Believing in One God is
the required seed of peace and a necessary foundation if we ever hope to
achieve universal harmony. This
belief, however, is useless without its practical application. How should the acceptance of One God
affect our lives, our love, our doctrine, our worldview? If we believe there is One God, then we
also must accept that all men flow from the same One God, the same One Source.
If we do not believe
this, and reject universal brotherhood, we also reject the thought of One God,
and we subtly buy into the idea of a polytheistic concept of God (more than one
God or Source). If we allow our
minds to be deceived into thinking there is more than one God, we diminish our
comprehension of the providential nature of our one Source. Once we embrace the One God ideal, we
are free to achieve a higher realization and actualization of heaven on earth -
seeing all men as brothers.
The Christ must be accepted and promoted as
providential, not provincial.

form and thought; system and structure; dogma and doctrine. His love and spirit are universal and
