The Indivisibility of Good

One of the most inspiring and fundamental truths taught in Christian Science is the indivisibility of God, good. Through ignorance, the human mind has been falsely trained to think in terms of matter,—material quantity, the limitation imposed by a mortal sense of life, substance, and intelligence apart from God, rather than in terms of Mind, spiritual quality, unlimited and eternal by virtue of its divine nature and origin. There is great cause for rejoicing, however, that Christian Science is revealing to mankind the understanding that removes all illusive bonds of false thinking, unfolding the infinite nature of good.

Under the marginal heading "Indivisibility of the infinite," on page 336 of the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy declares, "God is indivisible," and further in the same paragraph continues, "Allness is the measure of the infinite, and nothing less can express God." Since God is good, it follows that good is indivisible, expressed as nothing less than the allness of God, infinite and eternal. Good is all there is, now and forever. Good partakes of all the qualities of God, expressing Life, Truth, Love, Principle, Mind, Spirit, Soul. Every quality of good is inseparable from every other quality; Truth is not without Life and Love, neither is there such a quality as Love divorced from Truth or Life, and surely there is no Life apart from Love or Truth.
