Out of Danger

Safety is the common desire of all. Danger mankind avoids, or seeks protection from. In the material world danger to life, health, and possessions seems to lurk in many forms, and no complete protection from it is to be found in material forces, or places. Mortals are subject to danger, seen and unseen. In time of war, when cunningly devised forces of destruction are used, danger is many times multiplied. The importance then is emphasized of discovering the inviolable safety which God, omnipotent, everywhere present good, eternally provides for His man. When the darkness deepens we see the stars.

Where does danger come from? Who made it? Is it a part of God's plan? Danger results from belief in and fear of an evil power presumed to be greater than the power of God and capable of evolving ways and means wherewith to endanger, harm, and often destroy men. Danger is a negative, mistaken state of thought which appears only outside the allness of God. It exists only as a false belief. Danger is unknown to God and equally unknown to His man, His expression. There is nothing in God, infinite intelligence, out of which to make danger; nothing in His omnipresence to think or to feel danger.

The combination of many destructive material forces in a world war does not change one iota the universality and intactness of God's kingdom, His self-expression, and man's oneness therewith. No cataclysm of contending forces endangers or exercises the slightest influence in His Love-governed creation, where safety is as universal and impartial as is Life.
