"WHO WANTS TO BE MORTAL?"

"Who wants to be mortal, or would not gain the true ideal of Life and recover his own individuality?" These are thought-provoking questions to be found on page 104 0f "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mary Baker Eddy. The word mortal is derived from the Latin word mortalis, from mors, mortis, meaning death, and the inference is that man is a mortal, destined to die. What a wrong, untrue concept this is of the real man, who is the very image and likeness of God !

Through the sacred revelations of Christian Science we discover that the spiritual man, our true individuality, is immortal, not mortal, and therefore not formed of the dust or subject to material limitations. Our true selfhood is incorporeal, deathless, diseaseless; it has no material beginning or ending. Through spiritual revelation we find God to be infinite Mind, the only cause and creator, and we look to God to find man, His idea, for God and His man coexist.
