We all require to know more concerning God. Many desire this knowledge and are earnestly seeking it. The concept of God as a corporeal being is fading out. He is no longer so frequently thought of as a philosophical abstraction. In the light of Christian Science the mystery surrounding the nature of God is dispelled. God is knowable, understandable, adorable.

The basis of all being is God. Mary Baker Eddy declares this in "the scientific statement of being" in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," where she writes (p. 468), "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." The allness of Mind makes it illogical to regard the human mind as a factor in the healing or regeneration of mankind.

The present period is one in which emphasis is placed on the mental, rather than on the physical, side of life; but too often God is ignored and the human mind is regarded as basic This fact can be observed in the present tendency of medicine, where psychiatry is rapidly displacing the use of drugs. The human mind is examined, analyzed, and often manipulated. Hypnotism, or the control of one human mind by another, is even practiced on the assumption that it is remedial. This attempt to exchange physical means for mental indicates that the standpoint of mortals is changing in regard to the nature of man. One's mentality is considered of more importance than his physical organism. No longer satisfied with a material view of life, some physicians seek a mental one and are led by the belief in the reality of the human mind and act as if it were the basis of existence.
