THE HOLY COMFORTER

Mary Baker Eddy has given great spiritual light on the subject of the Holy Ghost, dispelling mystery and clarifying spiritual facts, which are fundamental in demonstrating scientific metaphysics. In"Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" she says (p. 332), "Jesus demonstrated Christ; he proved that Christ is the divine idea of God—the Holy Ghost, or Comforter, revealing the divine Principle, Love, and leading into all truth." Throughout her writings Mrs. Eddy uses many terms in establishing a comprehensive meaning of Holy Ghost or divine Comforter—such as divine Science, spirit of Truth, divine Spirit, spirit of God, and others.

In her teaching, our Leader plainly distinguishes between Jesus and the Christ, between the human concept and the divine idea of God. This is in accord with the Master's own teaching, expressed in answer to his questioners (John 8:42), "I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me." God is the Father; Christ is the Son of God, the spiritual selfhood to which Jesus alluded. Christ is not God, but is the spirit of God, eternally expressing God in oneness with Him.
