From the July 1908 issue of The Christian Science Journal

AMONG all theories and philosophies about the nature of life and existence, those which have found sufficient evidence to warrant the assumption of a First Cause as the basis of all things,—one God, who is Spirit, who is eternal, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, wholly good, and who is sole creator,—these present the fewest intellectual difficulties, though in many of them there are difficulties, and they are far and away the most productive of desirable practical results in the lives and experiences of those who hold them. This statement might be considered at length, and innumerable proofs of its truth offered; but all classes of Christians will admit its verity, and it is to those who are professed followers of Christ that we would speak.
