God's unconfined creation is revealed in the first chapter of the Bible. Christian Science bids humanity accept this true concept of creation as the glorious fact of being.

What is the true concept of God, man, and the universe? Christian Science answers that God is creative Mind, Spirit, Soul, Life, without beginning and without end. Man, God's image and likeness, the expression of eternal Life, dwells forever perfect, complete, and unconfined in the boundless universe of infinite Mind. In this spiritual universe all that is going on or can go on is the eternal unfolding of infinite, spiritual ideas.

Conversely, material science, false education, and scholastic theology declare that God, Life, is finite, that He makes both good and evil, and that man, conceived of matter, comes forth from and lives in the flesh, subject to the limitations and restrictions of a material body, mind, and universe. This misconception of God and man underlies all the ills, woes, and discords of suffering humanity. Proportionately as humankind relinquish this material concept of life and discern Mind's perfect creation will they be released from the beliefs and fears that beset mortal existence.
