Reflection—not absorption

From the April 1983 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The words used in Christian Science to describe man as the idea of God— expression, emanation, manifestation, image, likeness —all indicate an outgoing activity, the reflection of the divine nature and character. This teaching is premised on the fact that the kingdom of heaven is within man and that it is man's nature to reflect this true being.
