Questions and Answers

From the June 1885 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 45:21-46:9 and Mis 56:25-59:10

Your question implies that Spirit, which first created the universe and man spiritually, created these over again materially, and by the aid of man all was made which He had made.
