"PRINCIPLE IS IMPERATIVE"

The student of Christian Science soon learns that the study of Principle is fundamental to his advance in metaphysical understanding and demonstration. Principle is defined in a dictionary in part as "a source, or origin; a fundamental truth."

As understood in Christian Science. Principle is a synonym of God, and God is certainly the origin of all. The first words of the first book in the Bible are, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth," and the first words of the Gospel of John are, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." In our everyday human experience the word principle is used to indicate a fundamental moral conviction. For instance, honesty, courtesy, and so on must be fundamental to members of a civilized community if harmony is to prevail.
