In God we trust
A Christian Science perspective.
To me, there is a reason why the phrase “In God We Trust” is written on every piece of money minted in the United States. A very sound, strong, and fundamental reason, which undergirds the basis upon which any economy can function – full and complete faith in the one God.
The economic system – the true economy of being – is not material. It’s not founded on stocks and bonds, supply and demand, economic theories, bailouts or buy-ins. It is founded on divine Principle, God, which is unerring, unchanging, and undiminished. This divine economy, which emanates from God, expresses the abundance of His infinite, eternal creation. The fullness of creation and its economy is unabated throughout all time. The perfection of God’s creation includes the promise of continual economic gain and infinite abundance for all.
A tumultuous economy has no place in the peaceable kingdom of God. The promise inherent in Mary Baker Eddy’s spiritual interpretation of the Lord’s Prayer, “[A]s in heaven, so on earth, – God is omnipotent, supreme” (“Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” p. 17), must be played out in the world’s financial markets, from Wall Street to Main Street, and in the individual lives of God’s children everywhere.
