Nationality

Each nation, like the individual, has its so-called character, its temperament, its beliefs, its laws ruling and governing. The individual has his or her set rules of conduct, code of ethics, or spiritual ideals. According to the method of his or her education or training is judgment passed, either rightly or wrongly.

When Christian Science awakens both the individual and the nation to the patriotism of God, the many learn that God's laws are good and not evil, that all law is spiritual and not material, and are enabled to judge righteous judgment, to live amicably, and to be law-abiding. Rebellious subjects of another nation often arrive in a country, and with them arrive the same thoughts of rebellion against government. Not having learned the ways of the new country, its teachings, its freedom, its national spirit, nor felt the influence of its ideals, one may begin to rebel there and sometimes try to take matters into his own hands, acting through violence and sabotage.
