How Truth Routs Error

There are metaphysical truths by which we can dispose of errors of every kind. These truths come from Truth, God. Truth has the energy and resistless will to show itself. It alone can affirm itself. Whatever is not of Truth cannot. That which is of Truth is true and spiritual. And there is nothing else.

Admitting there is something else than Truth and its effects is what brings about our problems, and those of mankind in general. This admission itself is an error. Metaphysically it's a nonevent, for there is no actual admitter of error in the infinitude of Truth. Error, Truth's opponent, would argue that it is self-generating. This would be a paradox, for it has no genuine self. Error's would-be contradictions of Truth are error's destruction. To see this is to be close to routing specific problems, whether domestic, physical, or social.

Corporeal, personal man—unreal, illusive, illegitimate—suffers what material consciousness seems to manifest of itself. But this whole scenario of a mortal man—constricted and often troubled— swimming through a physical span of life is misconception. The misconception only appears, and continues, to a misconceiver. The error and the erring are one in their illegitimacy and nothingness. The real, spiritual man's being is comprised of what Truth expresses of itself. Through Christian Science we can spiritually see and humanly evidence that we have no experience other than that which Truth plans.
