Sustained Evidence

In the affairs of daily living we are confronted with the testimony of material sense. Unfortunately much of this testimony is accepted as true evidence relative to health, harmony, happiness, and general well-being, when in fact it falls far short of being true or of exhibiting the truth about man. It is of the utmost importance that we admit only the facts or truth about ourselves, and this admission should be made and maintained, regardless of material sense testimony.

The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Mary Baker Eddy, declares in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 471). "The facts of divine Science should be admitted,—although the evidence as to these facts is not supported by evil, by matter, or by material sense,—because the evidence that God and man coexist is fully sustained by spiritual sense." In the light of this truth it becomes apparent that, whatever the conditions appear to be, that which is created and controlled by Spirit, revealed and sustained by spiritual sense, is the actual fact, while that which is not so created, controlled, and sustained is never a fact, but is a falsity, an illusion of material sense.
