Acknowledging Spirit's Supremacy

The great truth on which the teaching of Christian Science is based is the allness of God. God is infinite good, omnipotent, omnipresent Spirit, omniscient Mind; and nothing real exists outside of Himself. Whoever would learn of real being and be able to distinguish between reality and unreality must be convinced of God's allness and supremacy. "God is a Spirit," said Jesus, "and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

The truth that God is infinite good, infinite Spirit, that He exists without an opposite, strikes at the very root of the fallacy which holds mankind in bondage, namely, that evil and matter are real. What is it that would cause us to believe that matter and evil are real? Material sense. This sense appears to argue, through sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell, that matter, the opposite of Spirit, has real being; and this same sense appears to argue as forcibly that evil, the opposite of good, likewise has real being. But when we are convinced of the allness of Spirit, when we are convinced that Spirit is good, the suggestions of material sense cannot longer deceive us concerning matter and evil; we understand that they are unreal.
