Staying in "the only"

Many people are familiar with the words that open the King James Version of the Bible: "In the beginning God...." Gen. 1:1. This passage opens the spiritual account of creation and depicts a universe filled with good. All is at peace, and man is created in the divine likeness and given dominion over the whole earth and its creatures.

Perhaps not so familiar is the following interpretation of the above Biblical phrase: "The infinite has no beginning. This word beginning is employed to signify the only,—that is, the eternal verity and unity of God and man, including the universe." Science and Health, p. 502.
