Love Universal

The world at large, with its turmoil and unrest, is going through one of the greatest upheavals that humanity has ever known. This is bringing the errors of mortal mind—such as hatred, malice, and jealousy—to the surface, whereby they may be recognized as errors and overcome by the truth, which is ever at hand, showing us that universal salvation is the only way by which the problems of mortal mind can be solved.

Christian Science comes more forcibly to us at this time, with its healing balm of Truth and Love, pointing us upward and away from material sense to "the glorious liberty of the children of God," when all wrongs will be righted and Christ's kingdom be established on earth. When we can know the truth about ourselves more clearly, understand that man is spiritual and not material, we shall then be better able to see the truth about our brother man by realizing that as God's idea he also is spiritual and perfect, because made in the image and likeness of the one infinite, loving Father and Mother of all.

It is through the study and practice of Christian Science that we are able to understand the meaning of Jesus' words, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." Only through the struggles and self-denials of human sense do we learn how to love according to this new commandment, showing us that divine Love transforms human affection, but is itself always perfect and always the same, "yesterday, and today, and forever." Love thus transformed is indestructible and inseparable from its divine source. As we grow into the stature of manhood in Christ Jesus, we reflect and show forth the love which heals and saves us from the material so-called law of sin, sickness, and death.
