DRAWING THE LINE OF DEMARCATION

Because Christian Science is the Science of Mind, it is dealing at all times with that which is spiritually mental. Its premise is that Mind is All-in-all and that matter and material sense are never factors in real being. The student of Christian Science soon discovers that he is concerned importantly with mental causation, and therefore he is led to give his attention to thought, and specifically to his own thought. His study leads him to contemplate and continuously observe his own consciousness and every thought that appears in it. He begins to see that through spiritual understanding he is gaining a gradual dominion and control over his mental home, and that he cannot afford to let any and every random and stray concept lodge there.

Through his unfolding understanding, one sees that evil, or error, is supposititious belief entertained in consciousness. Science reveals that since each individual is a state of conscious thought, he is at all times aware either of Truth or of error. Continual consciousness of Truth naturally brings peace, harmony, and happiness. Consciousness of error, on the other hand, is expressed in discord and inharmony. Christian Science gives one the ability to recognize and separate these mental states, to know the reality of good and, conversely, the unreality of evil; and with that separation of the tares and wheat one learns to demonstrate spiritual control and dominion.
