"Love is enthroned"

Today when the world is crying out for deliverance from the evil forces which seem to assail it, the student of Christian Science holds to the truth of the reassuring statement by Mary Baker Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 454): "Human hate has no legitimate mandate and no kingdom. Love is enthroned." Can this fact be proved practical in human experience? Is it possible to realize, in the face of seeming hatred, expressed in aggression, persecution, violence, destruction, sin, sickness, and death, that divine Love alone governs man? Can one know and demonstrate that God, good, is the only power, presence, substance, and Life, when, according to the testimony of the material senses, evil appears to be powerful, real, and substantial, and at times would seem even to triumph in human experience over righteous efforts to resist it?

These questions Christian Science answers in the affirmative. Whether in the case of individual problems, such as disease, lack, unhappiness, limitation, and failure, or of universal beliefs, such as warfare and misunderstanding among nations, Christian Science reveals the omnipotence and omnipresence of good and the utter impotence, the nothingness, of evil. It teaches that, regardless of what appears to be taking place in the experience of men and nations, notwithstanding the seeming success of evil's methods in the realm of material belief, evil has no kingdom and no mandatory power. Divine Love is supreme, unopposed, for Love's kingdom, the only real kingdom, has never been, and can never be, invaded by error.
