God's active expression

From the July 1980 issue of The Christian Science Journal

That man is never separated from God is basic to Christian Science. This unity is the premise for all Christianly scientific conclusions. Infinite Mind expresses itself in an infinitude of spiritual ideas, and each idea is distinct, original, and individual. Man as the idea of Mind can never be separated from the Mind that is knowing him.

Mind, Soul, Spirit, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love—terms synonymous with Deity—teem with activity. Nothing static here. God's allness must have active expression.

Man, God's idea, is the active, living expression of Life, the Life that is the I am of all being, the Life that knows neither start nor finish. Man has no mortal life or life in matter. Infinite Life could never be confined to finiteness, or matter. It can never be manipulated by material or mechanical means. Life can only express Life—gloriously and eternally.
