Admitting the truth of the Bible we must accept its statements that God made all, and that all He made will stand forever. Since God is Spirit, as the Bible teaches, all that He created must be like Him, spiritual, since it is inconceivable that a spiritual noumenon could be the cause of material phenomena. In its insistence that matter is temporal, unreal, inasmuch as God did not make it, Christian Science is in perfect agreement with the Scriptures.

Christian Science teaches that what we term matter is but the subjective state of mortal or material mind, cognizable only through the material senses. In his second epistle to the Corinthians Paul says: "The things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal." On page 286 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, this is made clear in these words: "God's thoughts are perfect and eternal, are substance and Life. Material and temporal thoughts are human, involving error, and since God, Spirit, is the only cause, they lack a divine cause. The temporal and material are not then creations of Spirit. They are but counterfeits of the spiritual and eternal."
