North Middlesex Chronicle

Replying to a correspondent, let me say that a lie is always enmity against the truth, but it is seen to have no reality or entity when the truth is discerned. The fact that two and two makes four exists everywhere. The belief that two and two makes five in reality does not exist anywhere except in the false consciousness of an individual who may believe it. That two and two makes five is, therefore, a lie about the fact that two and two makes four, and is enmity against the truth; but it does not in reality exist. Surely this illustration should show your correspondent what Christian Science means by the unreality of mortal mind. It corresponds to the belief that two and two makes five.

Again, the premise of Christian Science is that God, Spirit, is infinite, and the conclusion to be drawn from this is that man in the image and likeness of God must be spiritual.
