Truth, the Great Employer

If one accepted the testimony of the senses, he would be shocked at the seeming activity of evil in the world today. Mortal belief would mesmerize with the arguments of want, woe, lack, unemployment, and business depression.

With a deep sense of gratitude the student of Christian Science may turn to page 255 of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and read these words: "Eternal Truth is changing the universe. As mortals drop off their mental swaddling-clothes, thought expands into expression. 'Let there be light,' is the perpetual demand of Truth and Love, changing chaos into order and discord into the music of the spheres."

From what a different viewpoint he then regards the situation! Since it is "eternal Truth" that "is changing the universe," there is nothing to fear. How does divine Truth change the universe? In the same manner that the truth about numbers changes a mistake in arithmetic: by dispelling ignorance. Truth itself never can be changed; so all that can be changed is a false belief about the fact. It is Truth, not error, which is active everywhere, revealing its allness and uncovering the nothingness of evil in all its phases.
