Man Is Not Double-minded

It is not a compliment to speak of someone as double-minded. Doublc-mindedness implies a lack of stability, and most people would resent the implication. Yet how often individuals argue with themselves as if they have two minds, each having its own opinions and desires! Fear and confidence, weakness and strength, selfishness and generosity, seem to battle, producing a state of indecision. But the spiritual interpretation of the Scriptures given in Christian Science helps us correct this seeming conflict.

In the first chapter of the Bible, the record of spiritual creation, the word "good" is many times used to describe the nature of the results achieved. This chapter concludes with the statement that "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Gen. 1:31 Clearly, the man created by God can be conscious of nothing but good.
