ESTABLISHING TRUE IDENTITY

In answer to Philip's request, "Shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us," Jesus said (John 14:9), "Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father." Thus Jesus clearly indicated that through his manifestation of the qualities of God he himself was manifesting God. Christian Science reiterates the Master's teaching regarding identity. On page 477 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes as follows: "Identity is the reflection of Spirit, the reflection in multifarious forms of the living Principle, Love."

The teachings of Christian Science enable one to reject the false notion that man lives in a material body, is identified with that body, and is in submission to a code of limiting material laws. All of these laws relate to false concepts of being which reside in mortal mind and operate through matter, the objectification of this supposititious mind. Adherence to this false concept of identity leads to the assumption that there is another creator besides God, good.
