind, and when hatred, malice, envy, sensuality, and error in its many other forms are displaced by truth, the perfect Mind that Christ Jesus possessed is gained, the true sense of creation is understood.

In referring to material objects Christian Scientists use the same terms as material scientists, but to reach the spiritual understanding of God and His universe it is necessary to adopt a more spiritual terminology and vocabulary, as the terms of the material scientists and the language of the shop and the street are inadequate to explain spiritual truths. The earnest Christian student, willing to learn and accept the definitions of the metaphysical words used, can readily comprehend the teachings of Christian Science. Instead of denying "that God made the heavens, the earth, and the star," Christian Science teaches that "the heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handywork."
