The Present Includes No Past

"What time is it?" a father asked his little son. Looking at the clockface, which was a complete mystery to him, the boy pondered. Then he answered triumphantly, "It's exactly right now!" As an afterthought he added, "And now is the accepting time!"

Even though the apostle's words were, "Now is the accepted time," II Cor. 6:2; we cannot deny that the boy's statement was a positive declaration of truth. Under the marginal heading "Present salvation" Mrs. Eddy writes, "Now is the time for so-called material pains and material pleasures to pass away, for both are unreal, because impossible in Science." Science and Health, p. 39; We will never find a better time than right now to claim our heritage as God's spiritual children.
