A fresh look at possibilities for good

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, May 4, 2017.

The approach that is changing lives in Haiti (see editorial on facing page) indicates that the potential for good and success is inherent in everyone. My understanding of this inherent goodness has deepened through the study and practice of Christian Science.

Christian Science teaches that the true nature of everyone is completely spiritual and good. This is based on the premise that God, the divine Spirit that is infinite good, has created each of us as His image and likeness. This means that our spiritual identity is not limited by human opinion, education, environment, or past mistakes.

Christ Jesus healed and changed lives by showing others that their divine nature had always been incorruptible and inseparable from God. With a deep awareness that, as God’s children, each of us has been given the full measure of goodness, he was able to say, “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
