A basic point in Christian Science illustrated. Beholding perfect God and perfect man removes inharmony from experience

UNDERSTAND GOD'S MAN AND HEAL

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. ... So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him" (Gen. 1: 26, 27). Surely Christ Jesus represented this spiritual man of God's creating, the only man there is, the pure reflection of Spirit. Proportionately as we grow in the understanding of man's divine origin and nature, we make this true idea of man apparent in human experience and are enabled to approximate the healing works of the master Christian.

The Science of Jesus' healing works, which was discovered by Mary Baker Eddy and is fully set forth by her in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," reveals the vital facts underlying Christian healing as recorded in the Bible, such as man's present perfection as the reflection of perfect God. It also reveals that because God is not subject to sin, sickness, and death, God's man is not subject to this triad of errors, but reflects the power, glory, and majesty of his Maker. The Apostle John writes (I John 3:1, 2), "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God;" and correlative, to this Mrs. Eddy writes in "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468): "Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual."
