Before the world was, health is

Christ Jesus, late in his brief earthly ministry, prayed, "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was." John 17:5;

The Master knew that his true being was eternally existent in God, and this existence was glorious! He clearly understood that his identity was not a past condition—something merely to be remembered—but the permanent expression of perfection. Christian Science teaches that this is also true of everyone. It is a present, demonstrable fact.

A spiritually scientific fact is never dated by time, nor is it dependent upon or related to matter. Even if unrecognized or undemonstrated, it is nevertheless a present fact.
