Emanation, Not Organism

If man were evolved, through material forces, from some primitive form of lifeless substance, it would be useless for one to try to heal a physical condition of the body by declaring that man is spiritual. But such a declaration is not useless. It heals. From this we can only conclude that man is actually not an organism evolved from matter, but an idea emanating from Mind.

Christian Science heals on the basis of this truth. It is the truth of Mind as God and of man as God's perfect creation. It overcomes discords in the material body and in all of human experience. Discords vanish when man is understood to be the emanation of Mind. They vanish because the material sense of manhood in which discords appear is untrue. It is an illusion.
