"MARK THE PERFECT MAN"

One finds happiness, health, and security to the degree that he sees man as he really exists in God, divine consciousness, spiritual and perfect. Jesus discerned his true selfhood as one with God and hence flawless and complete. He saw spiritual health where mortal belief pictured disease, life where erroneous consciousness saw death, abundance where lack seemed real to false, human thinking, and pure being instead of a sinful mortal. It was this correct perception of real, immortal existence that enabled our Master to heal the sick and the sinning.

The Psalmist perceived the scientific rule of healing and thus voiced it (Ps. 37:37): "Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace." The word "end" as used here refers to result, not cessation. Christian Science teaches that the result of beholding perfect, upright, spiritual man is harmony, not discord; peace, not turmoil; health, not disease; life, not death.
