God and Man

Illinois State Register

To the Editor.

It will be readily conceded that the question, What is God? is fundamental to every religion. Whatever terms we may use in relation to Deity can make no possible difference to Him. The only question at issue is, are they helpful to us? One learns to think more practically and lovingly of God through the terms used by Christian Science to explain Him. Such thought is not indefinite, for it is unswerving faith, and rests in the perfect assurance of having discerned the omnipotence and omnipresence of God in whom is no evil at all. It would seem to a Christian Scientist that to refer to God as "a Being who is divinely human" involves a contradiction. God is infinite, and everything human is finite. To think of God after human concepts, even remotely, would be as material as if one were to paint a picture and worship that.
