The Correct View

On pages 476 and 477 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy writes: "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick." What is this correct view which Christian Science alone can reveal? It must be wholly spiritual, entirely separate from false material sense. This spiritually correct view can present man only as God sees him; man in God's image and likeness, spiritual, perfect, whole, complete, always receiving, assimilating, and radiating truth; with boundless freedom; with continuous, harmonious, fruitful activity; with universal, unselfish love; conscious only of the desire to glorify God and to heal, to bless, to uplift, comfort, and encourage his brother-man.

This correct view of man was the only view Jesus, our Way-shower, ever entertained. He saw as real only the things of God—perfection, purity, love, kindness, compassion, contentment, unselfishness, It was his correct view of the spotless purity of man, in the image and likeness of God, which enabled sinners who came to him for healing to catch such a clear glimpse of that truth that they lost all desire to sin, and so were cleansed and healed.
