Separation

Every claim of sickness or sin is a claim of separation, a belief that man can be separated from God and from that which God gave him; namely, health, harmony, perfection, goodness. Paul recognized this claim when he asked, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

The effort of error to separate man from God is clearly recognized in all its subtle forms and false presentations by every active working Christian Scientist who is learning to analyze thought, and to cleave to the true and repudiate the false. In order to do this intelligently he must have a clear apprehension of the truth about God and man. That which presents a distorted, discordant, sick, or sinning sense of man is false, because it does not conform to the right standard, because it represents as real, a misconception of man, one which God did not create and does not know.
