The Guileless Nation

There is a sustaining energy in goodness which, understood and intelligently utilized, will prosper and safeguard any individual or any nation. In the vacuity of evil and the all-pervading presence of good lies the hope of mankind. This dictum presents scientific idealism, having its foundation and practice in the Golden Rule and in the commandment, Thou shalt have no other gods before Principle.

Idealism, workable and dependable, insists that God is Principle, that His man moves in accord with Principle, that His universe is upheld and directed by Principle. In this program evil and mortality have no place or possibility. For Principle, as properly employed, is vastly more than law, inanimate and unintelligent. It is identical with divine Mind, Life, Love. It is the Supreme Being, the Being which constitutes the substance of man, investing him with diseaseless and continuous and limitless existence, with capacity for enjoyment and satisfaction. Here is the truth which, unreservedly and consistently acknowledged, makes for health, character, usefulness, security—the healing of the nations.
