 Divine Personality



Christian Science strongly emphasizes the thought that God is not corporeal, but incorporeal, - that is, bodiless. Mortals are corporeal, but God is incorporeal.

As the words person and personal are commonly and ignorantly employed, they often lead, when applied to Deity, to confused and erroneous conceptions of divinity and its distinction from humanity. If the term personality, as applied to God, means infinite personality, then God is infinite Person, - in the sense of infinite personality, but not in the lower sense. An infinite Mind in a finite form is an absolute impossibility.

The term individuality is also open to objections, because an individual may be one of a series, one of many, as an individual man, an individual horse; whereas God is One, - not one of a series, but one alone and without an equal.
