GOOD REMAINS FOREVER

"That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past," we read in Ecclesiastes (3:15). To those who gauge reality by the evidence before the personal senses, this statement may seem a senseless riddle. Such materialists might ask: "How can things that were, be now, when we have observed their destruction?" and, "How can one declare that things which have not yet appeared on this earth have already been?"

The Preacher in this instance was referring to the eternality of spiritual, not material, things. Christian Science makes it clear that the substantial qualities and ideas of God remain forever. They have no relationship to matter, or to the past, or to the future. Whatever is real exists in the ever-present now. God holds in His care every identity, every quality and idea, every true aspect of our being. Man, God's spiritual and requisite idea, exists in timeless, matterless reality.
