Seeing God's Creation

We read in the Bible, "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Gen. 1:31; Through the study of Christian Science one learns that what God sees is His own idea, the spiritual universe, including man. This view of God's creation needs no human accompaniments to express it and no material beliefs to get a better conception of it. It is a view of all creation as God's pure reflection of Himself.

The mortal view of creation is apparent only to the material senses. Christian Science reveals to human consciousness a spiritual view of creation, the eternal truth of man and the universe, which lies beyond the temporary veil of matter.

Students of Christian Science consider human experiences as object lessons and endeavor to see through these lessons to the divine idea—the spiritual order and perfection of God's creation, forever unfolding in consciousness as the evidence of harmonious, eternal Life. One's standpoint of viewing creation determines his viewpoint of all that appears to him to exist. What appears to spiritual sense is entirely spiritual. What appears to material sense, the offspring of mortality and the opposite of spiritual sense, is entirely material and temporal.
