Spiritual Evidence

The Christian Scientist never ceases to be grateful that Christian Science enables him to distinguish between spiritual truth and material belief, between the real and the unreal. Christian Science has shown him that man possesses spiritual sense, the sense which reveals God and all that pertains to God; or, to put it differently, Christian Science has made clear to him that spiritual sense bears witness in his consciousness to God and to all that pertains to the divine; and for this his gratitude is unspeakably great.

It is nothing less than wonderful that men are endowed with power, through spiritual sense, to perceive the truth about God; to understand that He is Spirit or Mind, that He is infinitely good, or perfect, and that His creation, including individual man, being the reflection of God, is spiritual and perfect. That is what Christian Science is unfolding to mankind today, unhesitatingly, emphatically.

When, through the spiritual evidence brought to him by means of spiritual sense, the student of Christian Science is convinced of the nature of God and of His creation, he becomes equally certain as to the unreal or false nature of material sense and of all to which material sense appears to bear witness. Thus, he becomes aware of the unreality of matter and evil. He sees that all the material phenomena witnessed to by the material senses are without entity or true being; he beholds evil, in each and all of its seeming phases, as nothing. From the moment of becoming conscious of the nature of reality, that is, of God and His manifestation, the student's eyes are opened to the utterly illusory nature of all things unspiritual. And so "a new heaven and a new earth" begin to be revealed to him.
