THE FADING MYTH OF MATTER

The human race has for centuries been taught that only the things cognized through the five physical senses are real, substantial, and tangible, and so has come to believe in and to be seemingly enslaved by the myth of matter. Spiritual concepts are considered by this myth to be intangible, spectral, unreal. The myth further claims that man and the universe are constituted of and controlled by matter; that there is such a thing as intelligent matter; that matter is causative, a creator; that matter can destroy what it creates; that its conditions, once established, can be altered only by the intervention of other matter; and that man must inevitably succumb by a law of matter to the last enemy, death.

The Bible is regarded by most Christian people as the veritable chart of life. And in the very first chapter of Genesis we find an account of the creation of man and the universe that is diametrically opposed to this myth of matter. It is a record of spiritual creation by the one perfect, infinite, omnipotent God, Spirit, who created the universe spiritually, with no material encumberment, and created man in His own image and likeness—deathless, spiritual, perfect as Himself. The Scriptural record here affirms that this great spiritual creation was finished and complete.
