"Now are we the sons of God"

In the third chapter of I John we read, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God." Is there any statement in the Holy Scriptures that gives us a clearer and more definite sense of our true relationship to our Father-Mother God than this inspiring declaration? We are children of God, who is the Father-Mother of all His vast spiritual creation.

On page 587 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, gives us a definition of God which reads in part, "GOD. The great I AM;" and, "Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence." Christian Science teaches that man reflects God; therefore, all the qualities or attributes of God are reflected by man, as His image and likeness. Then, since God is Life, we are the sons of Life, of Love, of Spirit. God's qualities are made manifest in man; therefore, we see God through His reflection, man.
