Simplicity: Shallow or Profound?

The teachings of Christian Science are simple enough to be grasped by little children and profound enough to appeal to great intellect. Simplicity and profundity are complementary, not contradictory, terms.

Statements of abstract metaphysics will never awaken mortal mind out of its dream of life, substance, and intelligence in matter. But direct, simply stated divine ideas admitted to human consciousness irresistibly dispel the evidence of material sense and establish the harmony of being.

In reality, divine Love is ever communicating itself to its creation through Christ, Truth. Its message is both simple and sublime, profound and powerful. Love speaks of the allness and oneness of God, Spirit, and of man's relationship to Him as His inseparable spiritual idea. It declares Soul's governing law of perfection and purity, which impels intelligent, loving response from its creation. Divine Love is Life, whole and indestructible, and defines health as forever permanent. It doesn't allow evil, discord, disease, or death; for, unknown to Mind, these are unknowable, unsubstantial, unreal.
