True idea of man 337
XXVII. The true idea of man, as the
reflection of the invisible God, is as incomprehensible to the limited
senses as is man's infinite Principle. The visible universe and material
man are the poor counterfeits of the invisible universe and spiritual man.
Eternal things (verities) are God's thoughts as they exist in the
spiritual realm of the real. Temporal things are the thoughts of mortals
and are the unreal, being the opposite of the real or the spiritual and
mind - sin;
Truth demonstrated 337
XXVIII. Subject sickness, sin, and death to
the rule of health and holiness in Christian Science, and you ascertain
that this Science is demonstrably true, for it heals the sick and sinning
as no other system can. Christian Science, rightly understood, leads to
eternal harmony. It brings to light the only living and true God and man
as made in His likeness; whereas the opposite belief - that man originates
in matter and has beginning and end, that he is both soul and body, both
good and evil, both spiritual and material - terminates in discord and
mortality, in the error which must be destroyed by Truth. The mortality of
material man proves that error has been ingrafted into the premises and
conclusions of material and mortal humanity.
