THINGS IMPOSSIBLE IN SCIENCE

There are some things that are impossible in Christian Science. One of these is that man can exist apart from God. This of course he cannot do, because his origin and existence are in God, eternal Life. Christ Jesus came to prove that a mortal is not the man of God's creating. He turned away from the concept of the so-called man whose "breath is in his nostrils" (Isa. 2: 22), and maintained the true concept of man as spiritual and perfect.

Material sense, which presents man as a mortal, never testifies to the facts of being. So-called material sense is actually an impossibility according to the teachings of Christian Science. Only spiritual sense can testify truly regarding existence. Jesus taught that life is to be found in God alone and that it has nothing to do with mortality. These facts are clear to anyone who understands God aright as Spirit and who acknowledges man as the son of God —the idea of Spirit. Referring to God's man, Mary Baker Eddy writes (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 258), "Never born and never dying, it were impossible for man under the government of God in eternal Science, to fall from his high estate."
