There is not a line in any of Mrs. Eddy's writings which in any manner denies God's word, a fact apparent to anyone who, with an open mind, reads any of her works, even though they might not be ready to agree with all of her conclusions. Christian Science honors God and God's word to a greater extent probably than does any other religion.

Christian Science teaches that the man formed of the dust of the ground by the Lord God Jehovah, as recorded in the second chapter of Genesis, is not the child of God, and for this teaching it has the absolute statement to that effect in the Bible itself. In Romans 9:8 we read, "They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God." Texts of like tenor occur all through the Scriptures and are undeniable proof of the truth of the Christian Science teaching. Neither does the Bible say that this dust man, mortal man, or flesh man, is the image and likeness of God. God is Spirit, and the image and likeness of Him must be spiritual and not material. The spiritual creation in the first chapter of Genesis, where man is made in the image and likeness of God, is finished, and the Bible declares that nothing shall be added to it nor anything taken from it.
