Christian Science Bible Lessons
- Section 3 -
As human thought changes from one stage to another of conscious
pain and painlessness, sorrow and joy, - from fear to hope and
from faith to understanding, - the visible manifestation will at
last be man governed by Soul, not by material sense.
295:5-24 Chapter 10: Science of Being
(Mortals unlike immortals)
God creates and governs the universe, including man. The
universe is filled with spiritual ideas, which He evolves, and
they are obedient to the Mind that makes them. Mortal mind would
transform the spiritual into the material, and then recover man's
original self in order to escape from the mortality of this error.
Mortals are not like immortals, created in God's own image; but
infinite Spirit being all, mortal consciousness will at last yield
to the scientific fact and disappear, and the real sense of being,
perfect and forever intact, will appear.
The manifestation of God through mortals is as light passing
through the window-pane. The light and the glass never mingle,
but as matter, the glass is less opaque than the walls. The
mortal mind through which Truth appears most vividly is that one
which has lost much materiality - much error - in order to become
a better transparency for Truth. Then, like a cloud melting into
thin vapor, it no longer hides the sun.
275:10-12 Chapter 10: Science of Being
To grasp the reality and order of being in its Science, you must
begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle of all that really
483:13-19 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

of spiritual existence and creation.
(Terms adopted by the author)
After the author's sacred discovery, she affixed the name
"Science" to Christianity, the name "error" to corporeal sense,
and the name "substance" to Mind. Science has called the world to
battle over this issue and its demonstration, which heals the sick,
destroys error, and reveals the universal harmony.
