Acceptance of the truth of the infinitude, perfection, and completeness of one divine creation eliminates sickness, sin, and death, for it evidences obedience to the First Commandment, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me" (Ex. 20:3). It was to bring the comprehension of this fact to humanity that Christ Jesus' ministry was given to mankind. It was for this purpose that Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, overcame every adverse circumstance in order to give her revelation of divine Truth to the world. Even a glimpse of the vast inclusiveness and perfection of God's creation brings improved beliefs in our human experience. The absolute realization of the truths of being will bring full release from material limitations.

Completeness is a quality of all that God creates. He does not do things partially. The Bible tells us (Eccl. 3:14), "I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it." And the account of spiritual creation declares (Gen. 2:1), "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them." To be finished means to be entire and perfect. "Nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it."

Christian Science teaches that men must cease to consider themselves creators, for as we read in Psalms (24:1), "The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein." The application of the spiritual truths of the Bible, as illumined by Christian Science, unfolds to one the spiritual universe and one's spiritual individuality. Thus the erroneous concepts are eliminated from experience because Truth reveals that these concepts were never made by God and therefore have no real existence.
