The Supposed Realm
In the language of Christian Science we hear much about the suppositional nature of evil, matter, sin, sickness, death. This is often perplexing to the new student of Science who is accustomed to believing in the actuality of evil and of everything his senses cognize. But once he acknowledges that Spirit, God, is the only creator and that evil and matter possess no element of Spirit, he is willing to concede that the material sense of creation is a supposition, the very opposite of the realm of Spirit, named by Christ Jesus the kingdom of God.
A supposition is something supposed to be—a fable, a myth, an illusion, which has no actual existence. Then one might say that if there were an opposite of Spirit —suppose there were such an opposite—it would make the universe material and man physical, with everything and everybody subject to limitation and dissolution. If there were an opposite of divine Mind, which is immortal, that mind would be mortal, and everything it produced would be subject to death. But a supposition is only a conjecture. It has no more substance or reality than a dream.
