The Flame Against the Flame

The flame is referred to figuratively in a number of places in the Bible. It also appears as a physical evidence of considerable significance in other instances. What is its spiritual implication in this age?

Christian Science teaches that every spiritual idea has its material counterfeit, that is, to the human senses, for, to spiritual sense, all is spiritual. The negative sense of flame is used when referring to the self-destructive elements of error. Where these elements appear, they do so only to destroy themselves—the illusion of their being real. They would not appear were it sufficiently understood that they are testifying to the supposed absence of the flames of Truth, which are present in the same place and at the same moment.
