I am innocent

From the May 1987 issue of The Christian Science Journal


If you had been living a moral, law-abiding, blameless life and were suddenly accused of being a thief, wouldn't you hasten to proclaim your innocence? Are we just as quick to say "not guilty" when it appears we are sick, too old, too poor, and so on? As God's child, man is not subject to such conditions but is under the divine law of good—of health, joy, love. This spiritual law does not give us the right to break the justly conceived statutes of government.
