Loss is unreal!

This can be a challenging statement to prove in today's world, where we often hear of loss—loss of health, of possessions, of identity. Yet Christian Science teaches that man loses nothing real.

Starting from the premise that God is All, we see that man, as God's reflection, is complete, including all the right ideas God imparts. Because God is infinite, eternal good, man reflects this goodness permanently, continuously, without variation, interruption, or diminution.

Man cannot lose health because man reflects the wholeness and completeness of divine Principle. Health in man is normal, perfect, and permanent. Health is universal because all the expressions of God reflect health. Health cannot be lost because the fluctuations and impermanence of materiality, beliefs of accident, contagion, or weather-induced disease, have never been conditions upon which health depends.
