MAN CANNOT BE DISAPPOINTING OR DISAPPOINTED

One need not search far in the Bible to find an accurate statement of God's true appointment of man. In the first chapter of Genesis is set forth an account of God's perfect creation—spiritual, satisfactory, and altogether good. Man in God's image and likeness is given dominion over all the earth. His appointment is blessed with power to "be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it" (1:28). Thus God's imaging forth of His own completeness, self-containment, and wholeness in infinitely various aspects appears through individual consciousness, appointed of God through law to express Him purposefully, specifically, and triumphantly. This perfect image is perpetually maintained and governed by the invariable laws of God, good.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy states (p. 304), "The perfect man—governed by God, his perfect Principle—is sinless and eternal." Here we have the true story of man—immortal, perfect, and harmoniously governed by his Maker. It is utterly inconceivable that this man could ever fail to fulfill the design of his perfect and infinite creator, his loving Father-Mother God.
