THE divine declaration, "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good," is complete and irrevocable. Universal, eternal harmony is the fiat of divine Principle to be accepted without reservation and with great gladness. This coincides with Mrs. Eddy's statement in "Unity of Good" (p. 4): "Truth is God, and in God's law. This law declares that Truth is All, and there is no error."
Then how shall the apparently material and discordant sense of creation be rejected? By recognizing that since the one Mind is All-in-all, all its thoughts are perfect and eternal, and there are no other thoughts. "For lo, he that . . . declareth unto man what is his thought,... The Lord, The God of hosts, is his name." Not a single dissonant, imperfect, impure, sick, sinful, or temporal thought issues from infinite Mind or has any place in the consciousness of man. The thoughts of God's witness are in perfect consonance with divine Mind. They are spiritual, healthful, pure, joyous. They cognize only good, and are productive only of harmony.
Christian Science is proving the healing power of true thoughts through its literature, which is blessing men in cities, hamlets, and farflung ranches. Injurious, wayward, false thinking ceases in proportion as the scientific fact is realized that divine Mind alone "declareth unto man what is his thought." From this divine basis the alert Christian Scientist learns to speak the truth in his heart, and to utter spiritual truth audibly as the occasion requires. He is pledged to deny lack of every description, since the thoughts of infinite Mind invariably declare abundance.
