Self-Knowledge

From the July 5, 1924 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


The so-called mortal mind, or the "carnal mind," as Paul designates this conglomeration of unspiritual thoughts or beliefs, is nothing other than a pretense and a pretender. Every one of the carnal mind's claims is a sham; every one of its so-called laws is but a baseless imposition; its government or kingdom is a mockery; its assumed influence and attraction is a negation; its seeming creations are counterfeits.
