The continual demand to deny matter

From the March 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Christian Science elucidates Christ Jesus' victory over the entrenched belief in matter and material law. He proved that spiritual substance is the preeminent, total reality. His resurrection exposed the mythical and illusory nature of matter, including mortality. Christian Science likewise denies matter's claim to reality with the revealed fact that God, Spirit, is omnipresent.

Today the demand to see through and beyond matter remains an important and necessary rule at every stage of our demonstration for both individual progress and the universal salvation of the race.

Some may consider this demand questionable, unreasonable, or impossible. Even the more experienced student of Christian Science may be subtly tempted to imagine that it's unnecessary. But if we are to emulate the works of the Master, Christ Jesus, matter must be thoroughly denied, and the allness of Spirit understood and affirmed. And if we don't follow Christ in this way, we may put the healing results of our spiritual labors in jeopardy.
