The Indestructibility of Good

Nothing that is good can ever be destroyed. This fact may be a challenge to anyone who has thought that some things that he considered good have passed away in his experience. But the fact remains that whatever reflects the nature of good, or God, is eternal and not subject to decay or dissolution.

It is both healing and comforting to consider the various implications of this truth. Good is another term for God, or Spirit, and therefore whatever is good must also be spiritual. It must be an expression of the divine creative Principle, Truth and Love. Every expression of this Principle is as eternal as the Principle itself.

Jesus understood that man is the child of God, the image and likeness of the one Father. Therefore he knew that man is spiritual and indestructible. His understanding of this fact enabled him to heal the sick and dying and even to raise the dead. Mrs. Eddy says (Science and Health, p. 369), "He understood man, whose Life is God, to be immortal, and knew that man has not two lives, one to be destroyed and the other to be made indestructible."
