Man Knows

In the utterance of Job, "Oh that I knew where I might find him," a common longing of the human heart is expressed. The bewildering experiences which accompany the human sense of life often seem to obscure the dominion bestowed on man in God's likeness, and frequently there may be the pitiful lament, Oh, that I might know the actual meaning of life, whence I came and whither I must go. Christian Science, holding out a comforting hand, says, You have a right to know and understand the truth of being. Furthermore, it declares and proves that man is divinely equipped with spiritual understanding, clear vision, and unlimited capacity for right accomplishment. Consecrated students of Christian Science in ever increasing number are daily demonstrating this freedom, dominion, and assurance, as an inevitable result of actually knowing and utilizing the truth.

On page 250 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy has written: "Spirit is the Ego which never dreams, but understands all things; which never errs, and is ever conscious; which never believes, but knows; which is never born and never dies. Spiritual man is the likeness of this Ego." Pondering these words, we see man as never dreaming, but understanding all things; never erring and forever conscious; never believing, but knowing. What a heritage—man the expression of God, witnessing to His presence, power, and wisdom! Man at one with, inseparable from, the all-knowing Mind, which is God! We find further assurance in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 183): "Man is God's image and likeness; whatever is possible to God, is possible to man as God's reflection."
