THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF SEPARATION

Speaking of the two contradictory records of creation in the book of Genesis, Mary Baker Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 522): "The first record assigns all might and government to God, and endows man out of God's perfection and power. The second record chronicles man as mutable and mortal,—as having broken away from Deity and as revolving in an orbit of his own." To this statement she adds, "Existence, separate from divinity, Science explains as impossible."

God is forever engaged in governing His universe. Divine Principle is forever in operation. Therefore man can never be separated from his heavenly Father. But to the human heart is constantly presented the false belief that for some individuals the protection and provision of infinite Love are at least temporarily withdrawn. The Apostle Paul clearly understood that, man does not move in "an orbit of his own." With unquestioning faith in the oneness of God and His creation he was able to say (Rom. 8:38, 39), "I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor 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."
