Universal Brotherhood

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE is a universal religion. It unites in spiritual fellowship its adherents, who are scattered among the nations of the world. It preaches universal brotherhood. Students of Christian Science need to watch their thinking carefully. They may well ask themselves, Is our concept of brotherhood truly universal? Are we truly praying, in accordance with Mrs. Eddy's words (No and Yes, p. 39), "True prayer is not asking God for love; it is learning to love, and to include all mankind in one affection"?

Further, she writes in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 444), "Immortals, or God's children in divine Science, are one harmonious family; but mortals, or the 'children of men' in material sense, are discordant and ofttimes false brethren." It is important, then, to maintain in our consciousness the facts of divine Science, wherein there are no false brethren, selfish, aggressive, deceitful, or deceived. God's kingdom is universal. Error does not exist in this kingdom, and so there is no injustice, hatred, or oppression. The divine fact is that Love and its manifestation alone are real.
