Man Is Safely Sheltered in Love

Man enhavened in God, divine Love, is not subject to attacks of error. In heaven, the atmosphere of Love, there is only perfection. In heaven there is no matter or mortal mind, else it would not be heaven, for it would have some of the characteristics of hell.

Christian Scientists are becoming accustomed to the significance of the word "man." They spontaneously reject the belief that he is mortal or made of dust and accept the true designation of him as incorporeal, spiritual, and eternal. Spiritual man, our real selfhood, is forever safe, forever free, forever whole, forever good. That which is spiritual in our thoughts, and there is much that is spiritual there, is evidence of our true selfhood. This spiritual reality in consciousness can never be destroyed. Error cannot find anyone's spirituality. It only, in belief, touches material sense and its supposititious objectifications. As long as we believe we have materiality as a part of our being, error will trouble us. But Christian Science, in conformity to Biblical admonition, counsels the individual to depart from material sense and to find his security in Christ, Truth.
