"THE TRUE STATUS OF MAN"

If it were not true that man is now the immortal idea of God, hence spiritually whole, all the striving mankind could do would not make this so. Man has no choice but to be what he divinely is, God's idea, the embodiment of good and good alone. Can the ray of the sun be unlike the sun? Has the sun's ray a choice of reflecting light or darkness? Certainly not, and neither can man's immortal status be other than wholly Godlike, spiritual, here and now.

Mary Baker Eddy tells us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 475), "Man is incapable of sin, sickness, and death." God, of course, never sins, sickens, or dies. How then, could man, the expression of God, sin, sicken, or die? Indeed he could not and does not.
