"In the way of his steps"

The question of righteous government is one vital to the happiness and well-being of every person in the world today. The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 222), "Mankind will be God-governed in proportion as God's government becomes apparent, the Golden Rule utilized, and the rights of man and the liberty of conscience held sacred."

The world is searching in many directions for a practical and provable solution of its problems, experimenting with divers courses of action, many of which fall short of success because, emanating from human will instead of divine Principle, God, they lack the acumen of divine wisdom. The attempt of mortal mind to govern men has culminated, in some instances, in a bewildering maze of human opinions, ingenuity, and invention; in unwieldy bureaucratic structures, top-heavy with partisanship, fear, greed, and dominative instinct, which would stifle individual initiative and obstruct individual spiritual development and progress.
