Chapter 14 - - Recapitulation 


 Question 19. - Is materiality the concomitant of spirituality, and is material sense a necessary preliminary to the understanding and expression of Spirit?



Adam: An inverted image of Spirit.

Lesson topic: ADAM AND FALLEN MAN

Answer. -

(Error only ephemeral)

If error is necessary to define or to reveal Truth, the answer is yes; but not otherwise. Material sense is an absurd phrase, for matter has no sensation. Science declares that Mind, not matter, sees, hears, feels, speaks. Whatever contradicts this statement is the false sense, which ever betrays mortals into sickness, sin, and death. If the unimportant and evil appear, only soon to disappear because of their uselessness or their iniquity, then these ephemeral views of error ought to be obliterated by Truth. Why malign Christian Science for instructing mortals how to make sin, disease, and death appear more and more unreal?
