God's Blessings Are Universal

The logic of Christian Science brings one inevitably to the admission that God withholds no blessing from any individual. This logic develops from the scientific premise that God is the one creator, that He is Love, and that He is universal. Mary Baker Eddy makes these assertions in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 13): "Love is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals. It is the open fount which cries, 'Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters.'"

If the human being does not answer this invitation of Love, he is depriving himself of Love's bestowals. It is no fault of Love that the majority of mankind is largely deaf to Love's voice. But little by little the message of Truth is permeating the consciousness of multitudes, and this has been going on for centuries. The life and triumph of Christ Jesus gave great impetus to the leavening action of Truth, and in our own times the influence of Christian Science theology is more powerful than perhaps is generally realized. The statement that man is God's image is made more and more frequently, and this truth, which Science adheres to in conformity with the Bible, is having its effect. The demand for mercy and justice is becoming more and more insistent throughout the world, and calls for spiritual healing are becoming more frequent.
