No longer thinking in matter

From the November 12, 1984 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Why does Christian Science discuss the nature of matter when as religion its primary focus is on God, Spirit, and Christian living? Because the extent of one's trust in matter, in material life and all its circumstances, limits one's understanding of God. Christian Science teaches that it is actually possible to discover God as the entire Life and substance of man, to get some sense of matter as nothing more than an image of human thought, and to prove this, at least in part, through Christian healing.
