Man at One with God

A linchpin of the system of Christian Science is that man is the outcome of God, always spiritual and in unity with Him, and never a mortal wanting to be united with Him. This truth of being is demonstrable in our everyday affairs to the extent that we lay aside mortal identification—that is, thinking of ourselves as mortal persons, primates, rather than as God's spiritual reflection.

Mortal man is not the expression of God's being but a distortion of it. Imposing all limitation and suffering are the arguments— apparently supported by sense evidence—that man is mortal, and has broken away from his divine origin, God. A conviction that in our actual selfhood we are the expression of God rather than an organic mortal entity is demonstrably the way to healing.
