Dispelling Illusions

For ages it was believed that the earth was flat. At the time of Jesus, and for centuries before and after, this belief in a flat world obtained. In the course of time, however, the world was discovered to be round or spheroidal, and it was so declared. All through the ages in which the world was believed to be flat, the fact of its rotundity existed. This fact needed only to be discovered and demonstrated.

For ages it has been believed that man is material, or both material and spiritual. Notwithstanding this ignorant belief about man's nature, the fact is that man is wholly spiritual. Jesus, the Christ, taught that man is spiritual. He said, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has in this age amplified and explained the teaching of Jesus regarding man's spiritual nature. Writing on page 476 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," she says, "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals."
