Good Is God

The Principle—the source, origin, force, substance—of all being is good. Not goodness, but good itself. The definition of "good," given in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, includes these words: "omnipotence; omniscience; omnipresence; omni-action."Science and Health, p. 587;

Good is usually thought of as what someone or some cause produces. But good is cause. Its effect is goodness. Good is Father-Mother, the divine Parent of man. Man reflects God's goodness, but as Paul said, "In him [God, good] we live, and move, and have our being."Acts 17:28; Good is not only the Mind that conceived us—in our real selfhood—but the Spirit that motivates our being, the Life we live, and the Soul that says I AM.
