Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
15 - - Genesis
Genesis iii. 4, 5. And the serpent said unto the woman,
Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day
ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened; and ye shall
be as gods, knowing good and evil.
This myth represents error as always asserting its superiority
over truth, giving the lie to divine Science and
saying, through the material senses: "I can
open your eyes. I can do what God has not
done for you. Bow down to me and have another god.
Only admit that I am real, that sin and sense are more
pleasant to the eyes than spiritual Life, more to be desired
than Truth, and I shall know you, and you will be
mine." Thus Spirit and flesh war.
