Having one Mind heals prejudice

The Scriptures say that "the Lord our God is one Lord"; they also speak of "the mind of the Lord." Deut. 6:4; Rom. 11:34. In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy puts these two concepts together: "There can be but one Mind, because there is but one God;" then she adds, "and if mortals claimed no other Mind and accepted no other, sin would be unknown." Science and Health, p. 469.

Christian Science helps people gain the spiritual understanding of one Mind that enables them individually to work out redemption from the sin of prejudice. In the one Mind there is perfect harmony with no conflict of interest, no ignorant opinion, and therefore no occasion for prejudice. Understanding and demonstrating what the one Mind includes is the way to overcome what it precludes.

Having only one Mind means having only one source of intelligence, understanding, wisdom, judgment, and love—and that one wholly spiritual and good, without an element of matter or evil. It means receiving—through prayer—intelligence, understanding, wisdom, and judgment that are unerring and love that is impartial and unvarying. It means knowing man as the idea of God—as perfect, immortal, expressing the harmony of his creator.
