Oneness with Deity

The perfect panacea for the many ills which beset human existence is the acceptance and utilization of the spiritual facts of being as found in the teachings of Christian Science. Perhaps no thought is more heartening to those harassed by arguments of discouragement, sickness, and poverty than the message of freedom proclaimed in these teachings that, because God is immune from error of every sort, this includes also the immunity of man, His image and likeness. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 465) Mary Baker Eddy tells us that "Principle and its idea is one." Again, in the same work (p. 476) she states, "In divine Science, God and the real man are inseparable as divine Principle and idea."

No one would dare to imply that God, the omnipotent, is subject to fear, lack, discord, disease. With the Bible as our authority, we can certainly disclaim anything unlike Deity. In the first chapter of Genesis, in which is set forth the record of the perfect spiritual creation, we read, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him."
