ST. JOHN wrote, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all," and Jesus startled humanity with the declaration, "Ye are the light of the world," while we read in Science and Health that "the Ego-man is the reflection of the Ego-God" (p.281).

Prior to Mrs. Eddy's discovery that life, intelligence, and substance do not exist in matter, the Scriptural teaching that man is God's image, that he lives, and moves, and has his being in God, must have been treated as a metaphor, or figure of speech, not as a statement of fact. Students of Christian Science, however, are confronted not only with the fact of this statement of the relation between God and man, but with the responsibility of proving that what God is, man must be, by reflection. There was never a problem more important to prove; it is our life problem.
