God Is Good

After commencing the study of Christian Science we soon begin to realize that God really loves us and cares for us and wants us always to be happy and well, and that He does not—as we used to think—send us anything to make us sick, unhappy, or afraid. All the trouble in the world seems to have come about through believing in more than one cause or creator; for, in believing that, we straightway deny the omnipotence of the infinite God who made everything good!

Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 398, 399), "Evil has no power, no intelligence, for God is good, and therefore good is infinite, is All." And once, when our Master was addressed by a certain ruler as "Good Master," the ruler was promptly corrected; for Jesus said to him, "Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." These two references give one plenty of food for thought, as we see that both our way-shower and our Leader acknowledged God as infinite good.
