The Finished Work of God

The Christian Scientist is never in doubt concerning the completeness, the perfection, of God's creation. Christian Science has revealed to him the nature of God and of His creation so clearly that he can declare that God's work is finished. And he can therefore echo the words of the Revelator, "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

The real creation to the Christian Scientist is not, however, the so-called material universe, which to mortal sense is ever in a state of transition; the real creation to him is the universe of Spirit, the universe of spiritual ideas, already perfectly established. When Mrs. Eddy perceived God to be Mind,—the all-knowing, or the One who knows all,—she solved the problem of the nature of the real creation, because she saw it as the manifestation of Mind—spiritual ideas; just as John must have done when he beheld it from the mount of revelation, and before he could write, "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
