In replying to the queries propounded by Dr. W. E. Allaman, it is necessary for any student to distinguish in Christian Science whether a given statement refers to the spiritual or the material. This is true in the study of the teachings of Christ Jesus, and as Christian Science is founded upon the Bible, it is necessary to understand the view-point from which a given statement is made.
When John the Baptist declared that Jesus would baptize "with the Holy Ghost, and with fire," we believe that most Bible students will admit that the word "fire" should not be given a literal interpretation, but refers to spiritual truth found in the teachings of the great Master, which would burn up or destroy all sin. Jesus said, "Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you." To take this statement in a literal sense would be impossible, but in its spiritual sense it is beautiful and grand.
When Mrs. Eddy says (Science and Health, p. 475), "Man is incapable of sin, sickness, and death," she does not refer to a man of flesh, blood, bones, brain, and nerves. She refers to the man spoken of in the first chapter of the Bible: "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." There is a vast difference between this man and a man of dust or flesh.
