Untouched by false law

Walk Softly over the Earth

The day before he was crucified Christ Jesus said to his disciples, "I have overcome the world." John 16:33; And Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health, "Christian Science reveals a necessity for overcoming the world, the flesh, and evil, and thus destroying all error." Science and Health, p. 10;

What is it we must overcome? Is it the beauty, the gentleness and joy, the good we find in our world along with its evil? Isn't it rather the whole sense of something other than God, other than Love's omnipresence—the mortal, material thinking that is always separate from Him?

The timeless truth is that we live—each of us, always—by direct link with God. We do not really live by laws of matter. Christian Science furnishes abundant evidence that the seeming laws of matter capitulate to divine law, which is supreme. Material laws rule over us only to the degree we believe in them; they vanish as our consciousness rises to its natural altitude of reflecting God.
