ARE SIN, DISEASE, AND DEATH REAL? October 6-12, 2008

ALL THINGS MADE NEW

THIS WEEK'S Christian Science Bible Lesson poses a question: Are sin, disease, and death real? The Lesson's Golden Text from Habakkuk establishes God's complete purity and perfection—elements of what Christian Science terms the allness of God. In fact, the word all appears seven times in the Responsive Reading. Habakkuk asserts that God is everlasting and thus deathless; all holy and thus sinless. The logical conclusion, then, is that God has no consciousness of sin, disease, or death.

The prophet Isaiah throughout his teachings presents God as standing alone in His allness and complete control. In chapter 45, cited in part in the Responsive Reading, Isaiah repeats at least five times in just slightly different wording, "I am God, and there is none else."
