Truth and fake news

Recent world events have brought the problem of fake news—information that is misleading or false but designed to be taken as truth—to the fore.

There’s another kind of fake news that for too long has gotten away with being seen as credible—“news” coming to us daily through the physical senses, including the news about our own health. My study of Christian Science has revealed a deeper, more spiritual way to discern truth. Monitor founder Mary Baker Eddy wrote this about the way in which Christ Jesus saw the world: “Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God’s own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, pp. 476–477).
