Traveling Safe with God

The word "accident," coming from the Latin accidere, "to happen" (from ad + cadere "to fall"), implies a belief in chance. Fear or apprehension is often entertained when one is traveling, if he believes himself to be in the hand of chance or fate. Christian Science helps us to overcome this fear or belief, because through Science we learn that there is no chance in the realm of Mind. All accidents or untoward conditions stem from the so-called mortal mind.

Fears and limitations disappear before the truth that there is no other mind or power beside the divine Mind. Mind knows the past, present, and future and knows it to be spiritual and good. There is nothing unknown to this infinite Mind; what is to come has already come, and man, the emanation of Mind, is governed by God, good, not by chance.

Mrs. Eddy states: "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God's unerring direction and thus bring out harmony." She adds, "Under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection." Science and Health, p. 424;
