Not good = not real

For the Lesson titled “Unreality” from March 31 - April 6, 2014

Here’s a simple touchstone to test the reality or unreality of everything that appears in our experience: “Everything good or worthy, God made. Whatever is valueless or baneful, He did not make,—hence its unreality” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 525, citation 1). How wonderful! If it’s good, it’s real. If it’s not good, it’s not real.

This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson, titled “Unreality,” alerts us in every section not to be deceived—not to turn from this healing truth. But is it too simplistic to say everything that isn’t good isn’t real? What about global crises, tyrannical governments, even individual challenges of pain, incurability, despair? The Lesson has some answers!
