"THE SUNLIGHT OF TRUTH"

It is interesting that the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, uses the sun as a symbol of God in her explanation of the truth. Her definition of "sun" in the Glossary of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 595), "The symbol of Soul governing man,— of Truth, Life, and Love," brings out the spiritual meaning of the word as it is used in Psalms (Ps. 84:11) "The Lord God is a sun and shield."

The sun, being radiant and self-luminous, destroys darkness simply by shining. It can reflect only its own being, which is light; darkness cannot exist where the sun shines.
