Our Problems

In order to deal rightly and effectively with what we term our problems, we must know and consider what the world at large is thinking and doing, for the inharmony and suffering one seems to experience is but his acceptance of the world beliefs. Freedom to work out the Science of being will be found in the realization of this statement: "In Christian Science, man can do no harm, for scientific thoughts are true thoughts, passing from God to man" (Science and Health, p. 103).

Today the world seems to be in the throes of hatred, sorrow, sin, disease, and want, more intense than has ever before been witnessed. This does not indicate, as some would believe, an increase of these phases of error, nor a failure on the part of Christianity. The mortal belief of fear, hate, and sin has always been just what it is today, but the Science of Christianity has brought more clearly to the comprehension of the world what these errors are, and has made more apparent the supreme need of the world today, — a practical application of the understanding of God as Love.
