All Error is Unreal

Absolutely speaking, there are no degrees of error, inasmuch as all evil is unreal. Every denial of truth is a lie, an error, and because more detail and greater emphasis are given to the exploitation of this denial, it is not thus rendered a greater untruth. In the study of Christian Science, sickness, sin, and death are classified as error. Why? Because they deny the omnipotence, the omnipresence, and the omniscience of the one perfect God and man as His perfect creation.

When sickness is accepted as a reality, then one denies that health, harmony, concord are realities, and asserts that there is a power apart from God which is equal to if not greater than omnipotent Truth, Life, and Love. In the first chapter of Genesis we read, "God created man in his own image," and, "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." No one can honestly say that a sick, sinning, or dying mortal is the image of God, of Spirit, or is good.
