Remember, God is All

Undoubtedly, were Christian Scientists to be polled about what their religion means to them, the answers would vary widely. For some, Science has been the power that led them from a medical verdict of terminal illness into full and active health. For others it has meant a transformation from the love (or sometimes the hatred or fear) of sin into a deep, spiritual purity. Still others would speak of freedom from doubt or lack or bitterness.

But if a Scientist were to probe deeply for the metaphysical truth that has had the most meaning for him, he might well tell you that it's a more profound understanding of God—a realization that God is All, is perfect and infinitely good, and man is His image, or reflection. God's allness: such an easy phrase to say. But a phrase that, when understood, carries meaning sufficient to overturn the world's aggressive beliefs of evil. In one of the most scientific and powerful statements ever made about God and the universe, including man, Mrs. Eddy insists upon this point: "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." Science and Health, p. 468.

One can hardly ponder this allness of the infinite Mind without experiencing a deeper love for reality, a stronger demonstration of God's goodness, a clearer recognition that man is the very expression of God—permanently representing His unchanging perfection. Admittedly, to so view God's fullness and completeness, and to discern man as His uninvadable idea, constitute a radical turn from the world's perception of existence.
