Truth Invincible

WHEN in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 380) our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, makes the tersely remarkable statement that "Truth is always the victor," she presents that which all the lies of error can never refute. She also thereby proclaims the way out of all evil. To be given in five small words a weapon of deliverance from all that is false is to awaken great gratitude in the hearts of those who are endeavoring to prove their freedom from sickness and sin. There can be no question but that all Christian Scientists are longing to demonstrate Mrs. Eddy's statement, and each hour they are praying and working to understand more clearly this invincibility of Truth.

Early in their association with Christian Science, its students accept the belief that Truth must eventually triumph; but to prove that it is "always the victor"—under all circumstances, at all times, and in all seasons, whatever may be its seeming opponent—appears to be quite another matter. It is, however, continually borne in upon Christian Scientists with ever greater insistence that it is their individual necessity to demonstrate constantly Truth's perfect potency. Mrs. Eddy also writes (Science and Health, p. 453), "Right and wrong, truth and error, will be at strife in the minds of students, until victory rests on the side of invincible truth." Thus does she refer to the warfare we must all enter upon and carry to a triumphant finish if we are to win the heaven—harmony—which, as the children of God, we have a right to enjoy.
