Genesis 1:1
1 In the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth.

John 1:1-4
1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning
with God.
3 All things were made by him; and
without him was not any thing made
that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was
the light of men.

502:24 Chapter 15: Genesis


Chapter 15: Genesis
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

The Way 

No blight, no broken wing, no moan, 
Truth's fane can dim; 
Eternal swells Christ's music-tone, 
In heaven's hymn. 

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

(Ideas and identities)
The infinite has no beginning. This word beginning is
employed to signify the only, - that is, the eternal verity and

which are embraced in the infinite Mind and forever reflected.
These ideas range from the infinitesimal to infinity, and the
highest ideas are the sons and daughters of God.

503:20 Chapter 15: Genesis

(Mind's idea faultless)
Immortal and divine Mind presents the idea of God: first, in
light; second, in reflection; third, in spiritual and immortal
forms of beauty and goodness. But this Mind creates no element
nor symbol of discord and decay. God creates neither erring
thought, mortal life, mutable truth, nor variable love.

275:6-12 Chapter 10: Science of Being


Chapter 10: Science of Being
Divine Science understood and acknowledged.  

I thank Thee O Father,...

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(Spirit the starting-point)
The starting-point of divine Science is that God, Spirit, is

is Love, and therefore He is divine Principle.
(Divine synonyms)
To grasp the reality and order of being in its Science, you must
begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle of all that really
