NO THREAT CAN FRIGHTEN MAN

Threats against man are futile. They fade unfelt into nothingness, exactly as if they were uttered against God. Man is so close to God, so at one with Him, that God's immunity from evil embraces man too. God is infinite good eternally expressed, and man is His expression. God, perfect Mind, expresses Himself in ideas conceived in His own nature, His image and likeness. Since God unexpressed would be nonexistent, God in maintaining His own being maintains man also. Man is therefore eternal in the selfhood in which God conceives him.

If finite sense claims mesmerically to entertain finite conceptions and to label as man the consciousness comprised of such so-called conceptions, if finite sense claims to know man as subject to destruction and responsive through fear to the threat of termination, such claims are destined to dissipation and dissolution, while man in perfection goes right on. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, declares this to be true in no uncertain terms. In her book "No and Yes" (p. 25) she assures us, "Man outlives finite mortal definitions of himself, according to a law of 'the survival of the fittest.'"
