The Horeb Height

Christian Science teaches that to gain a clear sense of the relationship of God and the real spiritual man, plainly revealed in the first chapter of Genesis, one must necessarily get rid of the belief that man is a mortal, forever on his knees for mercy and looking up to a faraway, corporeal God. Christian Scientists seek to understand the true nature of God as infinite Spirit and to see man and the universe as God has created them and to know them only as God knows them.

The divine theology of Christian Science teaches that God, Spirit, is the only creator, the all-knowing Mind or intelligence, the forever God who created man after His likeness; that He is the inexhaustible divine Principle of all life and being; that He is "of purer eyes than to behold evil." Hab. 1:13;

Those who accept the holy, healing doctrine of Christian Science apprehend, then, that man is not a sinful mortal but the perfect idea of God; that he is as free from the illusions of material sense as is God; that he beholds the truth of his real being because he has no other mind or origin than that of Spirit. As we search the Scriptures, we find that God does reveal Himself to mankind.
