"The Lord God omnipotent reigneth." This profound statement recorded in the book of Revelation is John's inspired declaration of God's government of the universe. The divine rule of omnipotence assuredly is all, and therefore no other basis of government is possible.

However, until the discovery of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy the practical truth of John's revelation of God's government was but vaguely discerned. Through her spiritual perception that Mind is supreme, our revered Leader makes clear the great fact of existence, namely, that God's government is the only government. On page 171 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" she states that "Mind's control over the universe, including man, is no longer an open question, but is demonstrable Science." Mind being all, there can be no other real control or influence. Mortal mind does not report facts to us, but seems to project the lie that we are involved in problems of human control and temporal government. No matter what disconcerting appearances suggest themselves in relation to government—municipal, state, or national—the fact is that divine Principle, omnipresent good, is the real source of government. God knows no opposition to Himself; therefore man, His image, knows no opposition to good. God, good, knows only His own presence and His own law.
