OUR GOD

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 465), "God is incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love." And farther on she states that these terms are synonymous and refer to one God. This means that we could never pray to Love without praying to Principle, because Love is Principle. God could not at one time be Mind and not be Spirit, because Mind is Spirit. As revealed in Christian Science, the synonymous terms show the full and absolute nature of God.

When we pray, "Our Father which art in heaven," are we not recognizing divine Mind as our Mind? Truly, God is our Mind. Man, created in the image and likeness of God, is the perfect idea, reflecting the intelligence, wisdom, and understanding of his Maker. There are not minds many; there is but one Mind, or God, the one infinite consciousness.
