WHAT IS OUR GOAL?

Spiritual sense, conscious only of that which is spiritual and therefore perfect, incomparable, harmonious, and divine, knows no degrees of comparison, but understands the nothingness of everything which has a material basis, for it acknowledges only one substance, the perfect substance of Spirit. Speaking of God, the Father, Christ Jesus said (Matt. 5:45), "He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." Why? Because to Spirit and spiritual sense there is only one substance, one infinite perfection, comparable with nothing else.

Mary Baker Eddy tells us in her work "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 102): "God is like Himself and like nothing else. He is universal and primitive. His character admits of no degrees of comparison." Therefore man. His reflection, is incomparably perfect. This being so, whenever we find ourselves indulging in comparisons, we may be sure that we are not working from the absolute standpoint of spiritual perfection, but are reasoning humanly from the false sense of both good and evil as substance.
