MAN DOES NOT SUFFER

No one need suffer for past mistakes. No one need pay the exacting price of retribution for having done wrong. Forgiveness of sins is a precious and immediate activity of the Christ. Consciousness, under the persuasion of the Christ, the spiritual idea of God, can be restored at once to its normal awareness of innocence. This spiritual awareness is always accompanied by the wiping out of all penalty for guilt. But the wiping out of penalty for guilt is wholly contingent upon wiping out guilt. That the latter can be accomplished is to the everlasting glory of Christianity as illumined by Christian Science, and to the everlasting comfort of all who avail themselves of it for release from the burden of condemnation.

Man is normally and undeviatingly innocent. He cannot swerve from his God-ordained activity of making manifest the presence of God. Man is the qualities of God, divine Mind, individualized. Those qualities are not capable of deflection from the purity of their divine source. Hence man can never deserve suffering. And in the inexorable justice forever meted out by the divine Parent, man never suffers.
