Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
4 - - Christian Science versus Spiritualism
Certain erroneous postulates should be here considered
in order that the spiritual facts may be better
The first erroneous postulate of belief is, that substance,
life, and intelligence are something apart from God.
The second erroneous postulate is, that man is both
mental and material.
The third erroneous postulate is, that mind is both evil
and good; whereas the real Mind cannot be evil nor the
medium of evil, for Mind is God.
The fourth erroneous postulate is, that matter is intelligent,
and that man has a material body which is part
The fifth erroneous postulate is, that matter holds in
itself the issues of life and death, - that matter is not
only capable of experiencing pleasure and pain, but also
capable of imparting these sensations. From the illusion
implied in this last postulate arises the decomposition of
mortal bodies in what is termed death.
Mind is not an entity within the cranium with the power
of sinning now and forever.
