Prophecy and History

The true significance of Christianity can best be grasped when it is considered from the standpoint of prophecy. Then we shall see that the ultimate experience of Christianity and that of mankind will necessarilly coincide; the success of one will be the success of the other.

The only possible way that Christianity could fail would be for mankind to misunderstand their true relationship to God, Spirit, and so resist the imperative demands for spiritual regeneration. But Christianity cannot fail because "the divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error," as Mary Baker Eddy defines "Christ" on page 583 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," has appeared in its full meaning through Christian Science and is superior to every false belief about God and man's inseparability from Him.

The Bible typifies mankind's experience with the material concept of existence as well as with the spiritual concept. When interpreted spiritually, this great Book assures us that we are destined to separate ourselves gradually from all that is material and to identify ourselves with the sinless and undying realities of Spirit until our human sense of existence yields completely to the divine, and our true selfhood is seen and demonstrated. In this perfect selfhood there is no sin, disease, or death.
