The Dawn of a New World

[Original article in Rumanian]

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes (p. 484), "The physical universe expresses the conscious and unconscious thoughts of mortals."

Today, when we look at this physical universe, we can see that what especially convulses it is men's thoughts of worldly domination, and their grasping at worldly power and possessions—all of which are illusory, and of which our Master, Christ Jesus, told us to beware. In Matthew's Gospel a primary lesson was emphasized by our great Teacher when he rejected the suggestions of worldly domination in the words, "It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." In this response he attributed all power to Spirit, and denied decisively the of so-called material power. His refusal to temptation showed his dominion over evil; and we read, "Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him."
