We are loved

When faced with a troubling situation, we sometimes feel all alone in this world. God may seem too far away to hear us, and friends too busy or too selfish to care. Self-pity and self-condemnation, frustration and resentment, become deceptive sources of comfort. When we accept sadness, hurt, anger, or hatred, we usually end up being afraid. And fear is a main root of sin and disease. To fear is to admit that there are other causes and powers than God, who is Truth and Love; that man is physique; and that life is temporary.

Mrs. Eddy tells us, however: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." Science and Health, p. 468. Christian Science teaches that perfect God creates perfect man, good and spiritual. There can be no space in perfection for errors; no sins in good; no matter in Spirit. Man, as the perfect spiritual image of God, enjoys a divinely bestowed birthright as God's heir—cared for, loved, and protected by his Father-Mother. Mrs. Eddy defines God as "the great I am; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence." Ibid., p. 587.
