    VII. Life, Truth, and Love constitute the triune Person 27 called God, — that is, the triply divine Principle, Love. Divine trinityThey represent a trinity in unity, three in one, — the same in essence, though multi30form in office: God the Father-Mother; Christ the spiritual idea of sonship; divine Science or the Holy Comforter. These three express in divine Science the threefold, essen332332:1tial nature of the infinite. They also indicate the divine Principle of scientific being, the intelligent relation of God 3to man and the universe.

    VIII. Father-Mother is the name for Deity, which indicates His tender relationship to His spiritual creation. 6 Father-MotherAs the apostle expressed it in words which he quoted with approbation from a classic poet: “For we are also His offspring.”

9    IX. Jesus was born of Mary. Christ is the true idea voicing good, the divine message from God to men speakThe Son of Goding to the human consciousness. The Christ 12is incorporeal, spiritual, — yea, the divine image and likeness, dispelling the illusions of the senses; the Way, the Truth, and the Life, healing the sick and 15casting out evils, destroying sin, disease, and death. As Paul says: “There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” The corporeal 18man Jesus was human.

    X. Jesus demonstrated Christ; he proved that Christ Holy Ghost or Comforteris the divine idea of God — the Holy Ghost, 21or Comforter, revealing the divine Principle, Love, and leading into all truth.

    XI. Jesus was the son of a virgin. He was appointed 24to speak God’s word and to appear to mortals in such Christ Jesusa form of humanity as they could understand as well as perceive. Mary’s conception of 27him was spiritual, for only purity could reflect Truth and Love, which were plainly incarnate in the good and pure Christ Jesus. He expressed the highest type of 30divinity, which a fleshly form could express in that age. Into the real and ideal man the fleshly element cannot enter. Thus it is that Christ illustrates the coincidence, 333 333:1or spiritual agreement, between God and man in His image.
