Love in the Church

From the October 1967 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The Apostle John felt so sure of God's existence that he wrote with absolute conviction, "God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God."I John 4:16;

Certainly if God is infinite, God's tender love is infinitely present and eternally manifests in infinite ways the Love that is God. Further, God is known in Christian Science as divine Principle, the fundamental source, the basis of all law and substance.

Principle, then, must mean Love. And the all-pervading love that is in and of God is evidence of Truth also, for God's love is infinitely real and eternally the fact of His nature. Our discussion of the subject "Love in the Church" will refer particularly to these three synonyms for God: Love, Principle, Truth.
