MAN'S HISTORY

"The relations of God and man, divine Principle and idea, are indestructible in Science; and 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." Consecrated study of this passage from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (pp. 470, 471), brings the realization that because of God's unchanging and unalterable allness everything real, including man as God's idea, is perfect and complete now and always has been.

In God's kingdom, the realm of the real, where God is eternally omnipotent, no untoward situation has ever occurred, for there has never been a moment when self-existent Mind, God, has not been All and in possession of its own idea, man. The understanding and acceptance of this fact leads naturally to the acceptance of Mrs. Eddy's statement (ibid., p. 287), "Error is false, mortal belief; it is illusion, without spiritual identity or foundation, and it has no real existence." Error's seeming existence and infraction of the divine order is known, or is occurring, only in mortal mind's baseless, substanceless dream picture.
