first of all the commandments is,
Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is
one Lord:
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy mind, and
with all thy strength: this is the
first commandment.

***
Hebrews 8:10,11
10 For this is the covenant that I
will make with the house of Israel
after those days, saith the Lord; I
will put my laws into their mind, and
write them in their hearts: and I
will be to them a God, and they shall
be to me a people:
11 And they shall not teach every
man his neighbour, and every man his
brother, saying, Know the Lord: for
all shall know me, from the least to
the greatest.

***
Isaiah 26:3
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect
peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.

(Rejected theories)
Matter and Mind are opposites. One is contrary to the other in
its very nature and essence; hence both cannot be real. If one is
real, the other must be unreal. Only by understanding that there
is but one power, - not two powers, matter and Mind, - are
scientific and logical conclusions reached.

(Mental strength)
Scientifically speaking, there is no mortal mind out of which to
make material beliefs, springing from illusion. This misnamed mind
is not an entity. It is only a false sense of matter, since
matter is not sensible. The one Mind, God, contains no mortal
opinions. All that is real is included in this immortal Mind.

(-20- The one divine Mind)
XX. Mind is the divine Principle, Love, and can produce nothing
unlike the eternal Father-Mother, God. Reality is spiritual,
harmonious, immutable, immortal, divine, eternal. Nothing
unspiritual can be real, harmonious, or eternal. Sin, sickness,
and mortality are the suppositional antipodes of Spirit, and must
be contradictions of reality.

To-day, as oft, away from sin

No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

(The divine standard of perfection)
Divine Science explains the abstract statement that there is one
Mind by the following self-evident proposition: If God, or good,
is real, then evil, the unlikeness of God, is unreal. And evil
can only seem to be real by giving reality to the unreal.
