PRE-EXISTENCE AND UNCHANGING IDENTITY

In one of her wonderfully enlightening Bible lessons in "Miscellaneous Writings," Mary Baker Eddy makes the arresting statement (p.181), "Mortals will lose their sense of mortality—disease, sickness, sin, and death—in the proportion that they gain the sense of man's spiritual preexistence as God's child; as the offspring of good, and not of God's opposite,— evil, or a fallen man."

How shall we gain this realization of man's spiritual Pre-existence? The study of the Bible and of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and other writings by Mrs. Eddy reveals the facts of true spiritual identity. Christian Science teaches that man's identity, his real being, is the reflection of Spirit, and therefore wholly spiritual, and that his existence as the child of God, who has existed with his Father-Mother God "from the foundation of the world," is eternal. Through this Science of Christianity one learns how to put off the old man and replace him with the new man, the man created in God's own image and likeness.
