Lasting Peace

Today , as in Jesus' time, there appears to be great unrest, social and economic. Asleep in the Adam-dream of materialism, the world is feverishly seeking for peace. That real peace is not to be found by looking into the material world was understood by Christ Jesus when he said, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you." That humanity does not yet generally understand what constitutes peace is obvious, for over and over again nations of the world become involved in wars, strikes, and various conflicts. Truly, it is not yet universally known among men that "the government shall be upon his [Christ's] shoulder."

As always, the material world is suffering from the effects of believing that man lives in and by matter; that it sustains his very existence. Through this false belief, mankind is driven to selfishness, dishonesty, domination, and crime. In exact opposition to this belief is the truth which Christian Science reveals, namely, that the real man lives, moves, and has his being in ever-present Spirit, where harmony is unfailing, and that matter is unreal, an illusion, unable to provide mankind with anything substantial.
