The oneness of God casts out evil

The inspired Word of the Bible reveals God, good, to be one and All. Declarations of God’s oneness and allness are found from the beginning to the end of Scripture. God’s oneness is the starting point of divine law as expressed in the First Commandment, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3). 

Similarly, God’s allness is a basic biblical truth. For example, early Scripture declares: “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else” (Deuteronomy 4:39).

Mary Baker Eddy expounded on the oneness and allness of God as a result of her discovery of the Science of Christianity, which is the revelation of reality in and of divine Spirit. She writes: “The Scriptures plainly declare the allness and oneness of God to be the premises of Truth, and that God is good: in Him dwelleth no evil. Christian Science authorizes the logical conclusion drawn from the Scriptures, that there is in reality none besides the eternal, infinite God, good” (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 93).
