Christian Science does not claim that to the human, mortal, and immature senses men do not sin, suffer, and die. Indeed the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," abounds in instruction how to overcome these disturbers of human peace and happiness, which instruction fully accords with the teachings and demonstrations of Jesus the Wayshower, whose mission was to teach this very thing.

Christian Science maintains that the true man, the spiritual man, whose creation is recorded in the first chapter of Genesis, can no more sin or suffer than can God, his creator, in whose likeness man is created; and it will appear that in this Christian Science does not essentially differ from the teaching of other Christian denominations. By a realization of this scientific fact, this truth relative to man and his relation to his Maker, many a "poor fellow pinched with hunger, shivering with cold," has risen out of such a condition of disorder and inharmony into peace, happiness, and a return to usefulness.

It is obvious that if evil and its results are real, in the absolute sense, they must be God-created, for He created all; and if of God's creating they would thus be impossible of destruction. That they can be destroyed and eliminated from man's experience, also the fact that Jesus taught how to dispose of them, are proofs of their unreality.
