A New Name for God

Today , in communities traditionally Christian, an influence is at work to drop the worship of God. This influence insists that God is a concept merely imagined and built up in thought by the yearning of humanity for a supreme authority. Perhaps what is really happening is that mankind are rebelling at traditional concepts of Deity and are demanding something more convincing. A personal Deity, tolerant of sin and sorrow, sickness and death, and even incapable of coping with these errors, no longer satisfies thoughtful people.

Actually, the doubting world needs the truth of God and a name for Him which appeals to reason as well as to spiritual intuition.

Christian Science supplies the true concept and a new name— divine Principle. In Science, Principle is not a rule, a code of conduct, a cold essence, or a formula to apply under duress or threat of evil. Divine Principle is universal, all-embracing Mind. It is Love; and when understood, it is demonstrable in every conceivable situation.
