"NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION"

Mortal belief makes its most confident assertion in the statement that at its best life must speedily yield to death; that "it is soon cut off, and we fly away." The general acceptance of this order of experience is no more certain, however, than is the fact that it is wholly out of alignment with the Scripture which declares man to be the image, the manifestation of eternal Life, and it has been made clear to all intelligent Christian Scientists that to be saved, in keeping with our Lord's teaching and demonstration, means the overthrow of the entrenched belief in the normality of a practically universal human experience.

When one thinks of the vastness of this issue, he can but realize that a more daring assertion was never made than that of our Leader when she took her unequivocal stand against the testimony of human history, experience, and philosophy, and averred that "to the real man and the real universe there is no death-process" (Science and Health, p. 289). The assurance of ultimate triumph over death as commonly held by professed Christians has not meant to them that death has no place in the economy of God, or that it should be eliminated from experience by being banished from belief, and just here the vital significance and searching detail of the teaching of Christian Science should be the better understood, for we remember that, according to physiologists, the belief in death comes into touch with the human sense of life at every point.
