Fact and Fable

Our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has written (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 129), "If you wish to know the spiritual fact, you can discover it by reversing the material fable, be the fable pro or con,—be it in accord with your preconceptions or utterly contrary to them."

The great fact for all time and eternity is that God is All, the only presence, power, cause, and creator. Another basic fact is that man is God's image and likeness. Man is, because God is. He is the effect of perfect cause, so must exist at the standpoint of perfection; and his spiritual status is unassailable and unalterable. He knows no bonds or limitations, because God knows none. He needs nothing, because he already possesses all good. Man is God's satisfied idea.
