    meaning help

    Hi teachers,
    I do not understand the meaning of 'it is so used as to delay us on our way' in the following sentence:

    Matter is an expression of the Divine just as much as spirit; both are one in Him - two sides of Him. Matter often operates to hinder us in our progress, but only when it is so used as to delay us on our way; as well might a man who happens to cut himself with a knife say that knives are evil things.
    Could you explain it or write it in another way for me.
    And please correct my sentence I made my question so next time I can make it right.
    Thank you so much.

    Matter only hinders us when it stops us from progressing spirtually.
