Return, O Israel

WHEN Mary Baker Eddy startled the world many years ago with her statement of the nothingness of matter, there were very few who were willing to accept her discovery, and when she further announced that what religious belief had called God is not a person but Principle governing the entire universe, many people objected. She argued that this Principle is Spirit, and that since the creation of Spirit must be spiritual, the real man must also be spiritual. The inference from this reasoning was plain, that Spirit was capable of doing all the creating, as a matter of fact always had been the only creator, and hence man in spite of all his assumptions was not and never can be the creator of a single thing that is real.

A few brave thinkers accepted her views, which to her were revelations, not views or beliefs, and as time went on and more thinkers read her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the numbers grew, and much marvelous healing was done through the application of the understanding gained through the study of the book. It was recognized that the healing must follow as a proof of that understanding, and that the fundamental truth on which this healing is based is the unreality of all that is not the creation of God, Spirit.
