Mrs. Eddy specifically points out that God alone is the creator of all, and Lord over all. She further reiterates this by declaring God to be both Father and Mother of all; the only first cause, the common parent of all; therefore. the purpose of these teachings, dealing so ably with the vast problem of life and infinite being, cannot be misdirected into channels of personal emulation by the mere claim of any one, and thus lose the spiritual hues and impersonal leadings of divine Mind.

Every word of Mrs. Eddy's revelation is in deep sympathy and accord with the Bible and John's version of creation. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ... All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." This sense of completion in God is further elucidated by Mrs. Eddy, where she says, "Christian Science explains the nature of God as both Father and Mother" (Messages to The Mother Church, p. 46). All men admit that the creation which surrounds them must have a common source. Even to acknowledge that we exist is to admit an origin, a cause or creator for this existence, and in the Christian world this cause is generally called God. For does not the Bible declare God to have said: "I AM THAT I AM," for "I am God, and there is none else"? Mrs. Eddy's definition is only calculated to make plain to human understanding this nature of God in terms that will signify a complete cause within and of itself. What grander and more comprehensive attributes could be conceived of than the endearing terms Father and Mother, as applied to God, the Supreme Being of the universe? Does it not indeed bring Him nearer to our human sense of a perfect parent's characteristics, thus to lessen the apparent separation between God and man?
