From the March 1941 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The word "good" is commonly used in a human, unspiritual meaning, to indicate a human quality, better than bad, but still human and so not associated with, nor expressive of, the only real good, God. Mary Baker Eddy, in choosing words with which to express her discovery of Christian Science, gave the word "good" its basic, spiritual meaning, making it synonymous with God, man's only true Life.
