A GREAT ADMISSION
All that Christian Science attains by way of healing and harmonizing human life rests upon the revelation that man is spiritual, the image, or expression, of God, and not the mortal which he seems to be. Mary Baker Eddy says in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 90), "The admission to one's self that man is God's own likeness sets man free to master the infinite idea."
One should often ask himself if he is truly making this great admission. Is he actually identifying himself as God's perfect son, and is he dealing with every contrary suggestion from that right standpoint? Often the erroneous theological belief that man is a sinful mortal is so ingrained in an individual's thought that he feels himself unworthy of claiming a perfect selfhood.
Christian Science does not advocate ignoring the claims of a mortal self. Quite the contrary. Christian Science uncovers the evils of human thought. But, from its standpoint of perfection, Science proves the nothingness of evil and matter and all the inharmonies of flesh. Of course, this Science must be understood in order for this result to be attained.
