Why Have a Diagnosis?

The belief that man is a corporeal person made up of organic matter has resulted in the generally accepted theory that his health and activity depend upon a material body. This leads to the opinion accepted by some that one needs to have a physical checkup, and even to repeat this checkup periodically, to find out if there is anything wrong that needs attention. Today many corporations and business firms require an applicant to submit to a physical examination before he is employed or his application is finally considered.

Christian Science approaches man's well-being in an entirely different manner. It reveals through its teachings that instead of being a corporeal person made up of organic matter, man is, in his real being, spiritual, made in the image and likeness of God as the Scriptures declare. Thus, as the image and likeness of God, Spirit, man is inorganic, of the substance of Spirit.
