THE GREAT OFFICE OF CHRIST, TRUTH

In her article "Science and Philosophy" Mary Baker Eddy says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 366), "To destroy sin and its sequence, is the office of Christ, Truth,—according to His mode of Christian Science; and this is being done daily." Today, through Christian Science, Christ. Truth, is fulfilling its universal office in the daily destruction of evil by revealing man's spiritual sonship with God. Receptive ones everywhere find the Christ bringing their own immortality to light, revealing God's allness and man's true selfhood as His perfect expression, whose being is entirely in and of Spirit. Healing follows. For to the degree that the truth of this spiritual idea of existence, or divine sonship, unfolds in individual consciousness, the unreality of all material-mindedness, with its sequence of disease and death, is exposed and destroyed.

As the revelation through which the healing efficacy of the Christ, Truth, has been made available today, Christian Science is subject to the same general misunderstanding that surrounded the Master during his ministry. Most of this can be traced to our false educational systems, which tend to surround with an air of mystery and supernaturalism the healing of physical diseases by spiritually mental means. In reality, however, true spiritual healing is no more mysterious or supernatural than the correction of a numerical mistake. As a matter of fact, numerical mistakes and physical disorders are both negations; they both come as a result of wrong thinking; and they both disappear with the discernment of the truth.
