YOUR QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Following the example set by the question-and-answer columns in the early Journals, when Mary Baker Eddy was Editor, this column will respond to general queries from Journal readers—such as the one above—with responses from Journal readers. You'll find information at the end of the column about how to submit questions.

YOUR QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

From the January 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal


QUESTION: Christian Science explains that the "Adam dream" (creation as described in Genesis 2) is our "human experience"—man and woman as imperfect, flawed—supposedly at the mercy of an inconsistent God. But Christian Science also shows that our identity is really only what is put forth in Genesis 1—we are entirely spiritual and complete, as God's image and likeness.
