Indestructible relationship

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “The relations of God and man, divine Principle and idea, are indestructible in Science; and Science knows no lapse from nor return to harmony, but holds the divine order or spiritual law, in which God and all that He creates are perfect and eternal, to have remained unchanged in its eternal history.” Science and Health p.470.

    indestructible- that cannot be destroyed,
    destroyed-demolished, pulled down, annihilated
    lapse-to fall from a state of innocence, or from truth, faith or perfection

    This statement in this week’s lesson is one of my favorites in our textbook. To me it really sums up the basic teaching of Christian Science. It reminds me that there are no conditions under which man could ever be separated from God, his divine Principle. That I can never be in a position of having to return to God my source of harmony, health and perfection. Man’s perfection is unchanging and permanent and this is the law of his being. It also reminds me that I am never making any effort to recover something that I never lost in the first place. It is about waking up to the reality at hand, perfect God and perfect man. All suggestions to the contrary are lies about this statement and have no more reality than 2+2=5.

    Thank you lesson writer for this powerful lesson.
