Love's journey—immovable being

From the June 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Is it possible to be on a journey and yet immovably fixed at the same time?

Christian Science and spiritual sense teach us that man is always held in God's tender, infinitely loving care, that he never moves away from the Father-Mother God. Yet our human lives go through many changes—changes that may be frightening or disturbing. Does this mean that man is sometimes held in God's care and sometimes not? How could something be true sometimes and not true at other times? How is this apparent paradox resolved?

The human scene does seem to be a mixture of warring good and evil, materiality and spirituality. This battle between what the material senses say and what the spiritual senses say takes place in the human consciousness—the only place this kind of battle can take place. As the evidence of the material senses is proved to be illusory (since it is not based on God, or Truth), then man's spiritual being comes to light, as it did with Christ Jesus. Material sense must ultimately yield to spiritual sense, which is eternally revealing the facts of being.
