Anybody perfect? Yes, God's man!

Christian Scientists are sometimes chided for having colds, spraining an ankle, or running into marital problems. Because they seldom mention their difficulties, they may even be accused of "not admitting the facts."

Becoming a Christian Scientist is no guarantee that one will never again encounter troublesome situations or face a physical ailment. A Scientist, however, deals with challenges from a distinctly spiritual point of view. This means that from the outset he identifies himself properly—as God's child. Once he has done that, he is in a position to see things in quite a different light and to go forward to greater fulfillment of his true being.

Although a Scientist has a measure of understanding, he may not always remember to apply it, and he may not always be 100 percent successful in his attempt to stay with what he knows to be true of his perfection as God's child. But the understanding is there to be applied.
