"The eternal verities of Spirit"

From the August 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mrs. Eddy was asked, "Is Christian Science based on the facts of both Spirit and matter?" She answered, "Christian Science is based on the facts of Spirit and its forms and representations, but these facts are the direct antipodes of the so-called facts of matter; and the eternal verities of Spirit assert themselves over their opposite, or matter, in the final destruction of all that is unlike Spirit."Miscellaneous Writings, p. 55;

Spiritual verities constitute the reality and power of Spirit's all-inclusiveness. As we apply them to the human scene, the so-called facts of matter—the erroneous conditions of material existence and even material existence itself—are proved, step by step, to be pure delusions. The self-enforcing elements of Mind's impartations must eventually annihilate every suppositional claim of matter.

Mrs. Eddy writes: "Every material belief hints the existence of spiritual reality; and if mortals are instructed in spiritual things, it will be seen that material belief, in all its manifestations, reversed, will be found the type and representative of verities priceless, eternal, and just at hand."pp. 60, 61;
