"An house not made with hands"

In his second epistle to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul writes, "We know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." Christendom has no better antidote for fear than the spiritual understanding of this passage, as gained in Christian Science, coupled with the realization that God, the builder of this heavenly house, is Love. The fact that man has an indestructible existence in God, his Maker, forever untouched by mortality and discord, is the truth which Christian Science is unfolding to humanity, healing it sickness and sin.

Mankind, generally, admits that mortal life, with its pleasures and pains, is fleeting and transitory; but it is not so ready to perceive that behind these dissolving views stand the spiritual facts of existence, unchanging and eternal. In the first chapter of Genesis we read that "God created man in his own image," and that "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." How contradictory to these statements are the daily evidences of sickness, sin, and distress we see around us! Small wonder that thinkers the world over are asking, "Why this seeming incongruity between the human and the divine?" And to this pertinent question Christian Science alone is giving to the world a satisfactory answer.
