"SAFE IN THE SUBSTANCE OF SOUL"

The three men in the fiery furnace and Daniel in the lions' den certainly proved that spiritual individuality is ever safe in God, infinite good. On two occasions when some of the Jews sought to kill Christ Jesus, he proved that the realization of spiritual individuality protects one. We read in the Bible of one of these incidents (Luke 4:30), "But he passing through the midst of them went his way." When Jesus felt that the time had come for him to make the demonstration over death, however, he allowed his enemies to attempt to kill him. Because of his knowledge of indestructible spiritual individuality the Master was not afraid to go through this experience. His realization that he was truly an individual manifestation of perfect Life brought victory over death.

Speaking of Christ Jesus' spiritual individuality, Mary Baker Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 104): "His unseen individuality, so superior to that which was seen, was not subject to the temptations of the flesh, to laws material, to death, or the grave. Formed and governed by God, this individuality was safe in the substance of Soul, the substance of Spirit,—yea, the substance of God, the one inclusive good."
