RISE ABOVE MATERIAL SENSE

Unless you have made a careful study of Christian Science, the injunction to rise above material sense may seem to present a major problem. You may aver: "I sometimes encounter a tenacious tendency to dwell upon myself as definitely material and consequently subject to the many difficulties that beset mankind. When I resist these suggestions with the statement that in reality God is my creator, hence I am perfect, evil retorts, 'You may have been perfect at one time and you may be gradually regaining perfection, but most assuredly you are far from perfect now." Such fallacious suggestions of the carnal mind must be vigorously denounced.

Mary Baker Eddy, to whom we are unboundedly grateful for giving us a sound basis by means of which we may successfully cope with erroneous suggestions and inharmonies of every sort, writes in "Unity of Good" (p. 11), "Jesus taught us to walk over, not into or with, the currents of matter, or mortal mind."
