Questions and Answers

If God created man spiritual, the image and likeness of Himself, who made man's body? Did mortal mind make it so perfect and beautiful?—J. C. L.

The mortal conception of perfection and beauty is but a poor counterfeit of that beauty and perfection which are eternal. The material sense of body must give place to the true sense, which is spiritual. This does not rob man of his individuality; rather does it reveal his true identity as a child of God.

Perfection and beauty are qualities of Mind. They do not belong to matter even though mortal mind does declare they are material. The human conception of beauty and loveliness will greatly increase as it is understood that man's life is in Mind and not in a material body.
