Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for January 4, 1948 is "God." The golder. text is "Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God," (Isaiah 44:6) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker.Eddy compris- the lesson- ssrmon. One of the Bible citations reads: "Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." (Deut. 32:3,4) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "The starting-point of divine Science is that God, Spirit, is All-in-all, and that there is no other might nor Mind, —that God is Love, and therefore H- is divine Principle. Divine metaphysics, as revealed to spiritual understanding, shows clearly that all is Mine, and that Mind is God, omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience,—that is, all power, all presence, all Science."
