MAN'S EXISTENCE

Man's existence is more than the simple fact of his being; it is the mode of it. Man's existence includes his character, his way of acting, his manner of living, as well as his experiences, his associations, his occupation. And because man is the perfect likeness of God, as the Bible and Christian Science reveal, his existence is spiritual and represents his source—his divine Principle. The continuity of good is the natural order of his life. Mary Baker Eddy says of God's man (Pulpit and Press, p. 4): "His is an individual kingdom, his diadem a crown of crowns. His existence is deathless, forever unfolding its eternal Principle."

Here we have a refreshing view of man as he exists in reality. This man is not a mortal, dependent upon other mortals for life and character, bound by material laws and frustrated by self-imposed limits of intelligence and power. Spirit's likeness must be—indeed is —spiritual. This likeness moves in freedom of spiritual expansion as the outcome of the one wholly good, forever unfolding Principle, God.
