CHRISTIAN SCIENCE PROVES INHARMONY UNREAL

[Original article in German]

No one who believes in God will doubt that He is perfect, but there is only a slow recognition of the scientific fact that man and everything created by God must reflect His perfection. The world and its material theories contradict this fact. However, these theories rest upon material sense testimony, and they therefore have no validity.

The fundamental truth of Christian Science that God is the only creator and divine Principle of all being is the basis from which the Christian Scientist classifies material sense testimony as deceptive and therefore unreal. God is All-in-all. He is perfect. Thus perfection constitutes allness. Where, then, is there room for imperfection and inharmony? Perfect being, created by Mind, has no more contact with evil or matter than light has with darkness. But as light swallows up darkness, so Truth extinguishes error. Error flees before Truth, and with it go all its phenomena of inharmony. Since inharmony is of the devil, the Scriptural admonition can be applied to it (James 4:7), "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." It is the devil, error, that should flee!
