THE GREAT DELUSION

One cannot fail to be impressed by the spiritual insight which enabled Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, to recognize that material existence in all its phases is unreal, a state of self-deception to those who accept it, and not the reality of being. To face the human insistence on evil's reality indeed demands courage, but this is the stand that Christian Scientists take. We not only declare but know evil to be unreal, a fraudulent deception imposed upon the race.

It is a curious perversion of mortal mind that when Christian Science declares that there is no disease and no death, there are those who appear to resent and challenge these statements; and yet it may be asked: Should one not be grateful to have disease and death proved unreal and forever destroyed? Is not this what the human race is desperately trying to do—get rid of the whole illegitimate and outrageous imposition? Who, it might be asked, would willingly and knowingly become the devil's advocate? Who can intelligently defend and support evil's reality?
