Divine Dominion

The religion founded by the followers of Christ Jesus to perpetuate the Master's words and works is based upon the fundamental fact of God's omnipotence and omnipresence. Christ Jesus gave no authority to the supposititious opposites to God, which then, as now, continuously present their clamorous claims to recognition. He proved the all-power of God equal to the destruction of these false presentments, thereby establishing God's dominion over everything unlike good.

Christian Science likewise firmly protests the all-power and all-presence of God and the consequent unreality of every claim to power and presence having some other source and origin than the divine. Christian Science proves its ground by its works, whereby reality becomes established as demonstrable Truth. Following the manner of the Master, Christian Scientists apply their understanding of divine power to the destruction of false beliefs which present themselves as disease and discords of divers forms, thus annulling the so-called laws of matter and proving Mind's control of man. "Mind's government of the body must supersede the so-called laws of matter," writes Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 182); and she adds: "Obedience to material law prevents full obedience to spiritual law,—the law which overcomes material conditions and puts matter under the feet of Mind."
