Speaking as a true humanitarian and great spiritual seer, Mary Baker Eddy declares in "Unity of Good" (p. 49), "The more I understand true humanhood, the more I see it to be sinless, —as ignorant of sin as is the perfect Maker."

There is in what is called the human consciousness a basic element which is able to perceive spiritual truth. If this were not true, the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, could not be understood by mankind and would therefore be of no practical value. The human self is something more than a mere physical personality. The integrity, gentleness, purity, and loyalty manifested by human beings are basic spiritual qualities pertaining to man's real identity. These and kindred spiritual qualities, which are in no way linked to mortal ancestry, constitute man's divine nature, the spirit of the Christ, which alone can rule out of human experience all effects of the anti-Christ, or sin.
