One of the revolutionary teachings of Christian Science is that man is created a spiritual child of God, made in the image of perfection, and not subject to sin, disease and death.
The human mind works overtime to counter this truth. In its false beliefs of life in matter, it argues for sin and suffering. But no amount of error will ever change the truth.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Man is incapable of sin, disease and death. The real man cannot depart from holiness, nor can God, by whom man is evolved, engender the capacity or freedom to sin” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 475).
Man made in God’s likeness is incapable of sin. As a spiritual being, we are sinless. We reflect God’s sinless nature.
I find this truth incredibly empowering when walking through life’s experiences. I do not have to accept sin as my master. I can master sin with an understanding of my spiritual truth with God. It helps me understand that I am not a weak enslaved mortal. I am a spiritually empowered immortal who knows the right thing to do and is happy to do it.
As a child of God, I am not inclined to sin. My natural inclination and desire are to do right.
God governs me, not sin!
