Purity: pathway to freedom

Purity is considered by many today as an old-fashioned quality, but, actually, purity is never outmoded. It is an essential facet of our true nature as sons and daughters of God.

If we think of man as a sinning mortal ridden with moral blemishes, the achievement of self-purification may seem to be a hopeless task. There may be a continuing round of progress followed by retrogression. Christian Science points to a higher concept of man as the image and likeness of God, as we are taught in the first chapter of Genesis. Surely, such spiritual individuality cannot be anything but pure. The Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded this Science, states: "In Science man is the offspring of Spirit. The beautiful, good, and pure constitute his ancestry." Science and Health, p. 63.
