IDEAS OF DIVINE SCIENCE
The foundation truth of Divine Science is that limitless Being, God [Good], is equally present everywhere and is the ALL of everything. God is pure Spirit, absolute, changeless, eternal, manifesting in all creation. "God is everywhere, therefore God is here. What God is is everywhere, therefore what God is is here."--Nona Brooks. The logical conclusion is that there can be no other presence than God-presence; no other power than God-power; no other knowledge than God-knowledge. ---Divine Science, Its Principle and Practice, p. 28.
"There can be but one ALL. This ALL in All is God and God-Manifest. One is the number Unity. Unity is forever the state or nature of ONE. God being Infinite, there is no finite. He is all of Being, Creative Action and Creation. 'I and my Father are one'.
God is Spirit, all of Life, Love, Truth, Substance, Soul, Intelligence - all of Knowledge, all of Power, all of Presence. Like expresses like; hence, man is Spirit, Life, Love, Truth, Substance, Soul, Intelligence, Knowledge, Power and Presence -- the exact image and likeness of God, co-eternal and co-equal with Him.
Nothing can be manifested that is not, before it is manifested. As God alone is, it is God who is manifested in an ever-present creation.
That which is begotten of Spirit is Spirit. I AM before I am manifested. Man is potential in God and is expressor, co-worker, and capable of doing His will, demonstrating the nature of Spirit.
Man is Being and existence, created in the image of God's eternity and wholeness. There is one Spirit and one Body. Individually we are inseparable. Evil (so-called) is simply "falling short" or missing the mark of this Truth." -- Malinda Cramer
If Good is omnipresent, what becomes of evil? What happens to the darkness which fills a room when the light is turned on? The darkness does not move out and go somewhere else, it simply does not exist in the presence of light. Darkness is not a reality, it is merely the absence of light. In the same way when the individual thought is centered upon the omnipresence of good, evil thought does not move out and continue to exist elsewhere; it simply becomes nonexistent. Evil has no reality within itself; it can have existence only so long as an individual supports it by his belief in it. ---Divine Science, Its Principle and Practice, p. 30-31.
