DIVINE LAW AND ORDER

Christian Science brings the happy assurance that divine harmony and perfection are the ever-present and essential verities of God's creation, and that this harmony and perfection is perpetually maintained in obedience to unchanging spiritual law; that, as certainly as there is a created universe, just as surely is there a perfect law which governs it in exact order and according to unchanging divine purpose. The general tendency of the human mind to doubt or to dispute this statement of fact obtains only because a mutable and material creation or concept is being mistaken for God's creation, and because a chaotic, unpredictable misrule is being accepted as the divine government. Human theories interpret from an erroneous material basis; looking no farther than the limitations of mortality, they mistake the unreal for the real, error for truth, and the symbol for the substance.

Even the remarkable precision and order of the sensuous universe, its beauty of landscape and flower, its grandeur of ocean and sky, are not absolutely beautiful, but only relatively so because they are marred by the false belief in the reality of matter. Absolute beauty, perfect law and order, exist only in the realm of Spirit, God, to be discerned through spiritualized and purified consciousness.
