NAME AND NATURE

From the November 1910 issue of The Christian Science Journal


NO Bible student can fail to have been struck by the many prophecies and promises, contingent upon the due honoring of the name of God, to be found both in the Old and New Testaments; and in the Psalms of David and the book of Isaiah we read of a longing and desire to know this name. Now a mere name or designation is in itself powerless to procure good, or to arouse this longing, and so we are led to search for some deeper and wider meaning.
