Life as Principle

Life as revealed in Christian Science is synonymous with divine Principle. Neither in Life nor in the experience of Life's witness are there any birthdays or any death-days. Life with its manifestation is exempt from the nightmare of so-called material substance, disease, sin, death. Life as Principle is entire, immutable, infinite.

The specter of fear haunts the presumption called organic life, and to this presumption is further traceable the subtle suggestion that good may come from surrendering to "the last enemy." The Christian Scientist is impelled to banish from his thought both the hope and the dread superstitiously associated with death. "Whosoever will save his life shall lose it." Goodness emanating from divine Mind alone is indestructible. Hence Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 426), "Sin brought death, and death will disappear with the disappearance of sin." Are faults of character disappearing as totally and speedily as they should and could were we consistently faithful and alert? Life is represented in honesty, love, joy. It is absent in discord, sorrow, fear, for these lifeless errors bear no relation to divine Principle.
