Man Is the Image of Love

DOES the message of Christian Science seem incongruous at a time when the world appears sorely stricken by hatred and violence, the effects of ruthless aims and greed? For Christian Science, breaking the mesmeric suggestion that these evil beliefs belong to man, bids each one of us look up and behold the man of Love's creating.

"How can we behold justice, mercy, and good will when cruelty, dishonest methods, and discord seem so evident?" might well be asked. But Christian Science does not ask us to look at imperfection, at evil and material methods, and expect to find harmony and peace there. Neither are we asked to ponder upon distress and suffering as realities, and hope, with such thinking, to bring about the manifestation of health and progressive activity. No! No impossible tasks do the inspired teachings of Christian Science require of us.
