The Rainbow Promise

That "there is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter" (Science and Health, p. 468), is the teaching of Christian Science. Taken broadly, matter means a finite objective universe derived from mental force or material energy. Christian Science teaches that as there can be only one real universe, the result of the one real cause named God, Spirit, matter is simply the expression of a false material sense of this cause and its creation.

God's man, existing in the real spiritual universe, can only express himself by manifesting or objectifying the ideas which come to him directly from God. The false sense of reality, mortal man, projects its own lie about the real in order to account for itself with its supposititious material universe and intelligent mortals. This counterfeit, however, can only seem real to false belief; of itself it has neither fixity nor continuity as material fact or mental impression.
