The Dominant Power

Christian Science offers the correct answer to the many problems that are confronting the world today. Foremost among the evils that seem to be asserting themselves is the surrender of individual freedom, development, and direction, by looking to person, rather than to divine Mind. The command, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me," is being largely forgotten or neglected; personality, not Principle, is enthroned in the hearts of many. As a result, evil appears rampant and out of control; men turn to armaments and other material means for their protection, and the fear of war again puts forward the claim that there is a power stronger than God, good.

Nevertheless, God is the only power. That is what we are taught in Christian Science, what we accept and know, and what we must hold to at all times. Christian Science is not a dogma or creed. It is a spiritual teaching, leading us to spiritual facts, to spiritual life. With the truth to guide us, we need nothing else to point the path we must pursue. It is divine leading, not human will, that we must follow. Mrs. Eddy, in her acknowledgment of the one Mind, was continually turning the thoughts of her followers to Principle and away from personality.
