Hi, this is Marsha from
Come study the platform with me from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy in the chapter called Science of Being, page 330. We’ll take one part of the platform each week for the next 32 weeks. We’ll read the words Mrs. Eddy has given us. Then, I’ll share with you some ideas that have come to me and then you get to share your ideas in the blog online in the comment area below.
If you know anyone who might like to participate in this exercise, please forward this to them to have them subscribe to my website.
If you miss some, you can catch up by going to the menu at the top
called “Study the Platform“.

The Platform from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy  330: 8 – 340: 29

When the following platform is understood and the
letter and the spirit bear witness, the infallibility of divine
metaphysics will be demonstrated.

Platform I (The deific supremacy)
God is infinite, the only Life, substance, Spirit, or Soul, the only intelligence of the universe, including man. Eye hath neither seen God nor His image and likeness. Neither God nor the perfect man can be discerned by the material senses. The individuality of Spirit, or the infinite, is unknown, and thus a
knowledge of it is left either to human conjecture or to the
revelation of divine Science. S&H 330: 11

Marsha: “God is infinite!  Just think of it! 

Immeasurable love, immeasurable goodness!!

God is the only intelligence of the universe, which includes you and me – that’s the infinitude of Love, the infinitude of Spirit!

So we have infinite possibilities and opportunities and cannot really have any lack or limitations.

What a great way to begin this platform of divine Science.”


  1. Thank you, Marsha, for your great insights and for the opportunity you’re offering us to join in this inspiring project. I love that the knowledge of infinite Spirit is left to revelation. That means that it’s coming directly to each us from God only and it’s pure, “uncontaminated by human hypotheses,” and that it heals instantly.

  2. Thanks so much! I needed that.

  3. Robyn MacIntire says:

    Thank you Marsha! I love thinking about God as infinite, unlimited goodness and supply. I am excited to study the Platform with you.

  4. Thank you for starting this study. Searching infinitude in our hearts really leads to that higher glimpse of Soul our true identity, Spirit the substance of our being and Life, the ever unfolding infinitude.

  5. Tawny Cleveland says:

    In the last sentence, Mrs. Eddy reminds us of our freedom of thought. The 1828 Websters defines Individuality as” Separate or distinct existence; a state of oneness.” As we wait and listen for God’s guidance on our sweet relationship to Him, Spirit, we can put aside human conjecture and trust the revealing and revelation of Divine Science. What a joy!

  6. John Gordon says:

    I like thinking of the infinite as totally orthogonal to the finite, meaning there cannot be any connection or continuum between the two. Thus, the infinite cannot be measured or materially discerned; it is both too big to be confined/contained and too small (infinitesimal) to be quantized or atomized. We can think of this deific supremacy paragraph as the cornerstone of the entire platform.

  7. Allyson says:

    Thank you so much for this invaluable study. It just so happens that my association address is coming up in September and our topic just happens to be on the platform. What a Divine blessing…
    So much love

  8. What this paragraph says to me is that if we are to understand God we must drop the material sense because we aren’t going to learn anything from it and we certainly don’t want to leave our understanding of God to human conjecture. So we need to set out on our journey of discovery with our spiritual sense open and ready to receive all the infinite ideas of God and the perfect man.
