From the May 1962 issue of The Christian Science Journal

On all sides one is constantly being reminded to use caution in order to have safety in the home, at business, and on the highway. This well-intentioned advice is based upon the belief that under certain conditions physical laws, or forces, operate to produce disability, disaster, and destruction.

There is a positive and practical way to gain protection from accidents. That way is to rely for guidance on the all-inclusive spiritual law of God as revealed through the study of the Holy Bible and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.

The first chapter of Genesis tells us that God made the entire universe. He created man in His image and likeness and gave man dominion over all the earth. The chapter closes by stating that "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good" (verse 31). Now, since God made all that was made, He obviously made all the laws that govern the activity of His spiritual creation, including His idea, man. Since God saw that all was very good, in their operation these laws must always produce harmony and perfection. This fact precludes the possibility of the existence of material, physical laws or forces which could result in disaster and destruction.
