RADIO PROGRAM No. 148 - What Is Your View of Man?

INTERVIEWER: There is a difference between the Bible description of man made in the image of God, and all the sordid things we see and read about man. And if I am not mistaken, Christian Scientists believe that man is really pure and unfallen. How do you arrive at such a conclusion when it seems so obvious that just the opposite is true?

SPEAKER: We would agree that it is obvious that mortal man is a sinner. But Christian Science holds that mortal man is not the image of God in the first place. That is in our view, mortal man is a false concept of God's man.

INTERVIEWER: Are you saying there are two different kinds of man? God's man and mortal man?
