Observer and Times

In the report of a lecture at Wesley Church, appearing in your issue of July 9, there are some misconceptions of Christian Science teaching which I should like to endeavor to make clear to your readers, if you will kindly grant me space to do so.

The lecturer is reported as having said, "According to Mrs. Eddy, God was mind and God was all." Mrs. Eddy, when defining God as Mind, invariably distinguishes the word "Mind" by using a capital letter; and the word used thus signifies God. Her definition of Mind, as found on page 591 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," reads as follows: "Mind. The only I, or Us; the only Spirit, Soul, divine Principle, substance, Life, Truth, Love; the one God; not that which is in man, but the divine Principle, or God, of whom man is the full and perfect expression; Deity, which outlines but is not outlined."
