God's Law

Someone has wisely said, "The people's safety is in the law of God." Probably there is no class of persons who are so sure that this is true as are Christian Scientists. Their sense of security in this divine law rests on the truth which Mrs. Eddy declares in "No and Yes" (p. 30) when she says, "God's law reaches and destroys evil by virtue of the allness of God." And she makes this even clearer when on the same page she states yet more simply, "God's law is in three words, "I am All;' and this perfect law is ever present to rebuke any claim of another law."

It is very evident that God's law must be like Him since it is the expression of His allness. One definition of law is "a divine commandment or revelation; God's will." It would be impossible to conceive of God's law as being contrary to His infinite wisdom, intelligence, goodness. That which He wills must always be in accordance with and must partake of His holy, perfect, beneficent nature. There can therefore be nothing to fear in His immutable law. Instead there must be included in it the establishment of all that can in any way be desirable, and therein must be found safety from all that is unlike God, good.
