"Spiritual discernment," a frequently used term in Christian Science, has to do with perceiving what we know to be true in our experience, as opposed to believing only what we see or hear.
It has to do with the nature of Life as God, Soul or Spirit, and understanding its full representation—the real man and the real universe. This spiritual seeing enables us to perceive the radiance of Soul in all its glory, majesty, and might, as opposed to the physical evidence of matter or mortality.
Such discrimination is of great importance to anyone desiring to heal successfully without material aids, for it reveals man's substance, intelligence, and life to be in Spirit, Mind, rather than in matter. Greater spirituality enables us to pray more effectively about the challenging problems of today's world.
