THE KINGDOM OF GOD

From the September 1942 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Throughout the Bible from the account of creation in the first chapter of Genesis to the description of the holy city given in Revelation, we find frequent reference to and description of God's kingdom, or the kingdom of heaven. For centuries men have been taught that the account in the first chapter of Genesis refers to the creation of the material world, and that the holy city, as described in Revelation, is a place called heaven in some remote, unknown locality where mortals go after they have passed through the transition called death.
