Purifying Our Concept of Man

The upheaval so evident in the world today points to the great need on the part of mankind for a better and purer concept of existence and of everything touching our experience. According to personal sense, one lives in a material world of constantly changing conditions and believes himself to be subject to variable law, imperfection, deterioration, and death. But personal sense can never supply us with the truth of being, since it is itself unreal—a mirage, making life appear to be where life is not.

The disciples learned of the supposititious nature of mortal existence and the paramount necessity for a higher understanding of God and His idea, man, so wonderfully revealed in the life of Christ Jesus, the Way-shower. Jesus tested his disciples' understanding on this most important point when he asked them, "Whom say ye that I am?" Peter's answer, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God," Jesus approved by saying, "Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven."
