Oneness with God

Christ Jesus said, "I and my Father are one." The Christ, the spiritual idea, is therefore at-one with the Father, in perfect harmony with divine Love. And on page 18 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has written, "Jesus of Nazareth taught and demonstrated man's oneness with the Father, and for this we owe him endless homage."

At-one-ment or unity with God becomes better known to us through the study of Christian Science. Therein we gain a clearer sense of God as supreme, infinite, as the One altogether good—as infinite Love itself. Christian Science also teaches that man possesses and reflects all divine qualities. On page 475 of Science and Health we read, "Man is idea, the image, of Love;" and Mrs. Eddy adds that man is "that which has no separate mind from God; that which has not a single quality underived from Deity; that which possesses no life, intelligence, nor creative power of his own, but reflects spiritually all that belongs to his Maker." Are we not also told in Genesis that "God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;" and that "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good"? Since God created everything good, man must consequently be very good, expressing only divine perfection.
