The Reward of Overcoming

Christian Science teaches that there is only one real power—God. In doing this it is met with the seeming opposition of the carnal mind, which is altogether on the side of matter or evil. Men are called upon to face this question and to come to a right decision regarding it, for upon the decision depends their spiritual, moral, and even physical well-being.

How does Christian Science regard God and so-called matter and evil? It affirms that God is infinite Spirit and that, since He is infinite, there does not exist anything unlike Himself. It thus maintains that what is called matter has no real existence. Again, Christian Science declares that, since God is infinite good, evil is unreal. It holds steadfastly to this reasoning. If Christian Science deviated from it in any degree it would be unfaithful to revealed Truth. God is omnipotent, the only real power. God is omnipresent, the only real presence. God is omniscient, the only real intelligence. There is thus no power, presence, or intelligence apart from God. Mrs. Eddy writes on page 569 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "Every mortal at some period, here or hereafter, must grapple with and overcome the mortal belief in a power opposed to God."
