"Thy kingdom come"

[Original article in German]

The foremost task of the present generation is to recognize that God, good, and His kingdom are the only realities, and that therefore only that which is constructive, elevating, regenerating, and purifying is real.

How is it, then, that men feel sick, poor, and miserable? This question is asked by many who are uninstructed in the teaching of Christian Science. Let us consider Mrs. Eddy's statement on page 473 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "God is everywhere, and nothing apart from Him is present or has power." And again, on page 257 she writes, "If Mind is within and without all things, then all is Mind; and this definition is scientific." As long as men acknowledge evil as real, that is, admit that it has presence and might, they have not yet learned to acknowledge God as All-in-all, as omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. As long as they admit the reality of anything that does not issue from one source of good, they are deceived into believing in a false, misleading presence and power.

Health does not need to be created anew. Through thought spiritually led, however, an individual gains the recognition of health as the true spiritual state of man, which eternally exists in divine Mind. Sickness and lack of every kind are thus proved to be unreal conditions of the so-called material senses, and not spiritual realities.
