Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God, and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. — Ecclesiastes.


THIS chapter is from the first edition of my classbook, copyrighted in 1870. It is a condensation of my treatise, and important to learners. The theology of Christian Science pervades its entire statement from beginning to end, and supports the only true medical practice. The Science of Healing, through Mind, is built on no other basis than God, the unerring Mind.

Question. — What is God?

Answer. — God is Supreme Individual Being, Divine Principle, Eternal Mind.

Question. — What is Principle?

Answer. — Life, Truth, Love, Soul, Substance, and Intelligence.

Question. — Is there more than one Principle?

Answer. — There is not. There is but one Life, one Substance, one Truth; and this is God, omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence. Omni is from the Latin omnus, — all. Hence God signifies all-power, all-science, all-presence. The varied manifestations of Science, under the different terms for it, have but one Principle.
