Man Necessary to God

Many people fail to understand the difference that is made in Christian Science between the spiritual creation described in the first chapter of Genesis and the mortal and material creation depicted in the second chapter. They find it hard to reconcile the account of the spiritual man—perfect, finished, and pronounced by his creator "good"—with that of the man made of the dust of the ground, until they grasp the import of the interlude between the chapters and realize the significance of the statement regarding the mist which arose.

The nature of a mist or fog is to distort objects and frequently to create fear and mystification. We learn in Christian Science that the arguments and pictures of materiality are appearances produced by the mist of a supposititious material, so-called mind, and that they are not produced by the real Mind, or God.
