Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health: "There is no power apart from God. Omnipotence has all-power, and to acknowledge any other power is to dishonor God." Science and Health, p. 228. Some may feel that this is a bold statement and a difficult one to prove when all the evidence before our eyes is contrary to what is good and a situation seems hopeless. How do we prove that there is no power apart from God?
The many mighty proofs of the power of God, good, over evil related in the Bible give us in the first instance the proof that God is omnipotent; and secondly, they give us the courage and inspiration to want to prove this power for ourselves.
Christian Science reveals that there is an unseen, all-powerful law of Love governing the entire universe, including man. But to avail ourselves of this power, we must open our thought to its presence and be willing to conform our thinking and actions so that they come under its rule. In doing so we experience the operation of divine law. This automatically begins to annul any evil that seems to be real. The power of God, once it is understood, completely annuls every form of error; yet it is so gentle that when one turns to it one experiences harmony naturally.
