The Divine Nature and Attributes

Earnest students of Christian Science have the incentive of a continual unfoldment of new and higher meaning in every passage of our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and this awakened mentality leads to an equally exhaustless evolution of spiritual truth revealed in the Bible. As a corollary to this, such study reveals more and more the fact that the fundamentals of Christian Science are the eternal truths which were revealed to Moses and the prophets, and repeated in parables and demonstrated by Jesus, and taught to his disciples.

Paul's wonderful address to the Athenians on Mars Hill, which has been distorted into having for its primary purpose the prophecy of a judgment day and the resurrection of the dead, is in fact a radical exposition of the allness of God and an earnesst plea for obedience to the first commandment. He makes it plain that the world then as now was yielding obedience to the dictates of mortal mind and attempting to worship God, Spirit, in "temples made with hands." The fear of contagion, climate, heredity, has erected supposititious temples in which mortals bow down to health laws, utterly oblivious of the true God, who is the Lord of heaven and earth, or, as Mrs. Eddy says, "the eternal builder, the everlasting Father, . . . which mortal sense cannot impair nor mortal belief destroy" (Science and Health, p. 428).
