God's Glorious Man

God's man—and there is no other real man—is entirely and eternally spiritual. His life, individuality, identity, and completeness are forever established in the one and only Mind. Man is the living, conscious reflection or expression of Mind, and is as perfect as his creator, Mind, for man fully represents Mind.

God, divine Mind, is the only creator. Man and the universe is His creation. Man is the fulfillment of God's will. He is forever obedient to and at one with Truth, because he is the image and likeness of God, Truth. Truth, being infinite, knows no exception to, no deviation from, and no cessation of itself. It is changeless and permanent, and fills all space. Its nature is constructive, protective, infinitely loving; and, being ever present, it meets every human need.

The personal sense of or false concept of man is not the truth about man. All the error ever humanly believed has never touched, influenced, or altered the real man in the smallest degree, for only that which emanates from Truth is true. God's man is eternally care-free, fear-free, error-free. He possesses, by reflection, eternal freshness and vigor, peace and plenty, wholeness, heavenly harmony, and supreme bliss. He reflects God's ability, infallibility, and reliability. He is wholly and eternally immune from error of any and every kind. Our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, says (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 294), "Man's genuine selfhood is recognizable only in what is good and true."
