It's always good
The Will of God
It is important that we gain the right concept of God in order to understand His will. In the Glossary of Science and Health Mrs. Eddy gives this definition of God: "The great I am; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence." Science and Health, p. 587;
Ignorance of God's good, perfect, and loving nature, and therefore of His will which expresses that nature, is responsible for discordant conditions. Christ Jesus showed mankind by example as well as by precept how to avail themselves of the divine Father's ever-present help and guidance by letting God's will be manifested in them. He said, "I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." John 5:30; Jesus proved that nothing but good could be interpreted as God's will.
In its mission of redemption, Christian Science is today uncovering the erroneous nature of human will and its evil influence on the life, health, and morals of mankind. In Science and Health our Leader points out: "Human will is an animal propensity, not a faculty of Soul. Hence it cannot govern man aright. Christian Science reveals Truth and Love as the motive-powers of man." She further says: "Will—blind, stubborn, and headlong—cooperates with appetite and passion. From this cooperation arises its evil. From this also comes its powerlessness, since all power belongs to God, good." Science and Health, p. 490;
