“The eternal Truth destroys what mortals seem to have learned from error, and man’s real existence as a child of God comes to light.” (Science and Health 288: 31-1)
Truth is always maintaining the facts of our origin and writing our beautiful life story. The perfect Word of God about our identity cancels out, erases, that wrong solution that we may have worked out humanly. Material circumstances of birth and growth and the human sense of life they present to us are not the real story, not our true history or a true harbinger of our future.
Man is a child of God. All that the human sense seems to have learned from error, the limited and faulty and discouraging material view, is lost in the recognition of the Truth. If we have a math problem we have been doing wrong for years and now realize the true answer and the reason why, we no longer need to factor in the wrong answer, nor would we want to. We just begin with the truth, the solution that really works, and erase the old without hesitation. We don’t cling to 2 + 2 = 5. We replace it with the truth we now realize and use that going forward.
The mistakes and miseries of human experience–the guilt and the shame and the blame and the frustration–do not make a mess of things, of God’s Life-design. You are still His idea. You are still the result of His perfect and peaceful law in operation. As the Truth comes to light that God is Love and the only and perpetual Source of all, we can no longer accept what we seem to have learned. It no longer rings true. It doesn’t help us at all today.
Don’t cling to the false and the unproductive. Start with the right premise and its proper result and go forth with praise, promise, prosperity, and peace!
