Ultimate Harmony

One of the most glorious of divine facts is that true being—God and His creation—is absolutely perfect, absolutely harmonious. Christian Science teaches that God is All-in-all, infinite and perfect Mind, Spirit, Soul, Life; and from this it draws the unassailable conclusion that His manifestation, His universe including individual man, is spiritual, perfect, harmonious. Some may point out that such a conclusion is not in keeping with human experience, where imperfection and inharmony are inseparable from materiality; but Christian Science replies that if the spiritual truths it declares are put to the test, proportionately to one's understanding of them, the result will be a demonstration of harmony.

The fact then is that, in spite of all that material sense may say to the contrary, real being is harmonious and perfect. Mrs. Eddy writes on page 390 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "We cannot deny that Life is self-sustained, and we should never deny the everlasting harmony of Soul, simply because, to the mortal senses, there is seeming discord." Our Leader did a very great thing when, in the light of the allness of God, Spirit, she announced to the world the unreal nature of material sense; for in maintaining that the imperfection and inharmony to which material sense appears to testify is altogether erroneous, she was contradicting a universal belief of mankind.
