God's Kingdom, the Truth We Know

"The kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:21; Jesus made this statement to indicate the spiritual relationship of man to God. The kingdom of God reveals the real man and comprises the harmony of his being. The kingdom of God can only be that which God is knowing and expressing, and the divine expression in His creation and in His man. Nothing is external to infinite Mind's allness and goodness. We must understand that God's manifestation of Himself comprises our true being or substance. This statement must be true, else God is not All.

Mrs. Eddy opens "the scientific statement of being" in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, thus: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter." Science and Health, p. 468; Then she gives us that statement of truth which completely denies mortal mind and its material dream: "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." If, while declaring that "all is infinite Mind," we are mentally consenting to having a selfhood in matter, if in some manner we seem to be existing outside Mind's allness as a separate entity, we are denying the first sentence of the "scientific statement of being." This would be the equivalent of trying to accept both the first and second chapters of Genesis, the one recording a spiritual creation and the other a material creation, as compatible. One denies the other. Both cannot be true.
