What is Divine Science?
Divine Science Basic Principles
The foundation Truth of Divine Science is that God, Limitless Being, is equally present everywhere. God is pure Spirit -- absolute, changeless, eternal manifesting in all Creation, and all is Goodness and Love.
Divine Science is a practical spiritual teaching based on metaphysical interpretation of the Judeo-Christian Bible, and includes teaching from wherever Truth is found. This is a teaching that can be practiced and applied to everyday living to improve our relationship with self, our divine nature, and in the world for all good to unfold! Divine Science views Jesus the Christ as our Wayshower. Jesus attained the highest conscious awareness of God as the living Spirit within. By studying and living his teachings we too shall know our Christ Self. "Christ in you the hope of Glory!"
The teaching of Divine Science acknowledges every advance in the world of natural science, art, and religion, as the further expansion of God consciousness in mankind. It proclaims the right of mankind, through right thinking and true living, to health, wealth, happiness, and creative expression. Those blessings are realized through the practice of the royal law that Jesus Christ gave: "But seek ye first His Kingdom and His righteousness: and all these things shall be added unto you."
Divine Science guides people to seek a personal relationship with God for their own realization and revelation of Truth. This is done through a systematic teaching based on daily meditation, prayer, and practical application. Affirmations and Prayer Treatments are a means to change ones thinking from false beliefs to experience Truth; love, peace, wholeness, abundance and joy.
