Surrendering to God

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has written that the most divine of all human experience is that of repentance. She writes in her Message to The Mother Church for 1900 (p. 15), "The Passover, spiritually discerned, is a wonderful passage over a tear-filled sea of repentance—which of all human experience is the most divine."

Repentance is often associated with extreme forms of sin, whereas everything that is not spiritual is a form of sin. Accordingly, are we not sinning while we consider existence as material, and ourselves as living in matter? A wrong view of existence includes more than actual sinful omissions or commissions. A habitual sense of being independent of Deity, with a will and an existence of our own, is a sin which all mortals need to repent of in greater or lesser degree.
