Holding in Thought the Perfect Model

There are two great truths which, probably more than anything else, serve to guide human thought aright. The first is that the real man is the image and likeness of God, perfect Mind; the second, that this can be proved or demonstrated by mankind.

What is the situation as it pertains to men? It is that, believing in the reality of sin, disease, and death, they are prone to suffer; that they are frequently perplexed; that they are often sad and weary; that many times they are far from physically harmonious. Men hold an imperfect model in thought—an erroneous concept of man—and the result shows itself in imperfect, troubled lives. This is acknowledged by every thinking person. Indeed, it is established by the fact that a perpetual effort is going on, on the part of mankind, to find a way whereby it will become healthier and happier.
