The Christian Science Monitor—Peacemaker

The beatitude, "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God," should inspire all thoughtful Christians with the desire to further the cause of universal peace. Men and women, the world over, are devoting time and energy to this end. But have Christian Scientists realized that their daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, is essentially a peacemaker? And are they in every way furthering its mission?

On page 340 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes, "One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the Scripture, 'Love thy neighbor as thyself;' annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry,—whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed." No one can read the Monitor intelligently without realizing in some degree that God, good, is ever active in human affairs, uniting men and nations.
