Security by Reason of Reflecting God

Man is secure in God's unfailing love. The perfect ideas of God, expressing only the qualities of good, are never separable from God. Nothing touches the real man which is not derived from God.

When one stands before a mirror in a lighted room, his reflection stands before him in the mirror. So long as he remains before it, the reflection, too, remains. When the room is dark, he does not see the likeness; but the light again reveals it. Nobody in reason could expect to handle materially the likeness, or move it independently of the object of which it is the reflection.

As one examines the teachings of Christian Science, and his consciousness becomes flooded with the light of its truths, he sees God as the Life of man, who is His reflection. Nothing can separate the reflection from its Principle, God. Discerning this truth of being, Paul could confidently declare, "Neither death, nor life, no 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."
