Mortals have a material concept of God's universe, manifested in decay and death, and it is this material concept that Christian Science seeks to destroy, so that we may behold all the glories of the universe even as God sees them. This is strictly in accord with Scripture, as recorded by the apostle Paul: "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."

Christian Science denies the reality of sin and disease only in the sense that they are not of God and consequently not eternal. It recognizes these conditions as a part of mortal existence, and teaches that they must be overcome and destroyed, and it imparts the spiritual ability to do this. Christian Science is not primarily a school of physical healing, but is a religion,—the religion of Jesus,—and is based wholly upon the Scriptures. It does not deny the atonement, resurrection, and ascension. On the contrary, it emphasizes these most important factors in the salvation of mankind. The physical healing occurring in Christian Science is only the evidence of the spiritual purgation that is taking place in the life of the patient. While those healed in Christian Science are grateful for the physical restoration, they treasure more highly the spiritual uplifting that is its inevitable accompaniment.
