From the December 1957 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In the legal process of deciding civic issues by ballot, the term "majority" is employed to indicate the group or party whose votes predominate, while "minority" is applied to the opposing side with the least number of votes. As used in Christian Science, however, the word "majority" has a higher, spiritual significance, an understanding of which enables the student to cast out error.

The allness, eternality, infinitude, and absolute supremacy of God, good, constitute the deific majority in divine Science, a majority which is unopposed. The term "minority" is therefore obsolete in divine Science, inasmuch as nothing exists outside of God, infinite Life, Truth, and Love. Any evidence that an opposing force named evil offers resistance to God is entirely false, a baseless illusion without actuality.

Regardless of how formidable error appears, no matter what lie it brazenly presents for acceptance, one can always know that in reality God, good, forever constitutes the supreme, all-powerful majority and that He endows man with understanding and power.
