Doomsday Needn't Come
The threat of atomic destruction—by design or accident—hangs over humanity like the sword of Damocles, and causes some to adopt the eat-drink-and-be-merry-for-tomorrow-we-die attitude. Many observers feel that the current wave of drug addiction and loose morals is due in part to this very reasoning—that life is going to be short, so why not live it up for all it's worth?
Like everyone else, students of Christian Science are aware of this threat, but their religion has proved to them that safety and satisfaction come from a spiritual source. They know that a fatalistic surrender to sensual self-indulgence—even under the shadow of the bomb—is futile and empty.
This Science is teaching humanity that, regardless of material sense testimony to the contrary, man is not a helpless wanderer in a soulless, mechanistic universe. He is not subject to instant annihilation. Man, as understood in Christian Science, is spiritual, the infinite, indestructible expression or reflection of God. This reflection is the embodiment of God's qualities' expressing the divine substance, and it lives safely and securely in the encircling presence of divine Love.
