DISPELLING THE FALSE SENSE

The world echoes with praise for the wonders which show mankind's increasing dominion over material limitations. But nothing which is being accomplished through matter approaches the wonder of spiritual healing which is brought about through Christian Science. The profound significance of this spiritual method of healing lies in the fact that the very basis of material ills is being thus overthrown. Material sense, in which all disease and limitation and sin originate, is being dispelled by the understanding that God, Spirit, is the only Mind and that man, God's likeness, dwells eternally in the spiritual sense of life.

The material sense of being, which seems so convincingly to be part of one's identity, is proved by Science to be false, an imposition. And the flesh and its suffering, which originate in that deluding sense, yield to this Science, which denies matter and asserts that man's consciousness is altogether spiritual. Mary Baker Eddy says in "Unity of Good" (pp. 42,43), "Truth, defiant of error or matter, is Science, dispelling a false sense and leading man into the true sense of selfhood and Godhood; wherein the mortal does not develop the immortal, nor the material the spiritual, but wherein true manhood and womanhood go forth in the radiance of eternal being and its perfections, unchanged and unchangeable."
