"O DREAMER, LEAVE THY DREAMS"

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy makes this arresting statement (pp. 476, 477): "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick. Thus Jesus taught that the kingdom of God is intact, universal, and that man is pure and holy."

When the writer was a very new student of Christian Science, this statement was an enigma to him. The question that confronted him was always the same one, namely: "In what way did Jesus see the perfect man and with what mind was he working?" It was patent that Jesus could not have seen this perfect man with the human eye, and this indicated that his view must have been a mental one.
