God is Mind—in the classroom and beyond

The study of Christian Science leads to countless opportunities to apply the truths we’re learning in our daily lives and activities. Many students of the Bible are learning and understanding why this revelation of the Science of Christ, as practiced by Christ Jesus, is so vitally important and relevant to present-day followers of his teachings. Being the “Science” of Christ, it is the law of universal Truth—available to all mankind in every age—and it is meant to be practiced throughout eternity. It does not belong exclusively to one group of people, any more than does the principle of mathematics. The term science implies rules and laws that, when applied correctly, result in reliable outcomes.

One of the primary lessons in the study of this divine Science includes instruction in seven synonyms, or names, for God. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, specifies these names for God—Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth, and Love—in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. These synonyms help those studying Christian Science to better understand God’s nature, which, in turn, helps them to recognize and acknowledge the expression of God, good, in daily life.
