Spiritual Sense

In the study of Christian Science is found the fulfillment of the text, "They shall speak with new tongues;" for Christian Science gives new meanings to certain words which are commonly defined and used in a material way. The word "sense," as an instance, has two distinct meanings: spiritual and material—the spiritual definition implying true perception, consciousness, intelligence. Spiritual sense denies what is called material sense; and it is the only real sense.

Through spiritual sense we may prove that material evidence is always a lie. As we understand God, Spirit, we rise above mortal falsities and are able to claim our inheritance, the ability to apprehend spiritual ideas. Spiritual sense enables us to prove that material evidence has no power; and thus to us it has no halo of idolatry, no beguilements. Spiritual understanding annuls the claim that mortal mind, so called, can prophesy the future by predicting effects, or interpret the past by designating causes; for all understanding comes through the inspiration of divine sense.
