THE STANDARD OF PERFECTION

Christ Jesus said (Matt. 5: 48), "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." This command, given to his disciples in the Sermon on the Mount, sets a spiritual standard that cannot be lowered. The Master clearly understood that man is truly spiritual, hence perfect, possessing the very qualities of the one divine Principle, God. Furthermore, Jesus did not set forth an impossible standard. He demonstrated this perfection and thus had every right to demand that his followers demonstrate man's perfect status by casting out sin, disease, and death.

When one begins to realize that his real selfhood is spiritual, he has started to obey the Master's commandment to be perfect.
