“Whatever is material is mortal. To the five corporeal senses, man appears to be matter and mind united; but Christian Science reveals man as the idea of God, and declares the corporeal senses to be mortal and erring illusions.” (Science and Health, page 477)
Sense testimony does not communicate accurate information. The appearance of man as a material structure with a personal material mind inside, called brain, running things, knowing things, feeling things, does not correspond with the true spiritual testimony about man, about you and me. God is Truth and there is no other.
Christian Science unveils man as he really is, as our acute spiritual senses attest. The spiritual reality of ourselves that God is constantly announcing to us as our very being, does not argue with the material senses for a place of authority. It stands as the uncontestable truth of who we are and how we are. The material senses waver, wonder, wander, question and doubt. They have no solid voice or factual basis on which to rely.
Matter can’t be intelligent, can’t be Life, Truth, or Love. For God, Spirit, is all those things solely and exclusively. And so, the material must necessarily obey the spiritual facts, for immortality defeats mortality, infinitude defeats finiteness, and divine Love rules and conquers all.
