The Dividing Line

To mortal sense there seem to be two sides to existence—the spiritual and the material, the positive and the negative, the real and the unreal. All through the ages there has been a flowing and ebbing tide of human belief, bringing at one time apparent health, happiness, and peace, and at another sin, sickness, and death. Yet throughout all mortal vicissitudes, the divine Word of God has been declaring the unchanging, undisturbed universe of God's creating.

In the first chapter of Genesis it is recorded that "God made the firmament," dividing the waters from the waters; dividing the light from the darkness, the day from the night. In the Glossary to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 586) Mrs. Eddy gives the spiritual definition of "firmament" as "spiritual understanding; the scientific line of demarcation between Truth and error, between Spirit and so-called matter."
