Unify and Conquer

To reason from the basis of the unity of God and man is to lay the foundation of an imperishable mental structure on which one may build for eternity. It brings to searchers for Truth a sure solution to their problems, an ever-expanding field for meditation; and when men begin to understand this unity, the way opens to establish peace between individuals, groups, and nations, until final victory over evil is won.

On page 9 of her Message to The Mother Church for 1902, Mary Baker Eddy writes, "The unity of God and man is not the dream of a heated brain; it is the spirit of the healing Christ, that dwelt forever in the bosom of the Father, and should abide forever in man."

Even from a human standpoint, unity is a formidable defense against one's foes. "Divide and conquer" is the slogan of those who would undermine and defeat the nations which are endeavoring progressively to march out of darkness into the light of a higher humanhood. Unify and conquer should be the watchword of Christ's followers.
