You cannot avoid perfection!

From the November 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal


"I don't wish to go to heaven if there is a single person left in hell," I used to say when I was an adolescent and rebelled against the traditional concept of eternal damnation. The fundamental contradiction between the concept of a God of love and the cruel thought of eternal damnation was one of the things causing me such deep dissatisfaction with my childhood church that I finally left it.
