GAINING THE RIGHT STANDPOINT

[Original article in German]

"Delusion, sin, disease, and death arise from the false testimony of material sense, which, from a supposed standpoint outside the focal distance of infinite Spirit, presents an inverted image of Mind and substance with everything turned upside down." So writes Mary Baker Eddy in the Christian science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 301). Thus our Leader declares that the material senses so invert the facts of being that they perceive materiality instead of spirituality, imperfection instead of perfection, multiplicity instead of oneness, and inharmony instead of harmony.

The divinely inspired teaching of Christian Science points out the way to deliverance from all the evils of mortal existence. It reveals the truth concerning God and man created in His image and leads the seeker to the recognition of his identity as this ideal man, whereby he achieves harmony, perfection, and dominion. To reach this goal and attain our true spiritual selfhood we must reverse the mortal beliefs of man and the universe and learn to understand and perceive the true creation, based on the unity and allness of Spirit. Christian Science teaches us how to do this and enables us to give up the false viewpoint, "outside the focal distance of infinite Spirit," and regain that liberating standpoint on the side of God, Spirit.
