Beside Still Waters

To the query of the centuries, "What is man?" we are confronted with many and varied answers. Throughout the ages mankind has seemed satisfied to accept as final the Old Testament version given in Psalms 103:15, 16: "As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more."

Christian Scientists are grateful that their Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, did not accept this dolorous view of man. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 471) she writes, "Man is, and forever has been, God's reflection."
