"The structure of Truth"

Church is usually thought of as the assembling of those who worship God. The original meaning of the word in the Greek was "assembly."

In the Glossary of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p.583) Mary Baker Eddy defines "Church," in part, as follows: "The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle." Structure implies an assembling of parts to form a complete whole. When the parts are recognized to be not persons but ideas expressive of Truth and Love and held together by divine law, the nature of the church universal and triumphant becomes clearer.
