Capability of Achievement

Christian Science not only heals physical discord, elevates and ennobles character, overcomes sorrow and lack, but brings to light the possibility of accomplishment and achievement through the power conferred by man's heavenly Father, infinite Mind. The fact, as taught in Christian Science, that God is divine Mind, is of great help to mankind in enabling it to deny the belief of lack of ability or understanding, and to manifest the capacity for achievement.

Mrs. Eddy's declaration that God is Mind was at first ridiculed and scoffed at; since the leaven of Truth, which a woman took and hid in mortal thought, has been at work, it is no longer deemed strange to speak of God as Mind. How could it be, when it is self-evident that the creator of a thing must know the thing? God has created all things, from the least to the greatest of them; and, according to the first verse in the second chapter of Genesis, "the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them." God has created, and therefore knows, all things; and that they are good is reiterated many times throughout the Bible. Thus we see that God is, indeed, infinite Mind, infinitely expressed or manifested; as our revered Leader writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 468), "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all."
