True Witnesses

In Isaiah we read, "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen." What a sacred privilege, to be chosen as God's servant to bear witness to His almighty power! When one is called to be a witness, he must know to what he is bearing witness. On page 465 of her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, defines God as "incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love."

It is helpful to consider these seven synonyms for God in connection with our duties as His witnesses. In bearing witness to God as infinite Mind, we refuse to believe that there is any place or opportunity for any other supposed mind to operate or find expression. This would of course preclude any sense of confusion, personal domination, or hypnotism.
