What is Christian Metaphysics? Part 2


As stated before Christian Science metaphysics is the healing and redemptive system discovered by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in studying and following the teachings of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Master. It is based on the understanding of the allness of God, good, and the nothingness of evil. It is the startling revelation that matter and evil do not really exist at all but only seem to be.


Based on this spiritual understanding, the Christian Science healer, in treating disease, begins

with God and not with the problem. He or she does not treat disease as if it were real, but

denies it any reality and power and realizes the all power and presence of God, good. The

Scientist knows that disease is no part of God’s creation, but is an erroneous belief of mortal

thinking with no basis in truth. In other words, it is a lie about God and man in His image.


Hence, we are taught in Christian Science to lift our thought to God by exchanging false

beliefs for the spiritual truth that destroys them. From this spiritual standpoint, we know the truth

that God knows, and the truth sets us free: the truth of God’s infinite goodness and mercy, and

love for us.


Since fear is an element of all diseases, we are taught to handle it first. We know that God did

not give us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind, and we know

that perfect love casts out all fear, as the Scriptures say.


Then we realize our unity with God and abide in His love by keeping His Word. In so doing, we cast out disease and bear witness to God’s infinite power and presence, His loving- kindness and tender mercy.
