Perfection: The Basis of True Being

Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 259), "The Christlike understanding of scientific being and divine healing includes a perfect Principle and idea,—perfect God and perfect man,—as the basis of thought and demonstration." This statement is in full agreement with and is in support of the teachings of Christ Jesus. He said (Matt. 5:48), "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."

It is important to see clearly that Mrs. Eddy's significant pronouncement links true being and divine healing with the reverent acknowledgment of God's perfection. It honors Him with supreme and flawless excellence, with consummate exactitude, with eternal and harmonious continuance, with truth and love tenderly expressed in a perfect creation.
