Christian Science and matter

Here's a point that many people find quite surprising: Christian Science denies the actual existence of matter. Taken by itself, the denial doesn't give a very accurate impression of this Science. But it is an important point to understand, especially as matter so often seems so real.

Christian Science is religion—scientific Christianity—the Science that explains God and shows us how to worship Him. Its view of matter, then, isn't based on philosophical grounds, nor is it an interpretation of discoveries in the physical sciences. It's simpler and more profound than that. The allness of God, Spirit, logically rules out the real existence of matter or of anything else that is unlike God.
