The Brotherhood of Man

[Original article in German]

REFERRING to the one Father, God, the sole creator, and to the true brotherhood of man, the prophet Malachi asks the following momentous questions: "Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?" Since God is the only creator, Father and Mother, there is in reality only one great family, God's children. But in order to be able to see the sinless and pure children of God, we must gain a clearer concept of God Himself. Mrs. Eddy gives us in her work, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the following definition of God (p. 465): "God is incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love."

If we study deeply and seriously this definition of God, if we endeavor with our whole heart to understand better the glory of omnipotent Mind, there will then unfold in our consciousness the joyous certainly that man, whom God created in His likeness, is the enduring expression of Truth, Life, and Love, and "has not a single quality underived from Deity" (ibid., p. 475).
