WHY FEAR A MIRAGE?

Would we sit staring defeatedly at a mirage of water apparently obstructing our path? Not if we knew it was a mirage, for if we knew very well the terrain over which we were traveling, we could not be fooled or misled by a mirage. We would not timorously pray for it to go away, cautiously taking each step toward it with eyes fastened fearfully upon the illusion; but knowing the true condition of the terrain, we would confidently pursue our way in conscious safety. But are we doing this in the practice of Christian Science?

Christian Science, which is based upon Principle, God, sets forth the law of God and is the means by which we can distinguish the truth from the mirage—the real from the unreal. Taking the Bible as its authority, this Science expounds the relationship of God and man as stated in the first chapter of Genesis: "God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." And farther on, to signify the nature of all creation, the account reads, "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."
