The statement by a speaker at the Convocation of Canterbury, "I do not suppose there is any more fantastic theory than that on which Christian Science is founded — the theory that matter and the body do not exist, and that therefore pain cannot exist" — is incorrect and misleading.

The teaching of Christian Science is that matter is a false sense or concept of real substance. Christian Science teaches that the source or Principle of the universe is the one infinite Mind or Spirit, God, and that the universe consists of His ideas, infinite in number. These ideas exist in the infinite Mind, hence their substance is Spirit; and to spiritual consciousness they are real, tangible, and harmonious.
