Reviewing Christian Science, 2

Q. Are the terms, Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love, synonymous?

A. They are. They refer to one absolute God. They are also intended to express the nature, essence, and fullness of Almighty God. The attributes of God are justice, mercy, integrity, wisdom, goodness, and so on.—21st Century Science and Health

 

Think of this: Synonymous means equal, identical. The synonymous terms used to define God, give breadth and depth to consciousness. The terms, Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love, expand possibilities and expectations. They remove us from the trappings of human minds, which always come to ends.

The God unseen by physical eyes may seem abstract, however our imagination exceeds our physical senses. Some people call this ability the third eye, or sixth sense but it’s the ability to know and understand God as infinite or divine Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love.

It also helps to know what is NOT synonymous. Truth and the Bible are not synonymous. Christian Science and churches of Christ, Scientists are not synonymous. Christian Science and the book, Science and Health, are not synonymous. Human spirit and divine Spirit are not synonymous. Human emotion and Soul are not synonymous.

Christ is not synonymous with Jesus, but Christ is synonymous with Truth.

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. 15 The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. 16 “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.“–II Corinthians 2:14-16
