THE PERFECT POWER

The law of the Lord is perfect.—Psalm 19:7.

All Christians, whether Scientists or not, are practically agreed that there is but one God, the creator of all things, and necessarily, that the law which governs creation is God's law. Precisely as monotheism disclaims a plurality of gods (who suppositionally work quite as often at cross-purposes as in unison), so modern thinkers disclaim any concept of law that asserts either the contradiction of one law by another or that any law of God can be lawfully annulled. Indeed men are rapidly learning that to speak of divine law in the plural is like speaking of God in the plural, if by this is meant opposing laws. The unity of God involves the unity of law, and unity is oneness. It is as impossible to conceive of law as self-contradictory as it is to think of God as at war with Himself. Yet it is clear that what is commonly called material law never attains that unity which always characterizes the law of God.
