Christian Science lays stress upon the omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience of God, in full accord with Scriptural authority; designating Him also the divine Mind, inasmuch as He was, is, and ever will be the one and only intelligence, the creative, governing, and sustaining Principle of all being. Christian Science lays stress also upon the statement in the first chapter of Genesis, that man was created in the image and likeness of this God. Paul has it, "In him we live, and move, and have our being," and urges upon mortals, as a panacea for human ills, the attainment of "that mind which was also in Christ Jesus." It will also be well to remember in this connection how Jesus declared that of himself he could do nothing, but that he thought, acted, and spoke only as he was led by the Father. Thus he established the basis for the teaching in Christian Science that there is but one Mind, and that this Mind is God. The human mind, so-called, which is identical with that which the Scriptures designate "the carnal mind" and declare to be "enmity against God" or against good,—this mind plays no part whatever in the practice of Christian Science. It is looked upon in the teaching of this Science as the mind of the "flesh" which "profiteth nothing."
