Spiritual Sense

Jesus declared that the purpose of his life was to "bear witness unto the truth" (John 18:37). What he taught and proved was the reality or truth of being. It was the truth as to God and man and as to God's law for man. It was the truth as to God's goodness, as to man's life derived from God, and as to man's freedom from what seems to be a life of mingled good and evil.

Christian Science accepts and reiterates this fundamental aspect of original Christianity. It distinguishes absolutely between what is real and what is apparent or seeming but not real, and it puts this distinction into practice for the benefit and betterment of mankind. There is no reality beyond what is absolutely good. Evil of every sort is illusive and unreal. These ideas are of inestimable value to mankind, not only because they are true, but because they can be put into practical use; they can be demonstrated in human experience.
