Moral Courage—a Great Necessity

The world seems to be extraordinarily active today, physically and mentally. What is particularly noticeable is that throughout the world the supposititious forces of evil are definitely arrayed against the forces of good, and vaunting themselves to the despair of many. But let no one allow himself to be deceived; evil in its every seeming form is doomed to destruction. God, the creator of good, and of good alone, cannot be mocked.

What is causing the upheaval which is taking place in human consciousness today? What is bringing error to the surface and exposing its malicious ways? Nothing is surer than that it is the teaching of Christian Science which is doing this. In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy shows exactly what is happening. On page 559 she writes: "The 'still, small voice' of scientific thought reaches over continent and ocean to the globe's remotest bound. The inaudible voice of Truth is, to the human mind, 'as when a lion roareth.'" The "inaudible voice of Truth" is indeed stirring the unregenerate human mind to its depths; and the stirring is essential to the working out of the salvation of the entire human race. It were well that we should understand what is going on; well that we should recognize the tremendous power for good inherent in the truth which Christian Science has revealed, and which we as Christian Scientists are audibly or silently affirming, with conviction and persistence.
