Being is intact

Intact. Think of that word, of its sweet assurance. It speaks to the heart of that which remains uninjured, unaltered, unimpaired, of that which retains its original condition and beautiful completeness.

Who hasn't earnestly longed for the assurance that what's most precious—love, substance, health—really will be intact, the same in ten years as today or last year? But doesn't it seem as though life is full of challenges that would steal away or diminish our being?

Based on the authority of the Bible, Christian Science presents a radically different framework of reality. It maintains that God is the only I am, or Being, forever complete and intact, and that man as God's exact image has his being, safe and equally intact, in this divine Being. Divine Being is Spirit, the only indestructible substance. Furthermore, God is Love itself, everlasting, unchanging. This adorable Father-Mother Love embraces His-Her entire universe, and Love tenderly holds all within its infinity complete, moment-by-moment, in permanent unity. Not one iota of Love's expression ever has been or ever will be taken from the universe (and that means you and me).
