When looking to mortal man for evidences of Life and Truth, we find sin and death stronger than either of these, hence we must look away from body to soul; not in mortality is Spirit that is infinite and blest. It is impossible to shut up the infinite in man; we cannot be both Spirit and matter, for these are opposites. Again, if God is both within and without all things, then all is God. When we say the body is matter, we say with Paul, then you must certainly be “absent from the body, to be present with the Lord,” even Spirit. But to be absent from the body, materia medica calls death, yet Jesus and Paul knew Life is not in the body. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed. p.155-156)
