"Beloved, now are we the sons of God"

JOHN'S words, written in his first epistle, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God," are full of hope for all who understand their deep spiritual significance. The meaning of the words may have been in some degree apprehended before the advent of Christian Science, but it is only since Christian Science gave to the world its great revelation of the divine nature and of the relationship of God to man that they have been understood to have an application to all men,—to all men, even now.

What does Christian Science teach about God and man? That God is the one universal cause, the only creator, and that man is God's creation. And since the relation between God and man is that of Father to son, man is the son of God. The illusion of material sense may endeavor to obscure the truth and seek to induce men to believe that only at some future time, near or distant, will man be entitled to call himself the son of God; but Christian Science, firm in its allegiance to the absolute truth about God and man, proclaims the eternal fact that now, even now, man is the son of God.
