And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. —  1 Cor. xv. 45

 12.

      Just there, in the intermediate line of thought, is where the present writer found it, when she discovered Christian Science. And she has not left it, but continues the explanation of the power of Spirit up to its infinite meaning, its allness. The recognition of this power came to her through a spiritual sense of the real, and of the unreal or mortal sense of things; not that there is, or can be, an actual change in the realities of being, but that we can discern more of them. At the moment of her discovery, she knew that the last Adam, namely, the true likeness of God, was the first, the only man. This knowledge did become to her “a quickening spirit;” for she beheld the meaning of those words of our Master, “The last shall be first, and the first last.”  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.188:20-2)
