THE CERTAINTY OF PRINCIPLE

That God is divine Love, all Christian Scientists know by a sure token, their own experience; and in no other way does this comforting Love hearten them more warmly than in the certitude of God's unvarying, impartial, ever-active benevolence. "In their textbook,"' writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 225 of " The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," "it is clearly stated that God is divine Principle and that His synonyms are Love, Truth, Life, Spirit, Mind, Soul, which combine as one. The divine Principle includes them all." Thus we see that because man exists as the idea of divine Principle he is subject to the law of God, which never changes, which favors each alike, and which functions without interruption.

Since God is the primordial substance, the ultimate basis or cause, the source of life, man's real life must be true to God in every way. Since God is likewise the source of law, man's life must manifest order eternally. Since God alone causes action, man invariably acts rightly, obeying divine impulsion.
