Opposites

The teaching of Christian Science is in direct opposition to the evidence of the material senses. Now the opposite of truth is a lie, and that material sense testimony is not the truth can be easily understood by any one who will pause for a moment to realize that the sun does not rise in the east and travel round a stationary globe, neither do railway lines meet at the horizon as they appear to do. As a matter of fact, all the evidence of the material universe is based on a lie, and being a lie, must eventually be exposed and vanish into its native nothingness. This lie or false belief is that there is an evil mind or counterfeit of Principle, claiming to be a creator, claiming to produce a material man and to control the destiny of individual men and nations.

The process of exposure is revealed throughout the Bible, but culminates in the piercing denunciation of Jesus the Christ: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." Similarly in this present age, Mrs. Eddy has restated in her book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the all-inclusiveness of God, good, and the consequent nothingness of any opposite manifestation, however real it may seem. In this connection pages 96 and 97 of this wonderful volume will repay careful study by the earnest student of Christian Science. From these two pages in particular, it is plain that this process of exposure is even now taking place. The irresistible force of Principle, Truth, is uncovering the last hiding places of error, whose helpless scream assumes new phases as its final destruction takes place. This period will be of longer or shorter duration according to the consecration or complacency of each individual to whom the message of Truth to this age has come.
