The Efficacy of the Resurrection

"What is it that seems a stone between us and the resurrection morning? It is the belief of mind in matter. We can only come into the spiritual resurrection by quitting the old consciousness of Soul in sense." Thus writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 179 of "Miscellaneous Writings."

The resurrection of Christ Jesus should afford us immeasurable advantages now, else our profession of Christianity is not very practical. We all, as Christians, would doubtless claim that we are not content to allow, figuratively speaking, a stone to separate us from those advantages; so it is highly proper to emphasize the point that the only way by which we can prevent such separation is "by quitting the old consciousness of Soul in sense," which means that the inclinations of human nature must be systematically controlled and overcome if we are to obtain any permanent and practical spiritual gain from that transition.
