Belief Has No Agent
Through Christian Science we learn that life is not what it appears to be to the five senses. Mary Baker Eddy startled the world when she announced her discovery that the mortal sense of existence with its cruel experiences is a state of belief and not the truth of being. But she proved her discovery by many healings. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" she makes this embracing statement: "From beginning to end, whatever is mortal is composed of material human beliefs and of nothing else." Science and Health, p. 478;
A world of beliefs! And every belief subject to decay and destruction! How different is the world of reality, God's world, which is spiritual and composed of eternal and perfect ideas! The material world of belief is the opposite of the world of Spirit. Christ Jesus said to a group of materially-minded opponents, "Ye are of this world; I am not of this world." John 8:23; He also said, "He that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal." 12:25;
The world of belief looks less alluring to one who comes up against its painful and murderous aggressions than it does to one who is enjoying its ephemeral pleasures. But either situation concerns beliefs, not facts, and these must be exchanged for the pure, divine conceptions of God.
