"Love's great legacy to mortals"

It a great joy to men when they first learn that man. God's likeness, is not mortal but immortal, and as such cannot inherit sickness disease, deformity, or any criminal instincts. Such beliefs are phases of the Adam-dream, and a dream is something from which one always awakens. In proportion as the sense dream vanishes, a mortal is lifted into the consciousness of true manhood in the realm of eternal Love.

If our heavenly Father does not send sin, sickness, or death, what does He bestow? The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, has revealed to us one of His grandest gifts. She says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 124): "The last act of the tragedy on Calvary rent the veil of matter, and unveiled Love's great legacy to mortals; Love forgiving its enemies. This grand act crowned and still crowns Christianity: it manumits mortals: it translates love; it gives to suffering, inspiration; to patience, experience; to experience, hone; to hope, faith; to faith, understanding; and to understanding. Love triumphant!"
