From the October 1937 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The inspiration of the Hebrew Scriptures is their revelation of the allness of God, in contradistinction to the beliefs of mortals in another being of unlike nature and influence. In the allegory of Eden, which has its counterpart in each human consciousness, the serpent represented the suggestion that there was a condition of things besides good, and that it was proper for Adam and Eve to be acquainted with it.
