THE PROPHET AND HIS PROPHECY

A True prophet is one of mankind's greatest benefactors. He not only discerns the spiritual facts of being, but by means of his spiritual discernment he overcomes the material lies of existence, such as sickness, sin, and limitation. On page 593 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy defines "prophet" as, "A spiritual seer; disappearance of material sense before the conscious facts of spiritual Truth."

By including in her definition of prophet the results of spiritual seeing—namely, the "disappearance of material sense before the conscious facts of spiritual Truth"— Mrs. Eddy emphasizes the fact that the perception of the spiritual truths of being and the demonstration of them go hand in hand. Paul's words to the Romans (8:6), "To be spiritually minded is life and peace," set forth the axiom that spiritually to perceive Truth is to be able to demonstrate the truth in resolving human problems.
