The source of all true existence is invisible to the physical senses. We read in the Gospel of St. John, "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." What Christ Jesus declared and demonstrated of the Father, the divine source of all existence, proved that source to be the one and only Mind or Spirit, called God, infinite in His own nature and goodness. Nothing could proceed from that source unlike or inimical to itself. Jesus also declared and proved himself to be one with that source. He was never satisfied with, nor did he recognize as real, anything that claimed to proceed from a lesser or opposite source. To the Father, divine Mind, he unreservedly ascribed all life, all power and goodness, all action, and he gave this imperative rule to his followers: "Call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Spirit, then, is the source of all true being, remaining pure, uncontaminated in origin and manifestation.

Christian Science, as discovered and revealed by Mary Baker Eddy, is the Science of those declarations of Jesus and makes those declarations rational, reasonable, and capable of being demonstrated by any consecrated student. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 63), "In Science man is the offspring of Spirit." And she continues, "Spirit is his primitive and ultimate source of being; God is his Father, and Life is the law of his being."
