Christian Science teaches the reality of God's creation and the consequent unreality of anything that is unlike God, good. Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy states (p. 502): "There is but one creator and one creation." Also, on page 123 we read: "The verity of Mind shows conclusively how it is that matter seems to be, but is not. Divine Science, rising above physical theories, excludes matter, resolves things into thoughts, and replaces the objects of material sense with spiritual ideas." These truths brought about a healing that has been a milestone in my spiritual growth.

Several years ago a wart appeared on my hand. Soon other warts developed, including many on my toes as well. I prayed and studied in Christian Science, but the physical condition remained the same. Finally I prayed with a yearning to see what I needed to know in healing this case. It became increasingly clear to me that I needed to understand better that there is only one creation, that of God, Spirit; therefore material conditions are not real and cannot impose themselves on God's man.

The turning point came when I saw that instead of trying to explain or understand the nature of material belief, I simply needed to destroy the false belief in each instance through an understanding of God's allness, which excludes anything unlike His goodness. Each week, in studying the Bible Lesson outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly, I read with the desire to understand more fully that cause and effect are of God. Therefore creation is wholly spiritual, not material.
