The Problem of Age Can Be Solved

One of the problems of mankind which most demands a radical solution is that of age. Even in the face of increasing longevity, the general mortal belief is that with advancing years one must become unemployable and, as time goes on, decline in ability and energy. But the student of Christian Science is taught that one's worth can neither be measured by nor depend upon one's age.

This Science reveals that an understanding of God's law, His truth, enables us to correct the erroneous supposition that man is a material being who can age and gradually deteriorate. It teaches that man is the expression of God, made in His image and likeness, and that this man of God's creating is spiritual and perfect.

It is the false view of man as material that causes men to accept the beliefs about age, its limitations and fears. The true view reveals spiritual man, who is not an aging mortal having a material body subject to loss of energy and declining faculties. Spiritual man expresses eternal Life. To overcome beliefs of age, one must identify himself as a son of God and cease believing in the material so-called laws which claim that man is material and mortal.
