The simplicity of man's oneness with God

In one of his letters to the Christian church at Corinth, the Apostle Paul warned his brethren to keep alert—not to be deceived and "corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." II Cor. 11:3.

The Christ is uncomplicated. Jesus proved it. And understanding the straightforward truth of man's oneness with God—the divine sonship that is man's natural birthright—can liberate us from the complexities and confusion in human experience.

The tangle of conflicting opinions, motives, beliefs, and unsatisfying life styles common today primarily results from a dualistic view of reality. Mankind generally believe in a present actuality of both good and evil, truth and error, life and death, the spiritual and the material. This is dualism—a mistaken concept that reality comprises opposites, that God creates or allows a negative for every positive. But Spirit does not form matter; Life does not author a termination to being; divine Truth never intermingles with falsehood.
