Man's Identity

In human experience there are times when it is necessary to prove one's identity in order to qualify for some right. It may be the right to inherit, the right to travel in foreign lands, the right to re-enter one's own country, or the right to vote. All this has to do with personal identification as measured by human standards. But it is not the real or spiritual identity, which has nothing to do with a family name or with nationality.

To prove one's mortal identity one must give evidence of human origin, but man's real identity is the spiritual reflection of God. Actual identity is concerned only with the spiritual creation as revealed in the first chapter of Genesis, where it is stated that "God created man in his own image in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." This is the record of man's identity. Jesus accepted this fact and worked from the basis of true being, and whoever would make his teachings practical in this age must recognize identity as spiritual.
