Unreality of Sin

Christian Science has attracted world-wide attention because its efficacy as a method of healing physical diseases has been thoroughly demonstrated and tested. Considerable thought and discussion have been given to this particular phase of the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. In numerous places throughout her writings, however, Mrs. Eddy shows that one of the primary causes of all discordant conditions is sin. In Science. It is only the bugle-call to thought and action, in the higher range of infinite goodness. The emphatic purpose of Christian Science is the healing of sin; and this task, sometimes, may be harder than the cure of disease; because, while mortals love to sin, they do not love to be sick." The grateful testimony from all over the world of thousands whose lives have been regenerated through the study and application of the healing truth, is irrefutable evidence that "the emphatic purpose of Christian Science" to which Mrs. Eddy refers, is being accomplished.

On more than one occasion Christ Jesus reiterated that his mission was not to save the righteous but the sinner. He was always loving and compassionate toward the sinner because his clear understanding of man's true relationship to God enabled him to see that sin is the result of erroneous thinking, which needs to be and can be corrected. Sinful thoughts and desires are no part of the real man, and God does not inflict them on His children. They are products of the so-called mortal or carnal mind, which Paul said is "enmity against God."
