The New Era

To say or imply that Christian Science is "made in America" and a man–made religion, as credited to a clergyman in a recent issue, has about as much force and effect with those who understand the subject as if he had said that Sir Isaac Newton made the law of gravitation. Newton was the only one among many astronomers who discovered that law and gave it mathematical expression, and it was reserved for Mrs. Eddy in these latter days to discover Christian Science and give it exact definition and expression in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and other writings.

Christian Science is defined by Mrs. Eddy on page 1 of "Rudimental Divine Science" as "the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony;" and on the same page the Principle of Christian Science is defined as "God, the Supreme Being, infinite and immortal Mind, the Soul of man and the universe. It is our Father which is in heaven. It is substance, Spirit, Life, Truth, and Love,—these are the deific Principle."
