Nothing Real Can Be Lost

How wonderfully reassuring for all mankind is this statement of Mrs. Eddy's: "It is impossible that man should lose aught that is real, when God is all and eternally his." Science and Health, p. 302; Christian Science teaches that whatever is of God is good and that good is as indestructible and eternal as is God. It also teaches that man is the spiritual image and likeness of God. Then man is not a mortal, separated from God and at the mercy of material laws of sin, sickness, and death.

It follows that the centuries-old, mortal concept that matter is real, along with all errors of material sense, must be expunged from human consciousness and replaced with the truth that everything real exists in a state of spiritual perfection now. The discernment of this truth acts as a law of restoration in human affairs.
