No need to give up

You Can Progress

God's law of progress governs the universe and everything in it. This law encompasses man. No one can escape from its might. There isn't a place or situation outside its infinitude. Stagnation or retrogression are impossibilities in God's kingdom. No limiting belief, prognosis, or diagnosis can elude nullification by omniscient Principle, God.

Paul points out the road to spiritual progress when he says, "Put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and . . . put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Eph. 4:22-24;

It sometimes seems that people are either inching too slowly uphill toward good or sliding too quickly downhill toward evil. Improvement seems difficult or impossible. So they give up. But Christian Science teaches that God's law of progress governs man with absolute authority. Therefore ability to advance belongs to everyone regardless of present situation or past experience. It's an integral part of man's being as the expression of God. Intelligence quotients, brain structure, mental or physical deficiencies, have no real bearing on one's potential for progress.
