Signs of life
How much do we trust the reports of the body that are commonly called vital signs? What do they really tell us about true life and health? Spiritual faith turns us toward the primal source and ultimate sustainer of all life and health—God Himself.
God is the only Life, Mind, and Soul of His creation, including Godlike man. Spiritual man's existence, intelligence, and consciousness, reflecting God, can't be diminished or increased but ever unfold from the basis of their completeness. Through spiritual sense we discern that true manhood cannot be less alive, alert, and active than its creator and keeper, God. Man's life never hangs in the balance. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health: "Suffering, sinning, dying beliefs are unreal. When divine Science is universally understood, they will have no power over man, for man is immortal and lives by divine authority." Science and Health, p. 76.
No scanning machine could have divulged what the Life, Mind, and Soul of Christ Jesus was doing for him, even when his persecutors pronounced him dead on the cross and his friends placed him in a tomb. No material support system could have nourished his resurrection. Deeply honoring the demonstration of our great Master, Science and Health asks, "Could it be called supernatural for the God of nature to sustain Jesus in his proof of man's truly derived power?" And on the same page we read, "There were rock-ribbed walls in the way, and a great stone must be rolled from the cave's mouth; but Jesus vanquished every material obstacle, overcame every law of matter, and stepped forth from his gloomy resting-place, crowned with the glory of a sublime success, an everlasting victory." Ibid., pp. 44-45. Jesus made this sublime demonstration of life through spiritual power alone, unmixed with any reliance on material means.
