No Lapse from Harmony

Mortal mind is constantly suggesting to mankind the fear of change. It says happiness can change to unhappiness, joy to sorrow, hope to despair. But the Bible tells us that "God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him" (Gen. 1:27). God is always the same. How then can man, His image, be subject to change? He cannot; he must always reflect his original. Human conditions may change, but we have only to turn our thought to the one changeless Mind, God, to find stability, health, happiness, and peace.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes (p. 471), "Science knows no lapse from nor return to harmony, but holds the divine order or spiritual law, in which God and all that He creates are perfect and eternal, to have remained unchanged in its eternal history." Here Mrs. Eddy gives a clear picture of the stability of God and of the consequent perfection of man, forever supported by divine law and never at the mercy of chance or change.
