MAN.

- Section 7 -

 

II Corinthians 5:16,17
16 Wherefore henceforth know we no
man after the flesh: yea, though we
have known Christ after the flesh,
yet now henceforth know we him no
more.
17 Therefore if any man be in
Christ, he is a new creature: old
things are passed away; behold, all
things are become new.

***
Ephesians 4:7,13
7 But unto every one of us is given
grace according to the measure of the
gift of Christ.
13 Till we all come in the unity of
the faith, and of the knowledge of
the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
unto the measure of the stature of
the fulness of Christ:

No blight, no broken wing, no moan, 
Truth's fane can dim; 
Eternal swells Christ's music-tone, 
In heaven's hymn. 

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

(The curse removed)
Popular theology takes up the history of man as if he began
materially right, but immediately fell into mental sin; whereas
revealed religion proclaims the Science of Mind and its formations
as being in accordance with the first chapter of the Old
Testament, when God, Mind, spake and it was done.

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(-29- Adam not ideal man)
Jehovah declared the ground was accursed; and from this ground,
or matter, sprang Adam, notwithstanding God had blessed the earth
"for man's sake." From this it follows that Adam was not the ideal
man for whom the earth was blessed. The ideal man was revealed in
due time, and was known as Christ Jesus.

337:10-19 Chapter 10: Science of Being - [PLATFORM]

(-25- Man reflects the perfect God)
According to divine Science, man is in a degree as perfect as
the Mind that forms him. The truth of being makes man harmonious
and immortal, while error is mortal and discordant.
(-26- Purity the path to perfection)
XXVI. Christian Science demonstrates that none but the pure in
heart can see God, as the gospel teaches. In proportion to his
purity is man perfect; and perfection is the order of celestial
being which demonstrates Life in Christ, Life's spiritual ideal.

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

(Indestructible relationship)
The relations of God and man, divine Principle and idea, are
indestructible in Science; and Science knows no lapse from nor
return to harmony, but holds the divine order or spiritual law, in
which God and all that He creates are perfect and eternal, to have
remained unchanged in its eternal history.
