The Christian Science Monitor
It is impossible to deny that the consensus of human belief is that man is the victim of that triad of evils—sin, sickness, and death—and that nothing short of a miracle, interpreted as meaning the supernatural interposition of divine, omnipotent power, can save him. The foundation for this universal belief is no doubt the theory that man is a composite being, a spirit or soul in the body.
Now in Christian Science this theory finds no place. Man is clearly shown to be what the Bible says he is, made in God's image and likeness, that is, a spiritual being; and therefore, as a fact that can be logically and practically sustained, he is not the medium of sin and disease or the slave of evil.
It is scarcely possible to imagine the wholesome revolutionary effect this would have if it were accepted and acted upon. The picture of humanity struggling after health and happiness, and mostly failing, is not encouraging. Looked at from the purely human standpoint, it is a justification for the deepest pessimism. But that is the limited view of sense testimony, which sees things at short range, and it is entirely ignorant of the truth. We are entitled to look further to see the truth.
