One Power

"There is no power apart from God. Omnipotence has all-power, and to acknowledge any other power is to dishonor God." So writes Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, on page 228 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

The human family believes in matter as having power, and in evil as having power to overcome good. Yet the Scriptures unequivocally declare, "Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all." Which are we going to accept? On which foundation are we going to build—the shifting sands of fallible human ways and means, or the infallible ways and means of God's law and government, the law which says, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me"?
