Truth's Triumphs

To attempt to number Truth's triumphs would involve encompassing all time, since from the beginning to the end of time, Truth's necessity is to prove itself victorious over all the manifold claims of error. From the moment when "there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground," to the time which John prophesies when he declares, "I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away," Truth's work of triumphing over evil must go on. Mrs. Eddy states this clearly and all-gloriously in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 185), where she says: "The peace of Love is published, and the sword of the Spirit is drawn; nor will it be sheathed till Truth shall reign triumphant over all the earth. Truth, Life, and Love are formidable, wherever thought, felt, spoken, or written,—in the pulpit, in the court-room, by the wayside, or in our homes. They are the victors never to be vanquished."

To the student of Christian Science there is nothing which brings to him greater assurance, mingled with joy and gratitude, than the contemplation of the triumphs of Truth. Indeed, he is wise if he spends much time in magnifying to his apprehension the almighty power of Truth and in dwelling in thought on the victories which Truth has won in his own experience. Too frequently the joy of the victory sweeps him along in a strong current of feeling, and unless he is on his guard he may miss the opportunity which the healing holds for him, that opportunity whereby he may plant his feet more firmly on the Rock, Christ, and strengthen thereby his own foundation for continued future victories.
