"IN THE BEGINNING GOD"

The opening words of the Bible sound the keynote for all harmonious human endeavor. These words are, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." To acknowledge God as the source of all power and creative ability in the beginning of any human endeavor is to assure one's success from the start. Indeed, if this is not done, nothing of a Christianly scientific nature is achieved.

Without correct interpretation, the words quoted from Genesis convey little of their deep spiritual import. Full enlightenment concerning them is to be obtained as we turn to the textbook of Christian Science for the key to this Scripture. "The infinite has no beginning. This word beginning is employed to signify the only,—that is, the eternal verity and unity of God and man, including the universe," writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 502 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Thus nothing that is of God can ever begin to be. The Psalmist voices God's for-everness in the following words (Ps. 90:1, 2): "Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God."
