"No element of self-destruction"

"If the Mind which is divine could include evil, it would no longer be divine"

Only that which is perfect can be termed real. Hence all that is real is God and His ideas, which are as perfect as He is perfect. On page 311 of Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy says, "Soul is immortal because it is Spirit, which has no element of self-destruction." It follows that man, the reflection of Soul or Spirit, God, has no element of self-destruction, and, like his creator, he is immortal. Erroneous mortal concepts, including sin, disease, and discord, are not the handiwork of God. They are temporal and unreal and hold within themselves the elements of self-destruction.
