424 — WATCH that you hold a flexible concept of God, one that you do not fear to change from day to day, as you progress. God never changes; Mrs. Eddy’s definition of Him can never change; but our understanding of Him must change and improve as we grow. If we adopt a fixed conception of God to which we adhere rigidly, and which we refuse to change, what is to distinguish us from idolaters, those who worship idols of wood and stone, or even hold an idea of God as being a man magnified?
God defines Himself in Christian Science, but as these higher definitions come to us through revelation, we must not hesitate to adopt them. Read Miscellaneous Writings, 96:10
