Our True Nobility

The beauty and nobility of true, spiritual manhood are widely mocked and challenged today. Those who do not understand the deep, spiritual basis of moral laws are flouting time-tested customs and mores. They are interpreting freedom as the ability to act according to the dictates of one's own inclinations without the discipline of standards.

But can there be freedom if the Principle of freedom, the divine Esse, or Lawgiver, is ignored or disobeyed? Mankind's freedom from suffering and limitation comes, not through submitting to perversion and moral lawlessness, but through demonstrating increasingly in human experience man's true nobility. Those who obey higher moral laws can find cause to rejoice that the Christ, Truth, continues to reveal to mankind their real Godlike natures.

Christian Science shows God as the divine Principle of all life. He is Life itself, and His expression is man. Obedience to the laws of divine Love brings immeasurable harmony and health into our lives. We can demonstrate that the reflected strength and integrity of the fatherhood of God, as well as the love and tenderness of the motherhood of God, are essential qualities of the true, spiritual man's nature.
