From the February 1908 issue of The Christian Science Journal

All believers in the teachings of Jesus the Christ are not only devoted to the idea of one God, as contradistinguished from the heathen belief in "gods many," but they unite, in language, at least, in attributing to Him the qualities of omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience. If some of the Christian sects do not more than formally ascribe to God the possession of these attributes, it is not because of any misunderstanding of the meaning of the words which characterize them, but because of a failure, which up to forty years ago was practically universal, to follow the well-recognized definitions of those words to the points to which they logically and inevitably lead.
