The Supremacy of Mind

In the chapter "Recapitulation" in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 469), its author, Mary Baker Eddy, asks the question, "What is Mind?" and her reply presents the truth of the allness of God, which when apprehended enables the student to demonstrate the Principle of Christian Science in healing the sick, reforming the sinner, correcting wrong traits of character, and dispelling the fear of lack or limitation.

Through education, association, environment, and human standards, mortals had been led into believing the time-worn lie that intelligence exists apart from God; that it is dependent upon the gray matter of the brain; and that it wields an influence over mortals for good or evil. The way out of this position is made so plain by Mrs. Eddy in Christian Science, that anyone embracing her teachings can grasp the fundamental truths that Mind is God, good; that all that He creates is like Him, good; and that, therefore, evil was never created by Him, and is consequently without power or presence.
