One Mind Only

[Original article in German]

In the practice of Christian Science innumerable problems are presented for solution, and at times some of them may appear difficult or almost impossible to solve. It is our task to maintain unflinchingly the essential unity of God and His idea and to recognize every deviation from the ideal as unreal and insubstantial. Only in this way do we find the metaphysical solution of the problems.

In Genesis we read, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." We have, then, to do with the spiritual idea, man, forever perfect and undergoing no change, since God, the creator of this ideal man, is invariable good and eternally preserves man's perfection. It must also be clear to us that the perfection which man expresses is his eternal state of being. Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 200): "The great truth in the Science of being, that the real man was, is, and ever shall be perfect, is incontrovertible; for if man is the image, reflection, of God, he is neither inverted nor subverted, but upright and Godlike;" and: "The great spiritual fact must be brought out that man is, not shall be, perfect and immortal" (ibid., p. 428). In our demonstration of Christian Science, God and the real man are our starting point.
