"Whom nothing can erase"

No spiritual fact can possibly be erased. Nothing that is real can ever be obliterated, impaired, or destroyed.

A young student of Christian Science once realized very forcibly this indestructibility of true being. Prior to her earnest study of Christian Science, she had clung to a material basis for health and happiness, looking to personal friendships and human parentage for security. Entertaining an overwhelming and constant dread of the future and a despairing sense that nothing was stable or worthy of trust, she finally lapsed into a state of self-condemnation, failure, and unemployment.

At last a practitioner was consulted, and it was then discovered that the remedy lay in an entire change of thought. Instead of working from a human standpoint, searching to find the so-called material cause of her troubles, the student was directed to higher channels of thought. The practitioner pointed out that man's life is just as intact and immune from the flying shafts of error as is God, who is his Life.
