Seeing and Hearing

Since perfect Mind imparts to man his senses, man has no material sense through which to see anything material or faulty or to hear anything untrue, libelous. In absolute fact, nothing exists to be seen or heard but the verity of the one spiritual universe, including man.

Clear of vision and keen of understanding, Christ Jesus moved in Mind's universe, and through his true sight and hearing brought to humanity manifold tokens of Mind's healing power. Through the mist of material evidence and the mental clamor of lying arguments, he maintained the keenness of spiritual hearing and the penetration of spiritual perception. Thus he brought about the instantaneous destruction of sin, disease, and death in the thought and experience of those who responded to his ministry.

Spiritual sight and hearing are God's irrevocable gifts to man, and by them he is always aware of his sonship. As spiritual sense is cherished and exercised by the Christian Scientist, the new heaven and the new earth appear to him as they did to John during his exile on the island of Patmos. Humanly exiled the beloved disciple might appear to be, but never spiritually exiled. No one can be alienated from God and his true identity save through his own consent to believe in the actuality of matter and evil, which is virtually a denial of the omnipresence of God, good.
