A new take on Christ coming to “the flesh”

From the October 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Before I learned of Christian Science, I lived in fear of material laws that dictated how my body functioned (or didn’t), how I felt physically, and what I could accomplish on a particular day. I had no doubt my body was at the mercy of contagion, heredity, accident, or whatever was being commercially advertised as the latest disease to be concerned about.

But as I read and studied Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the textbook of Christian Science, I began to see what the discovery of Christian Science meant for me—and for all mankind. The more I read, the more I realized I was learning about how Christ Jesus applied the laws of God, proving for all ages that it was the divine right of man (everyone) to be free from sin, disease, and death.

This freedom is based on the spiritual fact that man is created by God, divine Spirit, in His image and likeness. This means man is not material, he is spiritual, and is governed by God’s law of perpetual harmony, safe in divine Spirit.
