17 And unto Adam he said, Because
thou hast hearkened unto the voice of
thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree,
of which I commanded thee, saying,
Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is
the ground for thy sake; in sorrow
shalt thou eat of it all the days of
18 Thorns also and thistles shall
it bring forth to thee; and thou
shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt
thou eat bread, till thou return unto
the ground; for out of it wast thou
taken: for dust thou art, and unto
dust shalt thou return.
20 The soul that sinneth, it shall
die. The son shall not bear the
iniquity of the father, neither shall
the father bear the iniquity of the
son: the righteousness of the
righteous shall be upon him, and the
wickedness of the wicked shall be
21 But if the wicked will turn from
all his sins that he hath committed,
and keep all my statutes, and do that
which is lawful and right, he shall
surely live, he shall not die.

Treating the sick
|The Way, the Truth, the Life - His word - |
Are here, and now
Christ's silent healing, heaven heard,
Crowns the pale brow.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.

(Contradictions not found)
Anybody, who is able to perceive the incongruity between God's
idea and poor humanity, ought to be able to discern the
distinction (made by Christian Science) between God's man, made in
His image, and the sinning race of Adam.

I thank Thee O Father,...
|Thus olden faith's pale star now blends |
In seven-hued white!
Life, without birth and without end,
Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(Like evolving like)
To all that is unlike unerring and eternal Mind, this Mind
saith, "Thou shalt surely die;" and elsewhere the Scripture says
that dust returns to dust.
310:18-22 Chapter 10: Science of Being
Soul changeth not. We are commonly taught that there is a human
soul which sins and is spiritually lost, - that soul may be lost,
and yet be immortal. If Soul could sin, Spirit, Soul, would be
flesh instead of Spirit.
302:3 Chapter 10: Science of Being
(Identity not lost)
The material body and mind are temporal, but the real man is
spiritual and eternal. The identity of the real man is not lost,
but found through this explanation; for the conscious infinitude
of existence and of all identity is thereby discerned and remains
unchanged. It is impossible that man should lose aught that is
real, when God is all and eternally his. The notion that mind is
in matter, and that the so-called pleasures and pains, the birth,
sin, sickness, and death of matter, are real, is a mortal belief;
and this belief is all that will ever be lost.
