In your issue of the twelfth there appeared a letter in the forum in which the writer questions Mrs. Eddy's use of the term "Principle" for God. If he knew the meaning of this term as used in Christian Science, there would be no objection.

The terms "Spirit," "Love," and "Principle" are synonymous, and refer to God alone (see Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 465). These terms are not only properly and correctly used, but serve to bring God much nearer and make Him dearer to us. Your correspondent agrees that God is Love but says, "Here love is personified," thus indicating that God is a physical being with a finite form; but if this be true, how can He be infinite and everywhere present, as the Bible teaches?
